Scenic Sunday - View from on high.

Calgary cannot claim to be 
the most beautiful city in the world

but looking out from my high-rise office window

with the sunrise illuminating the city, 
the horizon shows the stark outlines 
of the newly-snowed-upon Rockies.

 - some mornings, we are treated to 
an array of pinks and golds, 
and all references to concrete can be forgiven.

Calgary sure does have a stunning backdrop!


  1. You're right, it does have a stunning view and as a gateway to the Rockies it has a wonderful location.
    I don't know if the kite I photographed was a juvenile; it was a cold day so he was fluffed up. He seems to be solitary and there is a pair that roosts in the same area so he may be last year’s offspring.

  2. What a fantastic viewpoint you have. Those mountains are breathtaking.

  3. I was thinking "Wow, Calgary can be gorgeous!" when I looked at the first three pictures, then the last one made me laugh.

  4. At least you get an office with a window lol!


  5. I wish there were mountains out in the distance at my office... Thanks for sharing!

  6. I'd LOVE to have that office view...though being in there for sunrise might not be so good! ;)

    Thanks for sharing!

  7. Thank you for your comments folks. Yes - I love my window and I am very lucky to look out on this lot - puts you right off your work, mind you!

  8. I miss that backdrop. I hope to make is back there someday soon.
    Awesome shots, as always!
