Autumn 2020 – Part 20 – Golden Moment – Jasper National Park

September 30, 2020

After our Edith Cavell hikes and before heading to the cabin, we stopped on the shores of Patricia Lake to enjoy the fine views on this sunny day. Spectacular.

Standing before a scene so sublime,

trapped in a golden moment of time,

shining aqua waters mesmerize,

while nature’s beauty fills our wide eyes.

Every tiny wind blown ripple,

this smooth lake surface does stipple,

as kayaks floated silently past,

we knew this golden time would not last.

Capturing the photographer, in the moment.
Kayaks on Patricia Lake.
On Golden Pond

After working for 43+ years (38 years 7 months with my last company), I finally got that promotion I waited my entire career for……retirement. I have been exploring this new career for the past 3+ years and while it is not always exciting, the chance to do what I want for myself and my family instead of what my company wanted me to do has been rewarding. While I still miss the social aspect of working with a team of great people, I have managed to keep in touch with many from my former team and I have many friends and family members who now fulfill this part of my life. Now that my Patty has retired, we are able to spend more time in pursuits and with people who are near and dear to us. I enjoy photography, gardening, working with my hands, walking, cycling, skiing, travelling, reading and creating special photo and video productions obtained in my first pastime. I may not become wealthy in any of these pursuits, but I already feel I am rich in life experiences far beyond any expectation.

    1. Thanks Marie. I did not even see the colour of the water when I shot the closeup of the kayaker, until I put it on the computer. It was a golden day. Thanks for reading and commenting. Hope all is well. Allan

    1. And I did not realize that the water around the kayak was gold until I go the photo onto the computer. Bad eyesight and a small viewfinder. I was lucky to capture that one. Thanks for reading Ann. Allan
