Its that time of the week again, so here are four more photos of skies seen by Regina residents throughout the year. (Skywatch Friday)

Football season is only a few months away and in my opinion it can't come soon enough. Here is a photo from last year of a thunderstorm brewing over the 30,000 seat 'Mosaic Stadium', home of the CFL's Saskatchewan Roughriders.








Winter photo of a sunset over the pedestrian bridge leading to Pine Island in Wascana Park. I think people can tell this is one of my favourite areas in the city with the amount of times I post photos from here.





Here is a photo from a couple weeks ago of a reflection of the Legislative Building on some patches on Wascana Lake that are finally melting. Its been a longer and colder winter than I can ever remember and the warm weather can't come soon enough.


Here is a photo from last October taken of Wascana Lake during a very colorful sunset. My wife and I (as well as our dogs) are very anxious for evenings like this to return in the very near future. Now that I think about it, I bet the ducks are anxious as well.

Old and new on Scarth Street. One of the two giant McCallum Hill office buildings towers over the facade of an old building of the same namesake.

Its that time of the week again, so here are five photos of skies that Regina citizens have enjoyed in the last little while. (Skywatch Friday)

The first photo was taken last month along the north shore of Wascana Lake near the docks to Willow Island. Notice the 'Danger, Thin Ice' sign in the foreground. Unfortunately my photo does not do this incredible sky justice as it was one of the most unique I've ever seen.
The second photo is from late last year. Its of a late evening sunset above a pedestrian pathway that winds around the far west side of Wascana Lake beside the Albert Street Bridge. Definately one of the most picturesque and one of my favourite areas of Wascana Park.


This photo was taken a couple weeks ago in -45C degree weater. Yup it was the coldest winter in 30 years here in Regina and thankfully we've made it through it.



The fifth and final photo was taken late last year from the Pine Island Overlook in Wascana Park. This location is definately one of my favourites in the city to capture my Skywatch photos!

A prominent Regina landmark is the Saskatchewan Legislative Building. Built in 1908, this building is one of the most beautiful in all of Saskatchewan

Today I have 3 different pics I took over the past year that gives a good idea of the variety of skies enjoyed by Regina citizens. (Skywatch Friday)

The first skywatch photo is one I took from our bedroom window a few nights ago, I guess a good thing about having no leaves on the trees this time of year is that you get to see more of the sky.


The second photo was taken last summer before a thunderstorm while walking along one of the pathways that run parrallel to Wascana Creek in west Regina. Thankfully our car was near and we made it to cover before the rain hit.





The third and final photo for this week is of temporarily abandoned baseball diamonds on the western outskirts of the city. During the winter months, this is a very quiet area but once spring comes around its full of kids and families playing baseball till late in the evening when the sun goes down.

Even in the winter months, Wascana Park has a distinct beauty about it. The many paths within the park are worth bundling up and going for a walk

Here's a summer evening shot of storm clouds forming over beautiful Wascana Creek that flows right through the center of the city. (Watery Wednesday)

Pic of a pathway exiting Victoria Park in downtown Regina during a very cold winter afternoon.

Throughout the year this beautiful park in the heart of downtown is host to many big events such as the Fire and Ice Winter Festival, Taste of Regina, and the ever popular mid summer party, the Regina Folk Festival which features many outdoor concerts and displays for festival goers.
