Wild Canada

Tanya Grealey snapped this gorgeous shot in early December. “I was out for a drive along a country road and this gal was laying peacefully under a tree,” she says. “I got out of my vehicle and started walking towards this beautiful doe. She just laid there and let me get extremely close. It was incredible!”

Peace on the Prairies

“This photo was taken the day after a beautiful snowfall here, a few weeks ago in Southern Alberta,” writes Kim MacDonald Cameron. “I live close to this abandoned farmhouse, built in 1913, so I frequent this spot often. There was not a breeze to be felt that crisp morning-just a hazy fog, the sleeping shell of the house and silence in the air. The snow underfoot muffled my footsteps as I tried getting just the right shot. It was truly a serene and peaceful experience.”
