Well its that time of the week again. Here are some skies that were enjoyed by Regina residents over the past few months. (Skywatch Friday)

The first photo this week was taken a couple months ago during one of our walks around Wascana Lake. In my opinion, scenes like this never get old and I for one look forward to the different sunsets we get to witness every night over Wascana Lake.


The next photo was taken yesterday while driving on Lakeshore Drive in Wascana Park. The roadway is a great place to take a drive on especially when the weather isn't cooperating. Some of the views are spectacular and you have to continuously remind yourself that this massive park is right in the middle of a bustling urban city. Thankfully now that we are out of the deep freeze I can now get out of the car to take some more winter shots.

Robin said...

Beautiful. I particularly like the silhouette in the first shot.

Cold fronts all around this week it seems, those I'd rather have mine than yours, even with the dust and the hail. At least it's warm enough to get out of the car ;).

You're right - those scenes could be anywhere, or the middle of nowhere. Isn't it nice to find such beauty in winter?

You are the Sky Captain in a world of silhouettes and shadows!

Carver said...

I love the contrast between the two shots. The second one looks like a winter wonderland.

J said...

Wow, I just saw the temperature widget on your sidebar - don't think I could cope with that level of cold. I like how the last picture has really captured the shape of the trees too.

Helena said...

Gorgeous photos as always, Guy! I love your header image as well... very peaceful. :)

Maria said...

Both images are very beautiful in their own kind of way. The first one with the warm colours and the second one with all the reflections from the trees, nature sure is fantastic.
