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

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.

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!

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.
