Scenic Sunday - Contrasts

Remember this picture from March? Overlooking downtown Calgary ...
Bleak, grey, colourless.

Look at it now ....

One more - the "Before" shot - bleached of life ...

And the "After" photo - born again!

Calgary has been rained upon for nearly three weeks solid - it is lush and green, vibrant and gorgeous.

But the rivers are really high, and fast flowing, and when the dogs go down to paddle, I nearly have a panic attack - 'cos I sure ain't jumping in to rescue them!

Have a great and super Scenic Sunday.


  1. Fantastic contrast of photos! Unbelievable! If it makes you feel any better, even here in Melbourne, Australia we are getting rain upon rain! It's a long time since I have seen so much day after day! And it's winter cold weather too!

  2. Beautiful pictures of a great City -- one we haven't visited for way too long. (When we did, it was in the "after" phrase.) Amazing what a little sunshine and rain can do isn't it?

  3. Nice photos of the greenery of Calgary. It does appear lush and quite the contrast to winter.

  4. It's great when it all greens up again, magical. All winter I wonder if it will ever be green again and thne. bish bash bosh, green

  5. I have only just discovered your lovely blog through SkyWatch. Such beautiful photography and fun comments. Congratulations on your blogaversary. Isn't it amazing how much fun it is to make contact with other likeminded, or not, people around the world. Just goes to show that we really are all alike in some way.


Sorry humans, but I have had to reintroduce the word verificatin thing again due to an inordinate amount of crappy spam.
