Scenes from a Dog Walk at Sunrise

January is here… the time of never-ending winter.

The hours of sun are increasing, but the light still begins at a reasonable hour, allowing for a chance to enjoy the day’s beginnings. Having a dog to walk with simply adds a smile to the experience.

The past year has been difficult. I lost my Roland, my husband, after a short but intense battle with brain cancer. Grief now encircles my world.

Mornings, and walks like this, bring a sense of comfort and hope.

We met our neighbour and his dog, Maple, while walking in the field. Maple and Odin are best buds. But, since Odin was at doggie daycare this morning,  Lacie had Maple all to herself.

Be gentle with the one who walks with grief
If it is you, be gentle with yourself
Swiftly forgive, walk slowly,
Pause often,
Take time
Be gentle as you walk with grief

Project 52 | Week 22 – Yellow

Welcome to week 22 of the Pet Photographers Project 52 blog circle. The theme for this week is “Yellow”.

The winter past was long and cold… the spring, damp and chilly. But now yellow dandelions adorn the open fields and the yellow sun shares a welcoming warmth.

This week we opened our seasonal site at St. Malo, Manitoba. From May through September, this is our home away from home, our summer happy place. It felt so good to once more walk amongst the dandelions.

“Dandelions, like all things in nature, are beautiful when you take the time to pay attention to them.” ~June Stoyer

Journey 2018 Day 363 – light pillars

Light pillars danced through out our Manitoba sky.

The cold continues. But so does the beauty…

“When it gets cold enough for ice crystals to form in the air, light pillars can appear before your very eyes. Natural and artificial light reflects off the crystals as they suspend in midair, creating pillars of vibrant color that shoot into the sky and give the illusion that you’re about to be beaned up on an episode of Star Trek.”

Journey 2018 Day 362 – sundogs

The weather has turned cold… most likely the coldest it has been so far this winter.

But with the cold comes beauty…

A winter rainbow…

“There was such a glory over everything. The sun came up like gold through the trees, and I felt like I was in heaven.”
~ Harriet Tubman
