Project 52 | Week 12 – In Search of Colour

As of this week I will once more be participating in the Pet Photography 52 Weeks Project. This will involve one post a week with an added twist… a blog circle.

With this challenge, we, a group of pet photographers, are given a weekly theme. All participants will post a photo related to the current theme and then will link to the next person in the blog circle. By clicking on the link at the bottom of the post, the reader is taken on a journey from one blog to the next, all connected by the same topic. How fun is this!!

This week’s theme is “Colourful”… a bit of a challenge on the prairies in March.

On this particular cold, March morning we were up early. I happened to glance out the back window and was struck by what I saw. A bright red/orange glow had split our monochromatic winter landscape. There it was… our chance for colour! I hurriedly got dressed, grabbed the dogs and headed out, camera in hand.

Nature did not disappoint.

Heading home. Mission accomplished!

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
