Alberta Snapshot: Fenceline.


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!  🙂


  1. 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…..

    • 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!

  2. 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.

I'm delighted to hear from you - thanks so much for your comments!
