A Morning Walk at Bunn’s Creek

It was a cloudy/dull morning – not a great type of day for photo taking – but I headed to Bunn’s Creek in my never-ending search for the Cardinals that are often seen there. Not seen by me – but by many others. A few months ago, I met a woman who showed me the… Continue reading A Morning Walk at Bunn’s Creek

Fort Whyte Alive after a Fresh Snow

This morning I decided to head over to Fort Whyte Alive and so that is what I did and arrived a few minutes after they opened at 9:00 am. I stopped on the road as I was driving in to get a photo of some of the Canada Geese and Sea Gulls at the edge… Continue reading Fort Whyte Alive after a Fresh Snow

Pelicans at Lockport

Pelicans are so much fun to watch. Sometimes they are a bit of a challenge to photograph, but I just keep snapping and usually end up with some fairly good photos. One thing I noticed today is the way they fish together. Each bird in the group dives at the same time and comes back… Continue reading Pelicans at Lockport

Parkade Cleaning Day

The apartment building where I leave has underground parking, so once a year we are ordered to remove our vehicles for the day for cleaning. There is very little street parking in the area and what little there is has a maximum time of 2 hours. So, I decided to head north and visit Grand… Continue reading Parkade Cleaning Day

Fort Whyte Alive – Oct 20/19

I spent the morning wandering around at Fort Whyte Alive and took a few photos. As usual, you can click on one and scroll through them at a larger size to see them better. Dedicated to my brother-in-law, John Panting (Oct 20/41 – May 9/19) John and my sister Sharon were married for 51 years… Continue reading Fort Whyte Alive – Oct 20/19

Riding Mountain National Park in Early Fall – day 4

This is my last morning here and I decided to sleep in a bit and hang around for the breakfast that comes with the lodging.  I have an east facing window in my room and saw that there was no chance of a sunrise picture in the park anyway.  After I woke up, I packed… Continue reading Riding Mountain National Park in Early Fall – day 4

Riding Mountain National Park in Early Fall – day 3, part 3

We were still in the Bison Enclosure and had just left the White-tail Deer in the last post, and I was continuing along on the one way road towards the exit.  This road has lots of curves, especially once you get into the bush and it is quite a narrow road (which is why it… Continue reading Riding Mountain National Park in Early Fall – day 3, part 3

Riding Mountain National Park in Early Fall – day 3, part 1

Although it was very cloudy again this morning, I was up and out of the B&B first thing in the morning and headed to Grayling Lake in the hopes the clouds would clear enough for morning sunrise pictures.  It was foggy and I remembered getting some beautiful foggy sunrise pictures there a couple of years… Continue reading Riding Mountain National Park in Early Fall – day 3, part 1

Pelicans

I wasn’t successful in finding Pelicans when I drove north to Lockport last week, but I headed up there again this morning – just in case they had arrived.  It was a bright sunny morning, with the temperatures heading up to the high teens again, but it was very windy once I got there. A… Continue reading Pelicans

A Drive to Lockport

This morning after breakfast, I decided to take a drive north to Lockport. According to Wikipedia, “Lockport is a small unincorporated community in Manitoba, Canada located just 28 km north of the city of Winnipeg.” A few years ago I managed to drive there when there were dozens of beautiful Pelicans around and I hope… Continue reading A Drive to Lockport
