As many of you know, one of my hobbies is amateur photography. I love photography, I also love being out and about on the trails, beaches, mountains, valleys, and plains that make up our beautiful country. Since today is a day set aside to celebrate the planet a.k.a. Earth Day, I thought I would share with you a few of my favorite photographs I’ve taken over the years.

Winter in the woods, and everywhere
First blooms of Spring
A fiery sunset in Stephenville, NL, Canada
One of the first signs of Spring is when the American Robin returns. Last year a pair of robins made a nest in my neighbor’s flower box – it was wonderful to watch them raise their young. May 2018
In our area fog is a frequent weather condition in spring
Banff, AB, Canada in May 2016
Summer in Newfoundland & Labrador is simply beautiful. This is the tiny hamlet of Felix Cove located on the Port au Port
Peninsula , NL, Canada

Mists hang over the ponds in the wee hours of a summer morning – Noel’s Pond, Stephenville, NL, Canada

Is there anything more awe inspiring than a rainbow on a summer’s day? Yes, TWO rainbows – Fort McMurray, AB, Canada

Fall means spectacular color no matter where you travel in Canada. On Earth Day this is a subtle reminder that ALL life matters.

Pinchgut Lake, minutes from Corner Brook, NL, Canada – I couldn’t resist trying to capture the beauty of the wildflowers, the lake, and the hills

I hope you have enjoyed these photographs. and I hope you enjoy a bit of nature on this Earth Day. Please help, do your part so future generations can view and enjoy our beautiful planet.
