Back in early July,I made my annual trip to Red deer,Alberta,for Canada's Gospel Music Celebration.
As expected the event was wonderful, the music uplifting and meeting old and new friends was a thrill. Today,I want to show you a few scenes that I was able to capture along the way.
We,I went with two other friends, spent a night in Swift Current,Sasketchewan,I won't go into the details of that, just to say that I have noted the hotel and will never stay there again. You know that I like to find the positive if I can and the next morning I was out of my room early and noticed a good sized patch of Tumbleweed near the hotel. The next two pictures show you what I saw.It was a patch of beauty in a less than desirable location.
I think this is so pretty.
Upon looking around,I noticed a couple of other flowers and took a moment to capture their beauty as well.
After breakfast it was time to head down the road again.This is what I saw for mile after mile.It may look boring, but I find it peaceful and also beautiful.Yes,we did see some animals, mostly domestic cattle, but that too has some beauty. I spotted several Antelope,but had no chance for a photo.
Stopping at the side of a busy highway may not be the best idea, but when a scene like this presents itself,I had to do what I had to do. I love the layers of color in this scene. The yellow in the background is a field of blooming Canola.
On the way home a few days later, we were treated to this scene. The setting sun was painting these storm clouds with such beautiful colours. Once again,I had to stop to get a few pictures.
After being away from home for one week,I was happy to go home.I love going away, but home is still the best place to be.
We can’t always choose the music life plays for us but WE CAN choose how we dance to it.
