This was the sunrise on this past Sunday morning. We were about to head
out for church when I looked out the window and saw a brilliant red sun peaking
through the clouds. We had a fresh snowfall in the night and it was
a pretty morning out.
All is quiet on the road. The plow and salt truck had gone up the road
and the salt was starting to melt the snow. The old school house
on the right sits quietly in the early light.
The clouds are backlit by the sun as it rises over this farm
and the corn stubble in the fields.
An old barn with fresh snow on the roof.
An old farm homestead on the hill.
A large vertical sundog lights up the sky ahead. I have seen a lot
of sundogs in my life but only one other like this one and that
was in Fort McMurray this past October. Usually they are small
and closer to the sun.
Another view behind a row of trees.
Another old farm house ~ on our way home from church.
The old school house again. My hubby went to school here until
grade 9. There are two large classroom and the
new piece built on the back houses
a small kitchen and restrooms. There were only out houses when it was a school.
It is now home of the Keswick Ridge Historical Society.
There is also an old country store that has been moved to the site behind
the school. It had a date on the end of 1792. It is being restored
and will be used as a local museum.
I don't always have my camera with me but I needed it to take some
pictures at church that morning. I'm glad I had it along. The pictures
were taken through the not-very-clean car windows as we drove along.
Do you do that too? Good thing my hubby was driving and the roads were
snow covered as he had to drive slower than normal and therefore
I could take pictures without him stopping :-)
It has turned quite cold here for a couple of days and will be -20 celsius
by morning. That's not too bad as it's been -34 C in northern
Alberta and on the prairies for a week now. Brrrrr!
I am enjoying my PEI tulips that give our home a 'touch' of spring.
Thanks for stopping by today.
