Happy Thanksgiving

With many of my posts, I find myself looking for a picture to go with my words.  Recently, I've had a difficult time coming up with words to go with my pictures.  The first two photos are from my trip last week to Cold Lake, AB.  The last 3 are from a walk around my in-law's farmyard, while I was waiting for turkey dinner.  It was a beautiful day that led up to a delicious meal, and we wrapped it up with an evening on the couch.  I hope everyone had as wonderful a Thanksgiving as I did.  To all my American friends, I hope you have wonderful plans to look forward to!
I loved how the sky started to turn a bright blue all of a sudden, and its contrast with
the orange of the still low sun.
I really like how the path of the rocks seem to be following the clouds.  Or should I reverse that?
Who doesn't enjoy a windmill?  I don't see many of them being used anymore, and this one is no exception.
I enjoy interesting textures, especially the fungus.  I think I should do an entire series of fungus shots.
Loved the gnarled root behind the wheel.  I'm in the process of finding out if I can take that root, which is huge, and
move it to my yard to create a garden around. 


  1. Oh I love the words you chose for your photos which are wonderful. B

  2. The photos are incredible and your words are too.

  3. Lovely selection of photos. That first one is dreamy. What I liked most about this post beside your photos was that you described why you liked the photos.

  4. Ahhhhhh.... I love that shot of the rocks following the line of the clouds...or the clouds following the line of the rocks. I would love to sit there and gaze out at the world for a while.

    1. If my friend wasn't waiting in the car, I could have sat there for hours. Or at least until my butt got sore...

  5. Those pictures are just breathtaking. All of them.

    I forgot that Canada had it's Thanksgiving earlier than ours. I hope you had a lovely dinner and a nice time thinking back over your blessings.

    1. We had a very nice Thanksgiving, 2 of them actually. Now yours is just around the corner. May you find lots to be thankful for. And thank you for the lovely compliment.

  6. Andrea--what a beautiful collection of photos. The sunset picture is just incredible. You live in such a lovely place--
