This one was taken in the same location about 55 years earlier.

Have really enjoyed your "landscape" pics and videos, Ralph.
They bring back the best memories of my uncle's farm in southern
Alberta, back in the '50s and early '60s.

I am the kid looking out the left rear window of the Merc. My dad and little brother are the others. I'm lucky to have a few of the old family photos that include the cars. Kind of fun to do a then and now photo.
In this next one I blended together a "new" shot from 2015 with a vintage black and white from about 1963.

Yes, just today. Not very much but it is coming almost horizontal with a high wind chill, for this time of year. About +15F.
Re calendars, I spent some time on the Vistaprint page last night trying out calendar designs. Looks like at least $13 per calendar to me before shipping costs (which I have not checked yet). https://www.vistaprint.ca/studio/cal...15182467&GNF=1
