Waiting for the rain

It has been a few dry weeks here in central Alberta.

Last night I was awakened by the sound of thunder. A few minutes later rain could be heard pattering on the rooftop. It didn’t last long as the streets in our neighborhood were dry this morning and the skies were clear.

June in central Albrerta is usually the wettest month of the year followed by July. I have many fond memories of going flyfishing and being witness to great hatches of mayflies on overcast days on slow moving foothills streams. The middle of June for me has always meant grey, wet and overcast days.

In the meantime things here are green but not the lush green that we usually see. Grasses are a mix of last years dead and dry with a sprinkling of new growth.

I’ve taken the new infrared camera out a few times but have yet to photograph anything that I want to keep. That should change in a few days or weeks.

In the mean time the mountain parks are forecasting rain and gray skies by Tuesday and Wednesday and I think that it’s about time to try a few black and whites out there.

Cya then and happy shooting,
