I thought it would be neat to make threads full of photos of our awesome country, province by province or territory by territory. XD
So, it's amazingly pretty out here in the fall and I've been taking pictures (Mostly for Rhin who asked me what it looks like beyond 'Like Sask but not flat') Well, Alberta is most definitely not flat like Saskatchewan, but it's hard to tell with all this farmland I live around. Several of these pictures are just from rural areas south of Edmonton, and yes it's pretty flat there. We DO have things that break up the landscape though.
First of all, my dad's car last week:
YES THAT'S FROST.
Here's my backyard (I live on an acreage which is why I have no friends)
My front yard:
There are usually cows out here too:
Generic rural stuff:
Okay, now this picture, look VERY closely at that fence down the middle. You might see a freakishly small pony. (You might have to open this in a new window to see closer)
The Farm and Ranch Supply thingy
Where cars go to die
OKAY DO YOU SEE THE TINY PONIES NOW?!
I'm so proud of myself for getting such a pretty cliche shot...
Finally, as promised: THE BUFFALOOOOO. I'm afraid they don't roam as much as they used to. :(
This is a pretty common sight in Alberta of course...
Wow, I got just the right angle to make this pretty (Things would be a lot prettier if they weren't all on the side of a road. :(
Another common sight in Alberta: CONSTRUCTION SEASON
You can't see it from here very well, but that's the North Saskatchewan river valley in Edmonton. I would take a better picture but the sides of the bridge are blocked off for construction.
It was free admission day when I took these, so even though it says 'next left' you might notice the UNHOLY AMOUNT OF CARS ON THE RIGHT.
That's all I have for now, but I might take some more pictures at the University of Alberta today. :D
