Week 11 is a bag of mixed treats: an iconic mountain, a child playing, a majestic bird, a flower in bloom, a night out and a playful horse.

This week there is no one photograph that speaks to me louder than the others… they all make me smile, they all evoke memories… it was a good week.

Which catches your eye… which would you like to see featured?

I did it again! I let myself get behind in posting my Project 366 and now I have several weeks worth.

Week 10 saw us heading into the mountains skiing… and passing by my favourite mountain – Castle Mountain – in Banff National Park

I was out for a walk the other morning when an unusual caw behind me attracted my attention. High in the tree above me was this bird, which further research makes me think it is a Merlin (Falco columbarius).


We decided to stop at Vermilion Lakes on the way home through the mountains on Sunday. Across the lakes you can see the famous peaks of Mount Rundle. Since the day was mostly overcast, the conditions were perfect for black & white photography.

This past weekend we drove to Kicking Horse to meet some friends for a day of skiing. As we passed Castle Mountain in the early morning light, I couldn’t help but take a few photographs. The mountain continues to fascinate and inspire me.

Last weekend, a couple dozen ducks had congregated along the edge of the Bow River at the end of the Waterfall Valley Trail in Bowmont Park. I was lucky to get several shots before they took off down the river in response to my two-year old’s squeal of delight of seeing them.

 

 


While on a hike this weekend with my husband and son, I unexpectedly came across this log with fungi growing on it. I’m not knowledgeable about fungi in the least so if someone has more details, I’d love to hear from you.

On Monday, my son and I had a wonderful hike through one of our natural parks in Calgary.
