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

The first photo was taken a couple days ago during the only bit of sunshine we've seen in about a week and a half here in the city. This photo is of the western tip of the beautiful Willow Island on Wascana Lake, definitely a must see for all Regina tourists.
The second photo this week is an early morning photo of the magnificent Pasqua Lake located about a half hour drive northeast of the city. This lake, and others nearby like Echo Lake, are located in the beautiful Qu'eppelle Valley. This area is commonly refered to by Regina residents as 'cottage country'.

Arija said...

Love your first shot into the sun and the little contrasting white cloud in all that gold of the second.

SandyCarlson said...

Lovely, lovely reflection. Like glass, but not quite as the water ripples into an Impressionist painting rather than a realistic one. Delightful.

I see it's chilly up there!

Lucy R said...

Fantastic images!
