land of living skies.

so that very well be tourism saskatchewan's catchy slogan,
{manitoba really dropped the ball on that one.
how did they score such a sweet slogan
and we got stuck with friendly manitoba?!?!}
but manitoba skies can be quite animated as well.

i don't have a lot of complimentary things to say
about the unbelievably flat prairies,
but i will say that the lack of obstruction
{ie. mountains or any sort of elevation at all}
allows for some pretty magnificent sunrises, sunsets,
and mid-afternoon cloud spectacles.

i left the elementary school at 1:00 pm today
and was just blown away by these living skies:hope you all had a lovely thursday. almost the weekend!!!

  10. Amazing skies! I've always lived in wooded areas in the Northeast of the US. However, one of my best friends from college lived in Nebraska (a prairie state) and when I visited her, it felt so cool to see so far in the distance and the skies were stunningly beautiful!Lovely photos!
