Today I have 3 different pics I took over the past year that gives a good idea of the variety of skies enjoyed by Regina citizens. (Skywatch Friday)

The first skywatch photo is one I took from our bedroom window a few nights ago, I guess a good thing about having no leaves on the trees this time of year is that you get to see more of the sky.


The second photo was taken last summer before a thunderstorm while walking along one of the pathways that run parrallel to Wascana Creek in west Regina. Thankfully our car was near and we made it to cover before the rain hit.





The third and final photo for this week is of temporarily abandoned baseball diamonds on the western outskirts of the city. During the winter months, this is a very quiet area but once spring comes around its full of kids and families playing baseball till late in the evening when the sun goes down.

Beautiful photos, but I have to say that I like the last two the most. In the second to last one the lamp adds an interesting natural vs. artificial light clash, and in the final one the colors are just amazing.

They're all great pics but I really like the second from last with the glassy reflection. The orange lamps make it look a bit magical - somewhere in Narnia, maybe?
