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

This photo was taken a few evenings ago on the Pine Island pedestrian bridge during a beautiful Regina sunset. This area has proven to be one of the most popular areas in Wascana Park, which comes as no surprise by its beauty.
Canadian Geese are frequent fliers here in Regina. Hundreds call Wascana Park home, as a matter of fact there are so many in the early summertime that they collect hundreds and relocate them to other areas in the province. This was taken the same evening as the photo above.

Amazing sunsets. I love the first shot especially.

Lovely sunset shots! You are lucky to live there.

Glennis said...

I am interested in the catching and relocating of the Canada Geese. Over here they gather in areas and foul the land, so there is a hunting season for them, just for one long weekend each year to keep the numbers down and move them along a bit. They have never attempted to relocate them. Must be quite a big job.
Great photos of the setting sun.

J said...

That is beautiful, and looks very calming. A great place for a twilight stroll.

diane said...

Two different sky colours and both beautiful. Birds are lovely too.

Reader Wil said...
