Its that time of the week again, here are some snapshots of skies that were enjoyed by Regina residents over the past week. (Skywatch Friday)

The first photo is one of Regina's most recognizable landmarks, the McCallum Hill twin office towers in downtown Regina. This late evening photo was taken in minus 30C degree temperatures, but I think it was worth it.
The second photo is a sunset that I was able to catch while on my way to do some Christmas shopping. One thing about Regina's winters, our skies are just as stunning as they are during the warmer months.
The last photo was also taken in arctic like temperatures. This was taken from the north shore of the frozen Wascana Lake facing southward towards the Saskatchewan Legislative Building. Yes it's as cold as it looks..lol.

I hope your city realizes how lucky they are. I love they way you are so proud of your city and how you display it to the world. My husband and I were in Regina this past summer because I was taken aback by how beautiful it looks in your photos, and i have to say it really is a wonderful city. Thanks again Guy and keep up the great work for Regina.

I cannot imagine that I would be as "brave" as to go out for a photo shoot when it is 30 below!!

Did I tell you that here in Sydney we have just finished our first week of summer?

Beautiful wintry looking skies! I love the pictures!

Guy,

It does look cold. And, I don't have to experience it vicariously anymore, since Toronto has finally been immersed in a deep freeze of sorts. Yikes - what a change from the warm temps of November.

Thanks for visiting my site. I have not been to Regina, but enjoy looking at your shots.

VioletSky said...

I really, really, like those two towers and the way the sky looks between and reflected in them.
And in the last shot, even the lamp posts look cold!

Linnea W said...

Lovely series...I hear it's bitterly cold where you are! I don't think I'd have clothes warm enough to survive in sub zero temps. Stay warm. I guess you won't be shooting much outdoors!

Amy Bender said...

These are excellent.

A Scattering said...

Brrrrrrrrrr! It's getting that way here now as well. Have a great week, Guy. Elaine
