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

This photo was taken a few evenings ago along the shores of Wascana Lake. Pine Island (pictured here) was constructed back in 2003 as part of the Wascana Lake Rehabilitation Project. This new addition to the park has been a huge success as its already one of the most popular locations for park go'ers.

The Saskatchewan Legislative Building (one of Regina's most recognizable landmarks) was built between 1908 and 1912. Its beautiful architecture is a sight to behold. Tours to the public are offered throughout the day and its definately worth checking out.

This sunset photo was taken a couple evenings ago along the western shore of Wascana Lake. This area of the park definitely offers one of the best vantage points. Very close to where this photo was taken is the dock where you can take a ferry to the beautiful Willow Island (pictured here).

Lovely sunsets as always in your town! But I simply love the shot of the Saskatchewan Legislative Building (that is a name I would never try to pronounce!)

I have often wondered what it looked like closeup! And it is a great building, with wonderful architecture!

2sweetnsaxy said...

More absolutely breathtaking shots. :-) There's nothing like a few clouds to create a glorious sunset, especially over a lake.

Hildred and Charles said...

As a prairie girl (Alberta, a great many years ago) I think that prairie skies are the most fabulous, and what a wonderful job you have done in capturing their beauty.

Hildred and Charles said...

As a prairie Girl (Alberta, a long time ago) I am very partial to prairie skies, and you have done such a fabulous job in capturing their beauty.

LaY hOoN said...

I love your sky shots.
Wish one day I hav chance to visit your beautiful country .

Bryan said...

The skies in the first and last photos are beautiful, but for some reason I prefer the middle photo. I guess I just like the dreary, colder feel.

magiceye said...

all breathtaking images!

Jack and Joann said...

Wow, you have 72 comments already!
I can see why. Love your sunsets. That building in outline looks like an Italian church. And is it the building in your header photo too. That shot is hard to beat but your are doing it.

Arija said...

I am glad you have started posting more than one shot at a time. Just wonderful sunsets.
I've only been to Regina once and that was subliminally as we were driving from Montreal to Vancouver.
I thought it was a lovely place then, and your pictures bring it really to life again for me.

I love the one of the building. I just love the colors. It's a very impressive building. It looks like something out of old England.

beautiful skies in regina. MB

Jan K. alias Afanja said...

All three are great shots again, Guy.
Although normally the sunsets are favourite, I really love the shot of The Saskatchewan Legislative Building against that dark and clouded sky too because of the drama in it.
Enjoy your weekend!

You experience the most beautiful sunsets in your neck of the woods ... glorious !!

Great photos !!

Have a great weekend :-)

Lee Spangler said...

Guy Thanks so much for inviting m e and visiting my site. This may be the only way I'll ever see Regina. I go to B.C. every year and enjoy being in Canada but make it to Saskatchewan is unlikely. Liked your shot across the lake

Great pictures and dialog. Your comments always add value and tells me I must go North (and East) to visit and enjoy the sites. I like your third picture. The sky looks so full of life and excitement. Thanks for sharing.

Oz Girl said...

I'm not sure which is my favorite? They are all beautiful in their own right... the legislative building is such amazing architecture. I do so love old buildings with history.

Great series of shots for SkyWatch!
