Solemness

This is a photograph I took while hiking at Astotin Lake in Elk Island National Park. The water was just soft and gently moving creating a feeling of solemness. I like the way the two benches are standing in a solitary positions but are alone without occupants.

Wild Rose of Alberta

Wild Rose of Alberta

Here is a beautiful, pink rose bush that represents the symbol of Alberta. I took the photograph in Elk Island National Park near Edmonton.

According to the Indigenous Teaching and Learning Gardens website, the Indigenous used the wild rose as follows: “Used medicinally to treat bee stings, colds, blindness and diarrhea. The rose has also been used in ceremonial medicine. Rosehip rinds were eaten.”

Rainbow Over Falls

Rainbow Over Falls

The sun reflecting off of the sparkling water has created a beautiful rainbow amidst the Sunwapta Falls.

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.”

Forest of Birch Trees

Forest of Birch Trees

These are beautiful birch trees found in the forests of Elk Island Provincial Park near Edmonton, Alberta, Canada.

According to Wikipedia, “Birches have spiritual importance in several religions, both modern and historical. In Celtic cultures, the birch symbolizes growth, renewal, stability, initiation, and adaptability because it is highly adaptive and able to sustain harsh conditions with casual indifference.”

Recaptured Life

Recaptured Life

The house is abandoned and you can see from the open window right through the house to the open door.

It is weathered and worn while nature in its greenery has started to grow back and recapture life in the prairies. In fact, I think clover has started to grow in the recesses of the wood.

Icicles on Boulder

Here are itty bitty icicles hanging on for their life on a boulder. This was taken on the shores of Lake Winnipeg. I like the various textures and the colour of the water and rock.

The icicles are forming on the branches near the boulders and water’s edge.

They are wonderful creations of nature and quite pristine and perfect with its silvery reflection.

Trois Aigles

Trois Aigles

These are three eagles flying high up in the sky. Actually, only two were originally in the photograph but I decided to add the third one as they were taken the same day within minutes of each other. They are spectacular raptors. All three are Bald Eagles but the centre one is actually an immature Bald Eagle which surprisingly looks like a Golden Eagle.

According to http://www.pure-spirit.com, “Eagle conveys the powers and messages of the spirit; it is man’s connection to the divine because it flies higher than any other bird. The eagle brings the message of renewed life because it is associated with the east winds – the direction of spring, dawn and rebirth.”

Canada Geese on the Bend

Canada Geese on the Bend

The Icelandic River weaves and bends its way from Arborg all the way back to Lake Winnipeg. There were “zillions” of Canada Geese migrating and staying near their water supply. This is a black and white image that still captures the magnitude of many birds despite not being in colour.

Beautiful Fall Day

It is all about perspective. From below, you can see the huge rock, the incredibly gorgeous trees changing colour and starting to fall to the Earth beside the lakeshore. The clouds in the sky are dramatic.
