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.
This is my first contribution to Becky’s October Squares Lines photo challenge.

This is my contribution to the Friendly Friday Photo Challenge: Remote.
My first thought was of some of the remote spots I visited when living in Saskatchewan, Canada in late 1990s. I once had the passenger side front wheel of my truck disappear into a hole at a water level control connecting Little Quill Lake and Middle Quill Lake. It was at the end of several miles of rough track that stopped at the water control point. I had to pile rocks in the back of the truck to get the rear wheel on the ground and the front wheel out of the hole.
Another time at a section of Little Quill Lake I managed to lock my keys in the truck and had to break into it with an old piece of barbed wire that I had stripped the barbs off.
Here’s a photo of a sunset over a marsh at Little Quill Lake. It was winter so I was probably the only person within 10 miles and it was -40° at the time.
A contribution to Becky’s July Squares: Blue photo challenge.
Just in case anyone is wondering if that’s -40° Celsius or Fahrenheit, it’s both. When you get down to -40° it’s the same.
I picked this shot because this part of Ontario is under a heat warning with temperatures in the 30s with the humidity making it feel like the 40s.
