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

The first one was taken last week in Les Sherman Park while my wife and I were walking our dogs. The storm seems to come from out of nowhere, we got wet in the rain and our dogs loved it.


The second photo is of the pedestrian promenade in Wascana Park. This new addition to the park was constructed in 2003 as part of the Revitilization project. This is without a doubt one of the most scenic areas in the city.
The third and final photo is from a couple weeks ago of a beautiful sunset over Wascana Lake. I never get tired of scenes like this one and every night it seems like we get one thats different.
