The barns in Alberta are quite different than here in Ontario. They are generally smaller and the boards run horizontal as opposed to vertically here in Ontario.
We found this abandoned barn east of Edmonton. With the sun shining on it’s face and the windmill in the background I could just imagine a time when a farm family called this property home.
Well it has been a while since I have posted anything.
A combination of being busy and working on bring some more artistry into my work.
This photo was taken in Alberta on a beautiful August evening.
Be Still and enjoy!
Surrounded by dozens of other scrapped tractors cars and trucks in a forest, this tractor looks like it is trying to power its way out of the grave.
This was taken in August 2016 in Alberta Canada.
In August of 2016 we stopped to get a few shoots of the famous “Dirty Shorts” grain elevator in Tofield Alberta Canada. The word Dirty is still visible on the west side of the elevator but sadly the Shorts have faded quite a bit.
This description can be found on the Roadside America.com website:
The elevator was originally called “Shonts,” a one-house location lived in by the elevator agent. One Halloween some local boys changed the name to “shorts.” Several years later some younger boys were more daring and managed to paint the word “dirty” above the word “shorts.”
I have this information from personal experience! The elevator is owned by a local farmer.

What a fun story to go with great old elevator.
This was taken last August along the Columbia Icefields Parkway in the Canadian Rockies.
One thing that surprised me was how windy it was at this location. The temperature difference between the glacier ice and the surrounding area created a wind that made it hard to keep my hat on!
This past summer I had the pleasure of visiting Spirit Island on Maligne Lake in Jasper National Park – Alberta. Accessible only by boat it is one of the most photographed locations in the Canadian Rockies.
I was lucky enough to be set up for this shot when a deer wandered out to the Island. Click the image to see it bigger.
Pyramid Mountain is just north of Jasper Alberta. We went to explore it early one morning and the elk were walking along the edge of Pyramid Lake.
