On a Wing and a Prayer ...

The desire to fly is an idea handed down to us by our ancestors who, in their grueling travels across trackless lands in prehistoric times, looked enviously on the birds soaring freely through space, at full speed, above all obstacles, on the infinite highway of the air.  
~Wilbur Wright

The landscapes they would see and the trials and tribulations they must conquer to make it back North to their breeding grounds ... 

Just a handful of Snow Geese ... making a pit stop while migrating North! 

April Aurora

During the 10th and 11th of April ... Lady Aurora danced once again!

Migration ...

My soul is in the sky.  
~William Shakespeare

The grace and beauty of Spring Migration ... like the Aurora Borealis, one never tires of seeing the birds return after a long winter!

North ...

As we bid farewell to the Snowy Owls that share our winters with us, we say "hello" to the returning Western Meadowlarks and their sweet, sweet serenade!  Spring migration is  in full swing with our birds returning daily and those that are flying thru to points North!

As We Roll Into April ...

Our spring has come at last with the soft laughter of April suns and shadow of April showers. 
~Byron Caldwell Smith

This time of the year has everyone re-exploring the world that was held captive by Winter!  The sun is warm, the colours return and 'Winter' argues with 'Spring' ...

Wishing You All a Happy Easter!

So Spring has officially arrived on the Canadian Prairies and with that 'Old Man Winter' said "take that!"  Our first big spring snow has once again blanketed this dull, brown prairie!  The arrival of Spring marks the end of my 4th year of Seasons 365 and the end to my 365 journey!  365 projects are indeed a challenge ... trying to grasp the task over a 4 year period was certainly a test and one that I truly loved.  However, another 365 is not in the works.  Instead, just my photographs!  They might be daily, they might be weekly or perhaps biweekly!  Nonetheless, I will still be sharing images from my little piece of the prairie and hopefully a few more creative takes on landscapes, wildlife and prairie life!

Thank you so much for following along ... I hope you will continue!  

Wishing you all a fantastic Spring Or if you are from the Southern Hemisphere ... 'Autumn!'

Wintery Hues ...

The first day of spring is one thing, and the first spring day is another. The difference between them is sometimes as great as a month. 
~Henry Van Dyke

Aaaaah ... Spring!  Yes, it officially arrived with cloud cover, cool winds and snow flurries!  Henry's quote rings true more often than not!  The hues of Spring have been temporarily put on hold, while those Wintery hues hang on for just a bit longer!  

Happy Spring Everyone!
