October 4, 2020 Our week in the mountains over, it was now time to head for home. Before breakfast, I made one last visit down to the lake to take in the views.

October 2, 2020 After my pathetic attempt yesterday morning, I was determined to do better with my Harvest moon shots today.

I, as one who relies on the Auto setting for mostContinue reading “Autumn 2020 – Part 35 – Shine on Harvest Moon – Jasper National Park”
October 1, 2020 Our ritual evening journey to the lake shore was augmented this day, by me carrying down two patio chairs, so we could be more comfortable as we sat watching the sun sink below the mountain tops.

October 1, 2020 After breakfast, the routine was always the same. I would grab my camera and head down to the lake to see what scene today’s sunshine was painting.
