Winter Sunrise

Snow Beautiful 1200 WM

~*~

Winter holds its own beauty. And yes, it can be cold.

It was -10C when I stepped out to capture this and many other glorious moments one morning this past week. Thawing was unpleasant, but I was buoyed by the results of half an hour communing with this beautiful winter sunrise.

Thanks for visiting …

Archie Gordon

Archie was a happy Scottish lad. One of seven children who immigrated to northern Alberta with their parents in the early 1920s as part of the Soldiers Settlement Act. His father was a proud member of the Black Watch and had served proudly.

Archie had a keen sense of humour and was a true friend to his sister Alice, my grandmother, who felt his loss deeply.

If you want peace, be peace. This is the best way to honour the memories of those who gave their lives that we might live in peace times.

Thanks for visiting.
