Baseball diamonds are pretty quiet this time of year. This photo was taken on the western outskirts of the city near the airport.(Skywatch Friday)


And here is a bonus 'Skywatch Friday' shot of Wascana Lake. This fiery photo was taken in October from the overlook on Pine Island, definately one of the best vantage points in the park as well as one of my favourite spots to walk our dogs. How much longer till spring?

Be sure to check out other 'Skywatch Friday' shots from around the world at:

These sunsets are absolutely awesome. I love sunset pics. They are my favorite pics to take - maybe because I struggle to get up early enough for sunrise, LOL.

fishing guy said...

Guy: Two really neat skies for you to share. I couldn't believe the lake was ice free until I read October.

Pat - An Arkansas Stamper said...

You have some of the lovliest skies in all of North America, Guy! Excepting, perhaps, the southwestern part of the U.S. (I'm prejudiced, though.)

Sally in WA said...

Beautiful colors in that sky!

Beautiful sunsets, both of them. And great places to walk your dogs! What kind do you have Guy, and how many? I just have the one, a golden lab, but I'd love to get a second dog soon. I take some of my best pictures when I'm out walking with him.

Great Sky Watch Friday! Have a good weekend!
Bella :)

Now that's the top sky I've seen this week. Great colors, and timely too: spring training is just around the corner, but now I see why they have it down in Florida and not in Canada!

Beautiful Regina!!! Hope to visit someday. Winter here in Utah..along the Wasatch Mts. Front (and Back)...cannot come soon enough either. We've had an unusually wicked winter racking up record snow depths. I feel you winter "plain" /pain from here...skp:)
