Recent Snapshots

I was in the country side on the weekend for a family event. 

I decided that I would take advantage of nearby large water - Pigeon Lake to get some sun set photos on the water. 

I love the warm blue colors in this shot. 
This side of the lake is mostly privately owned so just about every property featured docks. 

There is a large museum in the area which features large equipment from the early 1900s.  These are on display on the grounds so I was able to capture a few despite the building being closed.

This packer`s original yellow color scattered between the rusty surface was being highlighted by the low sun.

Several sunset shots taken this weekend. The left and right on Pigeon Lake and the center one is on a large pond along Highway 13.

The fields are featuring bales and long shadows created by the low sun.

The far field is a very nice green. It no doubt will be harvested later in the  season.

On the right, a pink sky with highlighted bright yellow spots above a yellow canola field. I did not take time earlier in the day to get some bright yellow canola field photos.

  1. Hello, Sylvia! How lovely to end the day by seeing such beautiful sunset scenes. The fourth photo worked on my imagination because I haven’t seen the fields of yellow canola flowers in person but imagine it would similar to the rapeseed blossoms for vegetable oil, which I’ve been familiar with.


    1. Yoko, It was called rapeseed when I was a kid. In North America, the term "canola"—a contraction of Canada and ola, meaning oil—became widely used to refer to rapeseed. Thanks for visiting. Sylvia D.

  2. You've captured some great sky colours, Sylvia. The canola in the evening is also very pretty. Have a good week.

  3. Beautiful lake! I bet the museum is interesting with all the old farm equipment. Happy Monday!

  4. Nice colours in all the shots :)

  5. I love the way you describe some of your photos...I should do that some time. The yellow canola field with the long shadows is beautiful. And I love the sunset over the lake. It reminds me of going to the lake in the summer when I was a girl. Hugs!

  6. Great countryside and water captures, I imagine one or two of these might be appearing in your 2018 calendar?
    Happy Mosaic Monday from Florida.

  7. Those water scenes are especially lovely. Loved that first, especially. What wonderful light you had!

  8. Sylvia - I am in love with farm fields and hay bales - the round and the rectangular ones - they make for great shots - and yours is no exception. I just wish it had a 'scratch and sniff' so I could smell the freshly cut hay!

  9. Dearest Sylvia,
    your shots are simply gorgeous, I'm so grateful to you for sharing them !

    Wishing you a most lovely remainder of your week,
    I'm sending my dearest love to you

    XOXO Dany
