A cluster of B-side photos remain – Fort Vermilion’s former times Buttertown homes, winter farming scenes (equipment and buildings, deposited in their last left locations, ‘medias res’), icicle lens edits and former MacKenzie highway construction vehicles. It’s this winter’s tail-end, a time to close winter out … and get-on with spring.

Listening to – Edie Brickell & the New Bohemians’ ‘What I am,’ U2’s ‘All Because of You,’ Cat Stevens’ ‘Morning Has Broken,’ Depeche Mode’s ‘Policy of Truth,’ T. Rex’s ‘Bang a Gong,’ Wang Chung’s ‘Dance Hall Days’ and Neil Young’s ‘Cinnamon Girl.’

    The top photo: if you cropped off the barn at top the remaining image would look like some cloud enshrouded mountain range covered with snow. Very enjoyable images, especially the old rigs.

      Hey there, SwittersB … Interesting to see what can happen with the crop … thank you! I’ve posted the result. 😉

    What a great group of photos – that snow has to be very deep for cattails to show only their tips. I love the buildings, the trucks, the icicle –

      Hello, hello …

      Can you imagine taking fifteen minutes to come down from the highway to the cattails? It’s good that there are several other photos from different points along that trek.

      I’m enjoying your Seattle Arboretum images … I might have to come down and check it out, personally; your photos are beautiful and convey much about the space/context.

      🙂

    The light and hazy distance of the first picture is so evocative for me, the snow like that, with a feeling of crispness and readyness for scrunching through.

      Hey there, Jim:

      The light in this image is about an hour out from sunset, golden-hour kind of light that extends in these early days of spring, part of what draws people out-of-doors after being inside for so much of a cold, snow-laden and long, long winter … with warmer temperatures one of the healthiest things to do is to have an outside fire that burns through the night and to remain with that fire, beyond house-bound confines until dawn with others. The sleep that follows is a good mental reset in this move into spring.

      This time of year also holds the best in Alberta skidooing weather, this last month of snow is a warmer time … you can trek along rivers and trails through much of northern Alberta.

      I’ll be checking in on your writing … soon. Take care!! 😉
