The Weekend Picture Post

Time for a weekend posting of lovely photos.....

For Sky Watch we had a wonderful sunset the other night.

For Weekend Reflections, the clouds reflecting at Island View Beach.

A few Black and Whites for the Weekend in Black and White.  Out at Island View Beach again.

For Floral Friday a yellow rose and for Pink Saturday a very nice pinky rose.

Another pale pink rose.

A few more Black and Whites for the Weekend in Black and White.  Taken on top of Mount Tolmie.

Same picture as above but with a pinky filter on it.

We went to the Saanich Fair and saw all the horses.

This picture below looks so funny, looks like he is going sideways.

Many horses for Saturday's Critters.

Hope your weekend is wonderful and hope you come back again.  I am starting up my Blog here at Island Rambles again so will be on more and also started up my YouTube Island Rambles site again. Please go and check it out.  Cheers, Nora at Island Rambles.

  14. Hi Nora ... all so very lovely.... your skies are amazing. I kept staring at that sidewise horse, wanting it to straighten up ... or afraid it would fall Over! I’m going back to view your videos... was afraid I’d forget to comment if I didn’t do it now. You are so great at chronicling the beauty of the wonderful area where you live.
