Photo Challenge – Rise/Set

Rise/Set

I love both sunrise and sunset so to find just one image for a Photo Challenge this week almost paralyzed me! I have so many….I have too many!

What tends to be my favourite type of “rise” or “set” pictures is actually PRE-sunrise or POST-sunset when the glow takes over our beautiful Alberta sky.

When I have an interesting subject to go along with the majesty above me – well…it ends up being just too good to be true!!

Photo Challenge – Favorite Place

Here’s an easy photo challenge. This week we are to depict our Favorite Place

image

For me….it’s HOME. My absolute favorite place on this entire planet is my home. Nothing provides me greater comfort than this scene as I come home from anywhere…whether it be from checking pastures nearby, from vacationing faraway, from returning from anything as mundane as getting groceries. THIS is my Favorite Place

Photo Challenge – Beloved

Beloved

Of course, the second living being (beyond dear hubby!) that I thought of, after seeing this was the weekly photo challenge, was my dog. To clarify, that would be dogs we have now and dogs we’ve had that have since passed on. Our canine friends, companions and working partners on this ranch are absolutely our beloved treasures.  We could not function without them!

Photo Challenge-Variation

Variations on a Theme is the official photo challenge this week put forth from the team at wordpress…the engine behind the world of bloggers. My domain of agriculture never fails to provide me a response to these challenges.

This time it’s our young heifers. Normally they line up nice and orderly to the table for their morning “breakfast” but here comes my variant. Not content to just come and dine this little cowgirl literally came UP to dine!

Photo Challenge – Flãneur

I love words. I love learning new words. I love using clever words in my day to day conversations and had so much fun with this quirky little behaviour on an almost daily basis when in the office during my career days. Imagine my delight when the Photo Challenge presented today for the week is a new word for my files – Flâneur! What a cool word and what a cool behaviour it defines….”a detached observer of street life and surroundings…..”

I found myself being fascinated in such a way on my vacation in B.C. last month and sure enough I collected some images that reflected this fascination with the world around me.
