Scenic Sunday - Big Weather

I completed several journeys last weekend back and forth to Banff, which is about an hour and a quarter from my hometown -  it's a horrible, boring journey - not much to see! 

The Spring weather was fabulously diverse - half-hour downfalls of wet snowflakes the size of Toonies 
(large two dollar coins), which had all melted and disappeared an hour later.
Brilliant sunshine and snow on the peaks, with rolling shadows.
Sunshine and rain.
Proper rain moving in.

A huge mix, in a huge landscape.


T'was a gorgeous Scenic Sunday.
Have a good one yourself.

  1. Yeah, such a boring drive into the Rockies. Seen one Rocky, seen 'em all. Never a dull moment, you mean!
    I had to laugh at my husband when we travelled by train through the Alps last month. He took 950+ photos in one day, and it's not as if he's never seen a mountain before. "Hello? Sit down, dear, there are mountains a few hours from home." Nope. Didn't work. LOL
