Pelican on the Bow River

We had our first Pelican sighting of the year today. These American White Pelicans arrive in Calgary in late April, hang out on the Bow River all summer, and then take off to Florida before it gets too cold... Sounds like a good plan to me!It was a pretty ugly day today with plenty of snow and rain, but we both had the day off and took advantage of it anyway. We went for a really nice walk along the river and saw plenty of birds including ducks, geese, and a Hawk soaring high above.

Horizons

I stopped to take some pictures of a very beautiful sunrise on my way to work this morning, and then this evening a Chinook blew through so I went out to shoot the Calgary skyline at sunset! I've been wanting to get both of these shots for quite awhile but the timing is difficult. The days are so short here in winter and then so long in the summer that it seems like I'm never in the right place at the right time. Everything just fell into place today though...
