I guess maybe that ice should have been moved inside...

Our thunderstorm season was delayed a few weeks here in Calgary. But by golly it's here now. I'm harvesting a fresh crop of these every couple of days, it seems. This afternoon was the most intense deluge yet!

I haven't seen anything like that for decades. But you made good use of the icy spheres to craft a fascinatingly geometric image.

The flower is fading, and so is the evening light...

Montrealers are so friendly. On our last day, one even waved to wish us bon voyage, as we drove past Le Stade Olympique. :) Seriously, we had a blast visiting this city. No doubt we'll be back...

It is good to see a place so unique.  Canada has such variety in culture and landscape, all of it well worth discovering.

After the thunderstorm began to lift at the Parc Nature du Bois de l'île Bizard west of Montreal, we took a walk through a lovely forest full of maple trees. At one point this low stone wall came in toward the path, cutting another line through the trees and dappled light.

That is wonderful! Looks like it might make a great (metallic?) print.

I was at the muster point. Where was everybody else?

I always wonder about places like this. Someone must have built it, someone or perhaps even many, once worked here. It must have stories to tell, but it stands there silently - until you cross it path and hear echoes of its past and stand a while to honour it with this touching photograph. I love your are artistic sensibility. There is dignity here, even though "pretty" is never a word anyone would use to describe it.

What did I do after work today? I hung a show. With the able eye & hammer of Derek Bisbing, we put up 8 of my prints from my portfolio "Coal Oriented". The show is at the delicious Holy Grill, where Derek curates an on-going series of shows. If you don't already know it, Holy Grill is across the street from Mountain Equipment Coop. My prints will be up for the next 3 months. Come for the photography, stay for lunch! Stay tuned for more...

If there were a way of transporting myself I would be there in a flash to see the show. Even in this rather excellent image, I can see that you have an elegant show. I so wish I could be there to see it as I loved the examples from this series that you posted.

+Carolyn Fahm, I'm particularly drawn to arcs and repetition, and this had both. :)

It's a beautiful early summer day today in the Calgary area. This is a view towards the mountains earlier in the day, from the Leighton Art Centre in the hill country southwest of the city. Deb & I were there to check out their annual Clothesline Festival & Art Sale. A fun, short road trip through some lovely countryside.

Late afternoon on a boardwalk at Parc Nature du Bout de l'île Bizard. The storm clouds from earlier in the day are sailing away, the light is beginning to draw down. The birds have gone quiet for a moment. The season itself is still transitioning from winter through spring into summer. There's a feeling standing here... you know the one? Like being with good friends you haven't seen in some time. The initial rush of excitement and catching up chatting is over, and some deeper things have been shared. As the visit nears its end, there's a collective pause, a bit of holding the breath. Nobody really wants to leave because there's a sense of anticipation that something good is still about to happen...

Your description coupled with the image is very vivid and is what I have felt in my special places in magical times that are among my most precious moments of all.

Scattered thunderstorms are over Montreal today, but at the Parc Nature du Bois de l'île Bizard west of the city, the clouds are distant. We hear the piercing, sweet songs of cardinals and yellow warblers, the tapping of a small woodpecker, the more raucous calls of flickers and ravens. Grey squirrels scamper among the trees near the water that gently laps against the shore. Far off there's a droning boat engine, but it's easily ignored. Here for a little while we can pretend there's nobody around but us chickens.
