A lot has happened in the past half year - not the least of which was moving to a new country home.  I'm now located in the village of Empress - a tiny place in the middle of vast regions of prairie and badlands.

It is a place of endless sky.

Where you're never quite sure where the next road will lead.

A place where you need to stop and really LOOK, or the subtle beauty will pass you by.

And where the ravages of extreme weather and time have left their mark on the landscape.

Pelicans - such an unexpected sight!

In a land of extremes

Where the best chance of survival is to blend into your surroundings.

As a sudden summer storm rolls in at the end of the day.
