On July 7th members of the Moose Jaw Camera Club ventured out for a sunset shoot of the Avonlea Badlands. Club member Cathy Geisler spends a good part of the summer working with the Avonlea Heritage Museum.
This year the museum is organizing more guided tours around the local area. Cathy contacted the club and shared the tour schedule. July 7th was a great day to venture out. The rain gods had played hide and seek all day in the Moose Jaw area but by the time we arrived in Avonlea for the tour with Cathy the weather was cooperating and the sun was shining brightly.
A short drive brought us to the designated parking spot and we walked toward our final destination.
Soon the group spread out to explore the vistas and focal points.
Rob gets into position…
Look what he found!
Oh those Hoodoos!
Terry found a great place in the golden light!
Tami and Colin found another glorious spot to capture the view.
Lynn was soon mesmerized by the same view!
Our voices stirred up the wild life…
Who needs to drive to Drumheller when we have these beauties on our doorstep?
Terry found another great focal point!
Vaughn was waiting for the perfect golden moment!
Another popular spot…Murray, Cathy and Terry get into position.
…waiting for the sun to set!
And we didn’t have to wait long!
Thank you Cathy, for bringing this great opportunity to our attention! We hope to return for another adventure soon.
