Happy Canada Day to all Canadians around the world!

Happy Birthday Canada ! / Bonne Fête du Canada !

 

Canada Day celebrates the birthday of Canada. On July 1, 1867 Canada became a new federation with its own constitution by signing the Constitution Act - formerly known as the British North America Act. Canada Day is a national statutory holiday celebrated in all provinces and territories.

Photos taken around Pitt Lake BC Canada.

My favorite photography subject is mountain peaks and the special ecosystems that they create. IMHO few places provide such a wealth of stunning beauty and frequent photo opps as the Canadian Rockies, in Alberta and British Columbia.

 

Here we have a view looking northwest at Mount Athabasca (of the famous glacier) and Hilda Peak. Just one example of what one finds along the Icefields Parkway between Banff and Jasper.

 

Thanks for taking a peek at these peaks!

 

Have a wonderful weekend!

English:

The Vermilion Lakes are located just west of Banff in the Canadian Rocky Mountains of Alberta. The three lakes extend at the foot of Mount Norquay in the Bow River Valley and are part of Banff National Park.

You may sense the solitude of the Canadian Arctic in this pristine setting with a weak sun and some reflections..

Alberta's Best Road Trip: The Canadian Rockies - Blue-green lakes, massive glaciers, and snowcapped Rocky Mountains peaks slow the pace on the two-lane ride. There will be a lot of unplanned breaks to check out the stunning landscapes. The photo was taken along the icefield parkway, from Banff to Yoho National park.

It is said, “Canadian contributes the Banff and Jasper National Parks to the world, but keeps the Kananaskis park for themselves”. Kananaskis park is a provincial park, not as famous as Banff and Jasper. But there is comparable Rocky Mountains and lakes. It is a very quiet place, no people around, nice trails to walk around the lakes and mountains, really enjoyed the most at this peaceful and quiet place! The photo was taken on the backyards of the camping sites. The walks were great with awesome views of the lakes from the back of camping sites.

To travel the Icefields Parkway is to experience one of Canada's national treasures and most rewarding destinations. This world-class journey offers access to a vast wilderness of pristine mountain lakes, ancient glaciers and broad sweeping valleys. The top of the Rockies Mountains were covered with the snow, the hill of the mountains were pine trees, some part of the mountain was bare, showing “mountain” color. The photo was taken at a stop from Banff heading to Yoho national park.

Happy belated Canada Day, from the 2010 archives, from the Lake O'Hara hike in the Rockies. Long rant about covid regulations in Canada and Mexico below:

 

During my recent trip in Mexico, one hotel I stayed in offered Canadian TV channels, and I watched it one morning. It was an eye opener. In mid-June 2021 they were discussing the possibility of opening the border between..... Ontario and Quebec!!! I know they closed the international border but between provinces?? . I never thought I would say these words, but I'm glad I wasn't living in Canada during the pandemic. Oh, I heard Australia was even worse, the rules in Mexico are also so random, the police stop you in the middle of nowhere to spray hour hands with sanitizer and sometimes you have to go through a spray of disinfectant and wipe your shoes in it, ......yes that would prevent anyone from getting sick if I had the virus and they licked my hair, my shoes or my shirt. Most archeological sites and even some outdoor roadside viewpoints are either completely or partially closed and barricaded, yet indoor dining is allowed and public transport is packed to capacity, I guess the virus only spreads in breezy outdoor settings in Mexico.

Athabasca Falls is a waterfall on the upper Athabasca River, approximately 30 kilometres south of the townsite of Jasper, Alberta. End of September, the river level was lower than it would be in the spring. The turquoise waters of the Athabasca River simply sparkle in the sunlight, especially downstream through the short canyon. The photo was taken just involving a bit of river on the right side, focusing on the rocky mountain…

Taken Longham Lakes, Ferndown, Dorset

These Canada Geese were headed North or Spring Bound. Caught them just leaving the waters of the river and flying overhead - got the bead on them!

Happy Mono Monday!

Canada geese use both body language and honking sounds to communicate with each other. Ten different sounds have been identified.

  

Since the adults are large and able to defend themselves, they don't have many natural enemies. The goslings are another story. Snapping turtles, owls, and hawks find the goslings make for good eating. Raccoons and bears will hunt for nests and make a meal of unhatched eggs.

  

These geese mate for life and are very devoted to each other. If one is injured the other will stay by its side, even if the flock flies to another destination. It's not known for certain if when a goose loses his mate he picks another mate.

  

Because of the large population of geese they will sometimes invade public places such as parks and golf courses to find food and shelter.

Canadian Goose at the Kankakee River in Kankakee Illinois.

A beautiful stroll around St. Anne's Canyon, outside Quebec City...

These are among my favourite birds, inquisitive, interesting and so expressive, they are such a joy to photograph and watch in the north! Only the smartest birds can survive in such conditions, and the Canada Jay is certainly among the most intelligent.

GETTY IMAGES CONTRIBUTOR SELECTED ON DECEMBER, 2014.

And what better than a Canada Warbler? Well I suppose a Beaver or a Moose as well, but those are all winter photos and we are in summer!

The Canadian Rockies mountain range spans the provinces of British Columbia and Alberta. With jagged, ice-capped peaks, including towering Mt. Robson, it's a region of alpine lakes, diverse wildlife and outdoor recreation sites. Yoho National Park is home to the massive Takakkaw Falls. Other national parks are Jasper, with the famously accessible Athabasca Glacier, and Banff, site of glacier-fed Lake Louise.

On Explore😃

In der Natur geht es derzeit drunter und drüber.. ein Frühblüher jagt den nächsten und die Tiere haben auch Nachwuchs.. schade, dass man dieses Jahr ziemlich eingeschränkt ist.. aber man kann das beste draus machen.

Dieses junge Kanadagans Küken liess sich nicht beirren und gönnte sich einen leckeren Snack zum Abend..

 

Bleibt gesund!
