• The Other Side of Spring

    Even if I don’t have anything good to say … I still manage to write a blog! Spring in Saskatchewan means weather that has occasionally turned nice. Folks here are beside themselves excited to feel the occasional warmth of the sun, listen to the birds chirping and … well … you get the picture. With… Continue Reading

  • a prairie evening

    This past Monday was a good day with a great evening. Could wildlife be a factor? I found myself in the truck wandering around the countryside to see if there was anything to photograph.

  • Finally a hat trick!

    Strange things happen when I watch too much hockey – it starts to get all mixed up with my photography. I suspect it’s a uniquely Canadian problem. During a prairie winter, wildlife can be scarce. On a cold, windy February day, most creatures from around here are hunkered down hoping for faster global warming to… Continue Reading
