Disaster in Alberta

Hello everyone, I live in the province of Alberta, Canada in the city of Edmonton. Alberta is quite a big province. Southern Alberta has been stricken with flooding. In Calgary almost 100,000 people have been ordered to evacuate their homes and , most of the downtown area is under water. There are many more communities that are flooding. I will post a link so you can see what is happening. Here is the link:  or

There are several videos in this link. I will also post a photo to give you an idea of what is happening.

Iris from my Garden

Hello everyone, it’s been a while since I posted a photo here on my blog. My Irises are blooming and they are so beautiful, I thought I would show you an image of my Grey/Blue Iris, some may say it is purple but it is really not. I have played with this image and I thought I would also give you a couple of variations of the same image. I did an image without filters and 2 with filters. Let me know how each one is in your opinion.

Today we got a emergency warning that a tornado is in the area and may hit our city (I hope not, been there done that). So I thought I would pop into the garden and get some images of the Iris. So the light is a little dull but the main thing there is not heavy shadow contrast. I like soft light. Anyway here are the images.

                Thank you everyone and be safe out there, mother
