My trip to Saskatchewan was more about the photography than shooting videos, while I did shoot video everywhere I went, it was short and quick.
On this trip I wanted to capture photos as best as I could l, so far I am happy with the results!!

As I traveled south and then west, the skies were very hazy, you could smell and taste the smoke from the Alberta will fires, which made for some very dramatic skies.

Northen Lights and Abandoned House

This was the only time I saw the auroras during my time in Saskatchewan. I was in Regina and headed out of the town in hopes of time lapsing the milky way, but the skies ended up being a bit too hazy But they were just clear enough to give me a short glimpse of the northern lights!

Canada Geese and Wildfire Skies

As I travelled south and west in Saskatchewan the skies became more hazy and red, making for dramatic skies.  I had stopped to capture photos of an old wooden bridge when I heard the calls of Canada Geese flying overhead.

Lone Abandoned House on a Hill - Dummer, Saskatchewan

Saskatchewan Abandoned Photography

While I was travelling through Saskatchewan back in May, I was on my way to visit the ghost town known as Dummer, located near the southern border of the province.

Off in the distance, close to my destination, I spotted this lone abandoned house in a field.

Since I was on my way to a ghost town, I paid little attention to this house.

I pulled into, what used to be, the ghost town of Dummer to find that it was gone, all of the houses and buildings demolished. This was a huge blow for me as I had driven a significant distance to see Dummer.

Wondering what to do at this point, I turned my car around to go get a photo of the small house I passed a few moments earlier.

This ended up being one of my favourite moments on this 4-day trip, the home was so old that it was no longer accessible by any kind of road or driveway. The only view of it was from a road surrounded by small hills and valleys and a small stream.

The remoteness of this home and the peaceful surroundings were exactly what I came here for, so after I captured my photos, I hung around for a while to enjoy the location before getting back on the road and heading to Regina, where I would spend the night in a Wal-Mart parking lot!
