December 2014 Update: Kim may have heard me say “I’m done taking pictures of this field” many many times. In my defence I thought it was true. But soon after I would start thinking about it. I kept wondering what I missed last year.
I will be updating my favourite series (my only series??) soon. I’m adding a few more pictures to “A prairie Field: My View”. I think they fit well but if you look closely you can see some differences.
Below is the original post I did to introduce my up coming post. Soon I will be posting the updated series. :)

It’s a scene like this that makes me wish my camera had a few more pixels. My camera doesn’t do the prairies justice…but I try.
Here is a farm field I’ve been visiting quite often. Kim will be the first to tell you that this field has become a bit of an obsession to me. I keep telling myself I’ve seen all the changes that are ever going to happen but I still keep going back anyway. Many times the field mom looks the same as before, but other times I’ve been surprised.
If I remember correctly this picture was taken about an hour after sunrise. After stopping by the field and taking pictures from my usual angle I decide to find a different subject before the morning light disappeared. For some reason I only traveled a few minutes and stopped again at “my field”. This photo was taken not from the south side, where I usually stop, but from the north looking back onto where I just came from. I’m hoping I will be done take pictures soon and make the time to share “my field” with you :)
Its been ages since I’ve posted anything to this blog. 2014 has been a busy year for Kim & I and things got even crazier during the fall, but crazy in a good way. We managed to make time for a vacation during the last half of October (to visit the Grandparents). At the same time we were also juggling the sale of our little one bedroom condo and buying a three bedroom duplex. Not to mention the field work that sends me “everywhere” with a minutes notice. So blog posting was unfortunately last on the list. (not to mention my main computer was boxed up for almost a month!). So the new place has been organized a bit and work has slowly started to wind down before the holidays (Kim may disagree). I purchased a little flat bed scanner to share one of two pictures I have taken with one of my newest cameras. It might not be newly manufactured but its a camera that has made creating much more fun. So once in a while you might see more of these showing up on the blog. This was taken on our way back from our BC vacation. I was stretching my legs and noticed some clouds that interested me and this is the result:
