Happy Planet Earth Day!

I went back at least 8 years and collected a few beauty shots from our days in Fernie. This truly is a magical place, in all seasons. Happy Earth Day!

Birds Are Back In Town

With all the birds coming back to the area, this image really stood out to me from Instagram…plus, this is a really cool shot.

Fernie Banner Project Call For Entry

2015 Fernie Banner Project Launch Day

“Banner Project 2018

For over the past decade, Elk Valley artists have added their own air to Fernie’s streets offering works of art for the 39 banners that line Highway 3 and downtown. Now, in its 14th year, we are calling out to the artists that call the Elk Valley home to once again to contribute to Fernie’s annual Banner Project. We are thrilled to again highlight various artistic mediums from artists of all ages!

What are the adjudicators looking for? Bold colours, striking imagery that stands out from a distance, variation in themes and artistic disciplines and it has to be eyecatching to the street-level observer. What kind of mediums will be accepted? Submissions of paintings, quilts, stained glass, sculpture, pottery and photography are welcome.”

For more information, check out The Arts Station’s website.

Submissions are due Tuesday, April 3rd at 2pm, so, you have time to get organized!

Fernie On Instagram : Birds

Last week I went birding with Nature Bob! I’d been hearing about this “famous” nature/birding guy since arriving in Fernie, but I never had the chance to meet him. Our paths finally crossed and he showed me some great feeders around town. The great part is that he knows *everyone* so rather than awkwardly taking photos over people’s fences, I was invited right in to get as close as I wanted. 🙌🙌 Thank you Nature Bob! Here is a Mountain Chickadee from our outing. _________________________________________ #your_best_birds #nuts_about_birds #bestbirdshots #bb_of_ig #kings_birds #bird_brilliance #eye_spy_birds #bns_birds #feather_perfection #birds_adored  #planetbirds #thebirdingsquad #birds_illife #sassy_birds #birds_captures #birdfreaks #nature_worldwide_birds  #nature_brilliance #nature_perfection #nature_sultans  #exclusive_wildlife #naturesbestphotomagazine  #eye_for_earth #IGS_CAN #NikonCA #sharecangeo #ferniestoke #kootrocks #fernie #mountainchickadee
