For this last post in 2013 I decided to go back and pick some of my favourite pictures from each month of the year.
For January I chose a sunset picture,taken on a cold winter day.Snow was drifting across the fields,but the image was still very pleasing.
February is an early morning scene on my yard.Looking out and seeing the morning sun painting the snow a wonderful shade of gold is a good way to start the day.
March,and a Hairy Woodpecker is enjoying the food at the window feeder.
April is the time for Raptor migration at the Pembina Valley.The highlight was the day I got this picture of a Peregrine Falcon.
May brought another bird highlight for me when I was able to capture this image of a Common Loon,just west of Morden.
June brings out the flowers and the apple blossoms are always a thrill to capture.
July showers leave the pine needles decorated with tiny jewels.
In August I was able to photograph the old railroad trestle once again.
September evenings are pleasant and a great time to capture the full moon.
July had another highlight which I will feature on it's own.
By the time October rolls around the leaves are turning into beautiful shades of gold.
November means winter has come and seeing an American Goldfinch is a special treat.
December and Christmas come together and this year my neighbours sent me this beautiful Christmas arrangement.
Now for the highlight of my year.
A Fehr-Way Tour to Red Deer,Alberta to attend Canada's Gospel Music Celebration.
This had been a dream for a long time.I knew I would enjoy the music,but I was not prepared for the out-pouring of God's blessing during that week.
The bus ride and the care of the tour people was amazing.
The atmosphere at the venue was electric,but meeting some of my favourite groups was the best.
The quartet in the lower right corner are called Tribute.They are a fairly young group but will go far,I'm sure.
The centre picture was no doubt the best moment,as I could get my picture taken with my favourite guys,Legacy Five.
Did I mention that I am already planning on taking the same tour in July?
I can hardly wait.
Happy New Year to all my friends in Blogland.
