Shedding Time

This is a younger small big horn sheep who is shedding his winter coat and so it looks kind of ragged. Tourists often mistake this for a sheep being sick or undernourished but this is part of its yearly pattern. Everything is cyclical.

Swirly Top Mountain

Swirly Top Mountain – Photography by Mary Mikawoz

Swirly Top Mountain

This is a photograph I took in the National Parks near Jasper and Banff, Alberta. I love the swirly top effect of the mountain. It kind of reminds me of a chocolate and vanilla swirl ice cream cone.  

It has not been strip-mined for trees as that would be rectangular and boxy in appearance. This is natural and probably represents where normally the snow lands when it is winter time. I believe we had hiked up quite high in the mountains when I took this image.

Rainbow Bridge

Rainbow Bridge = Photography by Mary Mikawoz

Rainbow Bridge

The light and sun has created an awesome rainbow across the Sunwapta Falls near Jasper, Alberta, Canada. It is radiant in its expression of water and sunlight intermingling to create a magnificent display. 

According to Wikipedia, “Sunwapta Falls is a pair of waterfalls of the Sunwapta River located in Jasper National Park, Alberta, Canada. The falls are accessible via a 600 metres access road off the Icefields Parkway, which connects Jasper and Banff National Parks. The falls have a drop of about 18.5 metres.”

I Bow to You

I Bow to You – Photography by Mary Mikawoz

I Bow to You

I took this photograph in the Canadian National Parks around Jasper and Banff, Alberta. This young elk is saying “I Bow to You.” Out of reverence for the Divine, he makes notice of the greater powers of this Universe. He is serene and majestic. He is enjoying nature as we all could. His eyes are closed as he seems to meditate and contemplate the bigger picture of life and gives thanks for his wonderful world.

Beaver Dam

Beaver Dam

The basis of this is a photograph I took at Elk Island National Park near Edmonton, Alberta. They have a number of hikes and walkways. This is the walkway going through the swamp area. There was this finely built architectural featured called a beaver dam on the left-hand side of the swamp. 

I once saw and was in a replica beaver dam at the Manitoba Children’s Museum in Winnipeg, Manitoba. It was absolutely fascinating how the beavers build their homes.

Blue Hue Mountains

These are beautifully and individually sculpted mountains. Each mountain is different from the next. There are various hues of blue ranging from the mountains to the sky. I hope you like it too. 

This photograph was taken in the Banff-Jasper National Parks in Alberta, Canada.

Wilderness

Wilderness

This is a photograph I took in and around the National Parks in Banff and Jasper, Alberta. It takes in the breadth and beauty of the wilderness. The lake is pristine clear blue and the mountains are limited in the amount of snow they have on them. There is a reflection of the mountains in the water below. Finally, ]bushes up front frame the picture well and bring you into the image as if you were there.

Spectacular Alberta View

Mikawoz Spectacular Alberta View

Spectacular Alberta View

This photograph was taken on top of the ride on the Lake Louise Gondola ride. It showcases the emerald green lake of Lake Louise and behind her, the great Victoria Glacier.

According to Wikipedia, “Lake Louise is named after the Princess Louise Caroline Alberta (1848–1939), the fourth daughter of Queen Victoria and the wife of the Marquess of Lorne, who was the Governor General of Canada from 1878 to 1883.”

Also, “The turquoise colour of the water comes from rock flour carried into the lake by melt-water from the glaciers that overlook the lake,”

Beginning and End

Mikawoz Beginning and End

Beginning and End

I took this photograph of this beautiful flower both at its bud stage up top and in full bloom below. It is like living on this Earth, end of life is happening for some while birth and new life is happening for some. Others in various stages of the in-between life. I like the contrast in stages. There is spiritual meaning in this photograph.

Bullwinkle

Mikawoz Bullwinkle

Bullwinkle

I have named this beautiful moose “Bullwinkle” after the TV animated series of the same name. It was taken in Alberta, Canada.

According to Wikipedia, “The Adventures of Rocky and Bullwinkle and Friends is the blanket title for an American animated television series that originally aired from November 19, 1959, to June 27, 1964, on the ABC and NBC television networks.”
