The Rockies









The Rockies

The Rocky Mountains in Alberta are truly beautiful. I took the photos that I am sharing this morning from a car as we drove to Banff National Park. To be honest, it is very frustrating for me to be passing so much beauty and not taking any photos.  So, I used to holf my camera out of the car window and shoot.  I was lucky to get a few images that were in focus.

Northern Wild Raisin









Northern Wild Raisin

Several years ago all the northern wild raisin shrubs on my property died off, and last summer I noticed a few new ones growing around my property.  Hopefully they will return because they produce colourful fruit and their leaves are so red in the fall.

Dildo, Newfoundland - The Book




Dildo, Newfoundland - The Book

I thought I'd let you know that my new book, Dildo, Newfoundland is available in booksellers across the island as well as the Dildo Brewery and Museum in Dildo.  Of course, you can always order online at - https://www.flankerpress.com/product/dildo-newfoundland

This book has photos dating back to the 1980s to 2020 and captures the town as it continued to grow after the Dildo Brewery became extremely popular and Jimmy Kimmel discovered it!  

In the past, when I used to send my Photo of the Day to individuals, I couldn't share photos of Dildo because the emails would be rejected as Spam.  :)

Rushy Pond Sunsets







Rushy Pond Sunsets

When I lived in Grand Falls in the 1970s, I visited Beothuck Park often in all seasons.  Today, I am sharing photos of a couple of sunsets at Rushy Pond.  If you are living in the Grand Falls-Windsor area, I recommend a few photos of the sunsets at Rushy Pond!

Indigo Bunting







Indigo Bunting

I photographed one indigo bunting and that was in the Audobon Corkscrew Swamp Wilderness Sanctuary in Florida.  There have been sightings of this bird on the island of Newfoundland as well, though I have never seen one here. This particular bird wasn't in full mating plumage.

Tiger Swallowtail Butterfly











Tiger Swallowtail Butterflies

Yesterday, I saw my first tiger swallowtail butterfly of 2021.  Unfortunately, my lilacs aren't blooming yet, so it flew past and I didn't see it after.  I have been "hunting" bugs in my yard since the dandelions started to bloom.  I have seen a few smaller butterflies, lots of ants, several types of flies, and several bumble and honey bees.  Of course, there are enough black flies to carry me away, but it has been a bit windy which keeps them away!

I have several Butterfly albums on Facebook and you can view Tiger Swallowtail Butterflies here -

Black & White










Black & White

This morning I finished uploading photos to my Black and White 3 album and will start a new one this evening.  In the pre-digital age, I carried 2 cameras; one loaded with colour slide film and the other with black and white film.  I often think of the weight I had to carry everywhere I went: 2 camera bodies, several lenses, flash, extra batteries and film, lens cleaning supplies.  Today, your phone has replaced it all.  When I carry my digital SLR, I usually only carry one body and 1 lens and my phone.  It is a lot easier on my much-older body!!  :)
