Late April / Late Snow

I drove off into Red Deer County a bit east of town this morning to capture what happened overnight. Yeah, it snowed again last night, but thankfully it’s all disappeared already. It didn’t take very long as the temperature when I headed out was only -1C and it quickly climbed above zero. It was a very interesting sound when all of a sudden all the snow melted and the water drops started falling off the tree branches. It sounded like it was raining. It was  quite a nice morning to be out.

Prairie Minimalism

It’s not hard to make a minimalist image on the prairies as it is very flat in spots. Here, some grain, or maybe potash, cars wait on a sidetrack at Belle Plaine, Saskatchewan. Hopefully they are empty grain cars to be filled and shipped to the coast. The farmers need to empty their granaries of last years bumper crop so they have room again for this years harvest.
