Horse in pasture with sagebrush, Val Marie PFRA Community Pasture

I spent several hours photographing a group on horses near the Val Marie PFRA community pasture headquarters. This horse decided to run through a field of sagebrush to catch up with his buddies. Val Marie PFRA is the largest community pasture in Saskatchewan, containing over 41,256 hectares (101,946 acres) of magnificent native prairie. Frenchman River flows through the pasture, with rugged valley slopes adding to it’s photographic appeal. Together with the adjacent Beaver Valley PFRA pasture, there are over 200,000 acres (80,000 hectares) of un-interrupted native prairie. Something that even the nearby Grasslands National Park can not match. Return to the Saskatchewan photo...

Snow-covered hills in Frenchman River Valley – West Block of Grasslands National Park.

Friends told me that they got a “lot of snow” in Val Marie so I went south and spent a weekend photographing in the park. It does not looks much, but for this (very dry) part of Saskatchewan, any moisture is received with joy. Back to the Grasslands National Park photo...

Northern Lights over Highway 4, Saskatchewan Landing Provincial Park

Northern lights (Aurora Borealis) over Highway #4 at Saskatchewan Landing Provincial Park. Photograph one cold November evening around 2 am. I set my camera to ISO 1600 and exposed the scene for 30 seconds. The charged particles of the aurora were constantly moving and long exposure captured the dense curtain of light across the sky. Return to the Saskatchewan photo gallery....
