October Squares: Lines of Sandhill Cranes

For day 12 of Becky’s October Squares: Lines photo challenge here are several lines of Sandhill Cranes flying to roost at sunset.

Taken at Little Quill Lake, Saskatchewan, Canada in the autumn. Sandhill Crane flocks can number in the hundreds of birds as they congregate in the area on their way south for the winter.

As a double lines contribution there’s also so interesting streaked cloud.

Weekly Prompts Photo Challenge: Brazenly Bronze

This is my contribution to the Weekly Prompts Photo Challenge: Brazenly Bronze.

I spent part of the weekend looking for some bronze autumn colour and then remembered this shot from Saskatchewan in the late 1990s.

Quaking Aspens reflected in a slough in the autumn.

Cosmic Photo Challenge: A Vision of Tomorrow/Through the Eyes of Yesterday

This is my contribution to the Cosmic Photo Challenge: A Vision of Tomorrow/Through the Eyes of Yesterday.

It’s well known that tomorrow never comes but winter will be arriving in Ontario at some point in the near future. So for the “through the eyes of yesterday” I went with a couple of photos from two years ago. Both were taken when it was still autumn but show what was and is coming.

Snow on autumn leaves.

Throwback Thursday

Snow Geese Take Off

Throwback Thursday travels back to Saskatchewan in the late 1990s and Snow Geese on autumn migration.

This is a section of the Last Mountain Lake National Wildlife Area in Saskatchewan. A staging areas for Snow Geese heading south on autumn migration. I was on an observation tower that overlooks part of the Lake photographing small groups of birds flying in to join the main flock on the water. At this point something spooked the main group and the flock took off as one.
