Here is a late evening photo of some geese enjoying the last few minutes of sunlight. Yup in my opinion this is the most peaceful place on earth.

Notice: We are heading out of town to go camping up north so I won't be updating the site until Sunday. Until then I thought I'd post a pic that shows why this is my favourite time of the year. Have a great weekend everyone.

Photo from the south shore of Wascana Lake of a bright red glow during the last few minutes before the sun went down. I never get tired of these....

Well its that time of the week again, here are a couple of incredible skies that Regina residents have enjoyed the past week. (Skywatch Friday)

The first photo is from earlier this week of one of the most unique skies I've seen in quite some time. This was taken about a half hour before a huge thunderstorm hit the city. The different colors above the lake were incredible and unfortunately I don't think this pic did that sky justice.


The next photo is from the same evening. It was taken from the bottom of Pine Island looking up at the Wascana Lake overlook. I've always loved thunderstorms but even I have to admit this sky made me a little nervous.

Well its that time of the week again, here are some unique skies that Regina residents have enjoyed this past week. (Skywatch Friday)

This is a photo I took on the way home from the movies while driving past AE Wilson Park. It was raining and gloomy all day long and just at the last minute a large glow of pink light engulfed the sky (I've never seen anything like it). Trust me, the photos don't do it justice..





Here is a late evening shot of a kayaker passing by the pedestrian underpass waterfall on Pine Island. One never knows what the skies are going to look like in Regina, and having locations like this to view them is a treat all in itself.

One of my favourite residential neighbourhoods in the city is the Crescents. The curved tree-lined streets and character homes are a definite appeal.

Well its that time of the week again, here are a few photos of skies that Regina residents enjoyed this past week. (Skywatch Friday)

This photo was taken a few evenings ago along the shores of Wascana Lake. Pine Island (pictured here) was constructed back in 2003 as part of the Wascana Lake Rehabilitation Project. This new addition to the park has been a huge success as its already one of the most popular locations for park go'ers.

The Saskatchewan Legislative Building (one of Regina's most recognizable landmarks) was built between 1908 and 1912. Its beautiful architecture is a sight to behold. Tours to the public are offered throughout the day and its definately worth checking out.

This sunset photo was taken a couple evenings ago along the western shore of Wascana Lake. This area of the park definitely offers one of the best vantage points. Very close to where this photo was taken is the dock where you can take a ferry to the beautiful Willow Island (pictured here).

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

The first one was taken last week in Les Sherman Park while my wife and I were walking our dogs. The storm seems to come from out of nowhere, we got wet in the rain and our dogs loved it.


The second photo is of the pedestrian promenade in Wascana Park. This new addition to the park was constructed in 2003 as part of the Revitilization project. This is without a doubt one of the most scenic areas in the city.
The third and final photo is from a couple weeks ago of a beautiful sunset over Wascana Lake. I never get tired of scenes like this one and every night it seems like we get one thats different.
