Old Barn by Courtenay, BC
This week we are going to the outskirts of Courtenay, British Columbia on Vancouver Island. Spring is in it's full glory with green grass and yellow flowers. This old barn takes us back in time. The snow covered mountains create a great backdrop as they fade into the sky.
Windmills and Blue Sky
White windmills against the big blue Alberta sky with rolling fields. It looks peaceful and picturesque.
Rocky Mountains 2
Rocky Mountains 1
The Rockies are one of Canada's most visited destinations, and for a good reason. They are a great contrast to the flat prairies and grasslands. They are highly visible from a distance and tower over the land like well formed statues made by the best artisans. They are under constant changes and keep rising each year. They capture you with their beauty and etch them selves into your memories.
The Chinook Arch is a South Alberta phenomenon. You know the weather is changing when you see it. The Chinook wind brings a sudden warming and winds with heavy gusts.
From a photographic point of view it brings contrasting colors and interesting cloud patterns.
