Across Canada 2009-2010 The Road

Day 7 – Northbound Saskatchey and Sun.

So I got a late start to the day today but was happy I did. I felt refreshed and back on top of my game after feeling a little down and questioning what the hell I was doing out here yesterday. As I grabbed a Tim Hortons and looked through my map book I decided to head North. I’ve been dodging any sort of “weather” chasing the light so to speak as there has always been good light on the horizons, just not where I’ve been. I discarded this notion and decided to head North regardless. Today, the good weather was chasing me. As I headed out of Swift Current I soon got to a little place named Kyle. On the Northern side of Kyle I found a yard full of random junked cars from the 20s, 30s, 40s etc thrown in amongst some tractors and machinery for good measure. It was cloudy when I got there but all of a sudden after shooting for about 45 minutes the sky broke open and gave me some great light. I shot here for another 45 mins or so.

As I left there I soon got ahead of the sun and back under cloud cover, but as I stopped at each of the 3 or 4 stops I made I was soon met by the awesome late afternoon sunlight again. I got some of the best shots of my trip today. I will try and go through some and post some very soon.

I stopped in Biggar, SK for a burger at Hannigans, the second meal I’ve gone “out” for with the exceptions of the odd coffee here and there. I stocked up on some fruit and veggies this morning in Swift Current too.

So here I am in North Battleford. I found an internet cafe named Crandleberry’s and have about an hour. I’ll be working on some photos until the friend gent kicks me out at closing, then off to find a quiet parking spot for a nap.
