This summer, I spent a lot of time looking up.
Before I left for Slave Lake, I’d seen a painting while out for lunch with two of my sisters and my niece. It was hanging there, on a large partition that divides two sections at Van Gogh Grill and Bar. When my niece arrived she remarked that she found it kind of weird because all except about 1/10th of the scene was sky.
That’s what I liked about it. It really caught my eye. I think the painter probably thought the sky was particularly beautiful that day and was inspired.
It also reminded me of the previous two seasons I’d spent in Slave Lake. There’s never a dull moment when it comes to skies there. I have so many pictures of it, you’d think it would get boring. But, it doesn’t. It just keeps changing.
After seeing the painting in Van Gogh’s, I decided to make a point of looking up this season. I wasn’t disappointed.
I know a camera doesn’t do justice to what I actually saw. So, enjoy what I’m about to share by imagining yourself there to witness how spectacular these actually were.
Yet another season in Slave Lake distracted by these beauties. Remember to look up dear readers. You won’t be disappointed.
