Hey, how'd you get the duck to swim to *just* the right place in that photo? It's beautiful-- the colours, the reflection, the silhouette of the trees, all perfect.

Thank you for sharing it; Happy SWF!

Ulrika K said...

That is soooo beautiful, wow!

(I'm not mistaken, my best friend - now living in Edmonton - is from Regina. :) )

What a romantic view!!!

Lirone said...

Admit it... that's a rubber duck you placed there on purpose... a real duck couldn't possibly be posed so beautifully! ;)

So much to like here - the gorgeous copper colours, the lights in the trees... great skywatch!

Nice to be reminded of that, the booming city part, when viewing. Hard to imagine! And what a refuge from the booming it must indeed be. Great SWF shot.

Certainly does not look to be in the middle of a city, but it is definitely a beautiful scene.

You have a lot of nice pictures - I'll have to keep visiting. Canada is beautiful country, but too cold for my Florida blood. :)

How fabulous! There are so many amazing places within cities. I think the best cities are those where people can escape the noise and pace. This is just lovely.
