My favourite photograph from week 7 was of Castle Mountain in Banff National Park.

I just finished reading the final post of a six part series on the Urban Outdoors by Family Wilds written for Nature Rocks in which they wrote about hiking in the urban outdoors. Living in Calgary, I am extremely lucky to have a wide and diverse choice of hiking options. Just yesterday my son and I had a great hike through Waterfall Valley in Bowmont Natural Environment Park. It’s great to be able to get out in nature without leaving the city!

While I have been continuing my Project 366, I haven’t posted my photographs since Week 4. I’m going to rectify my oversight this week, starting tonight with Week 5.

Hotei Buddha is a cheerful, contented travelling Buddhist monk. Holding a cloth bag filled with precious items, it is said that rubbing his large bare belly brings wealth, good luck, and prosperity.


Castle Mountain in Banff National Park always intrigues me with the light and shadows, the bowl of snow in behind and the river that flows across the front.


The mist hung low and the clouds threatened snow but the lake was still and the light was soft.

Photographic inspiration can be found everywhere around you. Today I took advantage of the beautiful weather and took a walk around my neighbourhood with camera in hand. I found inspiration in the textures of bark and snow, a gnome that made me laugh, green spaces hidden among the houses, the local wildlife and an unexpected wagon wheel sitting against a fence.
