A favourite locale in Alberta is the tiny town of Sylvan Lake. The people of the town did a fine job of redesigning this popular summer city into a year-round delight for locals and visitors alike. This walkway is built along the lake’s edge providing a great vanishing point perspective.
We were driving along country roads in Alberta, thick with fog. Although slippery, my husband managed to make a stop when I espied this pretty shot. A little trial and error put a sun star in the perfect nestled position in the branches. The splayed God’s rays and deep long shadows provided balance for this spindly group of trees.
I took advantage of the last moments of Fall and drove to the Niagara Region. The air was cool but the sun was shining. I stopped for lunch at an organic Farm to Table Organic Café and on the property was a large patch of sunflowers. This particular flower’s petals reminded me of blades of fire.
