Some may call this pretty, but I don’t. While the sunset photo looks lovely, you have to realize that’s taken behind a snowbank. A HUGE snowbank. These photos were taken on Friday by our photographer/newsreporter here in Outlook, Derek Ruttle. They are from a small village not far from Outlook, called Conquest (I went to elementary and junior high school there). The top one was the visibility on Thursday afternoon as we had massive wind and snow. Next is the road closure outside Conquest. Sunset snowbank. The snow blew so hard it piled up on anything that got in the way. People had to dig paths down streets in some cases just to get around. And on highway 45, snow was piled up on the sides of the highway so high, they dwarfed vehicles like SUVs and heavy duty pickup trucks.
Last one for the day, featuring the sky and the sun as it gets ready to set. I almost didn’t take these photos. I was just going to leave them and try again another day. As it turned out, the lighting was really good, and the colours came out really nice.
