May flew by just as quickly as the spring blooms came and went! It was a warm and pretty month in Edmonton, more than making up for the long winter that sustained itself well into April. If it weren’t for seasonal allergies, this would probably be my favourite time of year here to photograph (with September’s fall colours, mild weather, and more reasonable sunrise times currently taking the crown). There’s nothing quite like the anticipation of Edmonton’s bustling summer months, with the mercury rising and days lengthening! Take a look back at my May favourites from all around #YEG.
Three months into 2018—can you believe we’re already a quarter through the year? They say that March comes “in like a lion, out like a lamb,” but I can’t say that that expression is reflected in the photos I captured this month. You can still feel that winter chill in the air and see the snow on the ground, despite the days getting longer and the fact that we’ve technically entered spring. Such is life when you live in the northernmost major city in North America, I suppose.
Minor complaints aside, March was still a pretty month to photograph, with the aftermath of fresh snow yielding some of my favourite shots. Here’s your monthly look back at March in #YEG:
January’s blue skies, fresh snow, crisp winter air, and splashes of fog made for some truly exquisite landscapes across the city! Here’s your look back at the first month of 2018 in #YEG, which includes photos from Alberta Avenue’s Deep Freeze Festival, Mill Creek Ravine, MacKinnon Ravine, and Whitemud Ravine.
With the river now frozen over, you can be sure that winter is well on its way! Here’s a look back at this year’s fall freeze as seen from locations in Forest Heights, Capilano, Louise McKinney Park, and central Edmonton on or near the High Level Bridge:
And finally, a couple video clips:
