The Glenbow Museum

Museums are great places to visit.  You can learn a lot of interesting facts from visiting them.  They can provide a nice haven on a cold winter day.  I’m going to take you on a short trip thru the Glenbow Museum in Calgary, AB.    These photos provide only a small snapshot of what you can see.  And, they are only of things I’ve found interesting.  If you visit – you may see totally different aspects to record.  I know one of my friends will find the photos very interesting.  He has gone on other “Photo Armchair Tours” with me.  S0 — Payton, let’s visit the Glenbow!

Where is the Sun?

We’ve had cold weather, we’ve had snow, we’ve had wind.  Now this morning we have fog.  As thick as soup.  With fog comes frost and sometime some great photos.  I was out this morning with the camera.  Check out the Gallery – A frost morning  and see a bit of what I saw.

Could this be a sign of Spring?  Or wishful thinking?

Snow and more snow

I realize we aren’t getting near the amount of snow they are getting in Eastern Canada and the US.  If you ask anyone here they’d say we have way to much.  Unless you are a child, sometimes it is difficult to appreciate the snow.  However, I did manage to capture someone who does love the snow ……………………..

Feathered Friends

I have two feeders on trees just outside my kitchen window. For most of the day there is a lot of activity around them. Watching the antics of the birds, mostly Red Polls (part of the Finch family) makes doing the dishes more enjoyable. A Downy woodpecker drops by once in awhile also. I’ve posted a few photos of the visitors in The Gallery –  “From My Kitchen Window”.
