Sunday Snapshots

My summer vacation... at home in Saskatchewan : )

up in a pasture, overlooking the Jackfish Lake, SK

The blue asters filled the ditches along the road to the beach where I grew up.

asters in abundance by the roadside

A stormy day at any prairie lake makes for some SERIOUS and unforgettable fun!

my youngest boy and his waterproof cast at Cochin Beach, SK

The sun breaks through...



Cedar Waxwings above the deck at the cabin...



And lastly, one of MY favorite memories - when the wild water turns green and the clouds begin to let some sun through...

Cochin Beach, Jackfish Lake, Saskatchewan

Happy Sunday everyone!  It's good to be back : )

First of all I wan´t to thank you for the magazine. It was nice to read especial the article about you and your work.
When I see the pictures in your blog I often wonder if it is a photo or if it is an embroidery. I´ve never seen so beautiful things before.

Many thanks/ Elaine from Sweden

I hope you can understand what I mean, I´m not so good in english.

Oh Elaine, you are so welcome! You know when I see photos of Norway & Sweden, I think they are some of the most beautiful places on earth. Most people don't see much in the prairies / flatlands, but the people who live here notice a lot of beauty. ; ) I'm glad I could share that with you!

Beautiful photos! I love the one of Jackfish Lake-very surreal coloring in the water. I am sure you will be creating more gorgeous pieces of art with our collection of summer shots. Can't wait to see them as they come to life!

What wonderful shots you got on your holiday. The beach looks wild and wonderful. :)

Danielle said...

If I lived where you do, I'd never take a vacation away... gorgeous photos, Monika. Thank you for sharing at Your Sunday Best this week.

Wow, really beautiful. The lake water with wind-blown waves looks like our ocean here in CA.
