Bowmont Natural Area, Calgary, Alberta. Photographed 2 January 2014.
(If this post (pun intended) looks familiar to you, you may be subscribed to my blog There is a Light, which I will shutter within the next little while. Sadly, I’ve been very lax with posting new content there…and I think there is an overlap with Flowery Prose now, anyway. I plan to move all of the photos from TIAL over to FP within the next few weeks, so I apologize in advance if these posts are “reblogs” for a few readers).
I hope you all have a wonderful weekend! What have you got planned? I’m hoping the weather will finally break and I can get out for a long walk, but it’s snowing like mad now and there is still a high wind chill. Maybe tomorrow! 🙂
Great picture. Winter is certainly dragging on isn’t it? Have a good weekend.
Thanks! I think maybe…just maybe…we’ve rounded the corner with regards to the weather. 🙂 Hope you had an enjoyable Saturday!
I love the picture, I keep thinking spring will be along soon. My mother also said “late easter, late spring” this year is proving her right I am afraid…. I am in Portugal enjoying the sunshine…..
I saw the photos you posted from Portugal yesterday – it looks so beautiful and warm there! It’s kind of nice that it’s not quite tourist season yet, you have the beach pretty much to yourself!
yes it is beautiful. the best part, cousins who play host and tour guide!
Have a good weekend Sheryl. Hope it stops snowing for you!
Thanks, Cathy! What a difference a couple of days makes…we’re now on the plus side of zero degrees and the snow and ice is starting to melt! I’m so happy I could do a little dance! 😉
Hope you’re enjoying your weekend!
Thank you very much!
I hadn’t seen this one before–it’s wonderful!
Thanks tons! I love the way the sky looks when we have a Chinook – it’s so dramatic.
It’s a new photo to me. We have a Chinook wind too but we give it the boring name of Nor’wester. The sky is always very dramatic with a NW arch. I like the sky but I don’t like the wind.
I agree, the wind can get a bit tough to take. Until I moved to Calgary, I hadn’t realized that so many people are affected by the changes in the barometric pressure when a Chinook occurs – everyone here seems to be plagued with migraines and dizzy spells whenever one rolls in. I’ve even started to get headaches myself the past few years.
The headaches and the migraines….yes, we get all that too. Barometric pressure does extraordinary things.
Love the pun, and the photo! The layers of color with the snow, grass, clouds, and sky are particularly nice!
Thank you! I like that – “layers of color” – that’s exactly what I love about that scene, too.
Have a wonderful day! 🙂
Love the different horizontal layers and mix of textures in this picture!
The light was so beautiful that morning, the Chinook cloud really made it look special.
nice image, Sheryl. love the moody layers.
