A prairie thaw, sky filling through the afternoon with cloud – a long drive southward into more and more of spring and sunlight provides ample opportunity for the meditation that becomes photography and each photograph – a photo walk with wheels so to speak, travel traversing a third of our province in a five-hour trek. Quiet, without news, story or music, the drive becomes a photographer’s dream – unending windshield time. That afternoon’s thought remnants are found in these images.

Listening to – Radiohead’s ‘Pyramid Song,’ Sigur Ros’ ‘Glosoli,’ Snow Patrol’s ‘Garden Rules,’ Bryan Ferry’s ‘Just Like Tom Thumb’s Blues,’ U2’s ‘California’ and Tom Waits’ ‘Christmas Card from a Hooker in Minneapolis.

Quote to Consider – “The eye should learn to listen before it looks.” – Robert Frank

  1. Hello! What gorgeous landscapes.
    It’s been so long since I’ve been able to visit your blog, or any other for that matter. I’m getting caught up all over WP today.
    Love these images

    • Hey there, Laurie:

      Thank you. Like you, I am catching up on things blog-wise; we’ve been around the province with our cameras in the past two weeks.

      Spring is definitely finding more and more of us with the passing of each day and it’s great to be outside, away from home and physically moving to see what’s what as we warm with summer’s approach.

      We had hail for the first time this year just last week.

      Without doubt, you will be planning some extended rides with friends. Good!

      Take care … 🙂
