A Beautiful Day in the Peace – Wapiti region of Alberta

What a glorious day. We have wet snow forecast for tomorrow yet today was a lovely sunny day and the countryside was aglow with all the coloured leaves, the rich autumn sky, and lots more too.

On my way home from Grande Prairie today, I took time to take a few photos — actually I took a huge whack of photos. I have so many that I wish I could share all of them with you. I’m going to have to create a couple different posts featuring some of the different subjects. For now, here’s a trio (though I took oodles) of some snow geese on their fall migration here in my neck of the woods. Enjoy!

This first photo shows a variety of waterfowl including some ducks and geese.


You wouldn’t believe the cacophony as they all took flight. You would be correct if you notice there are both Snow Geese and Canada Geese here.

The colours were brilliant today. Lots and lots of bright yellow, but also some oranges and a few hits of red here and there. Autumn is such a comforting time of year.

Our fall colours haven’t really started yet — we haven’t had a frost yet though, surprisingly.

So pretty. I was saying this morning that very soon we’d be hearing these fly over our house in the early mornings.

The fall colors have started to show a little here. I would like to have a nice sunny day in an explosion of colors ๐Ÿ™‚
