Well its that time of the week again, here are some photos of skies that were enjoyed by Regina residents this past week. (Skywatch Friday)

How about a 'late evening' theme this week? Here is a photo of a pedestrian bridge located along the western shore of Wascana Lake. This bridge was built in 2003 and serves as part of the Wascana Lake Revitalization Program, its definately a great asset for park goers.

Willow Island on Wascana Lake. This little island can be rented out for Weddings or reunions and serves as one of the best vantage points in the entire 2300 acre Wascana Park (one of the largest urban parks in North America), yes even bigger than Central Park in New York City.

That place is such an eye candy. I love the bridge image and reflection a lot.

Simply gorgeous. I can see why it would be a popular wedding venue.

That second shot is really stunning. Did you use some kind of filter? (I'm thinking of picking up a neutral density filter when I'm in the States this summer.)
