Autumn in all its glory, has arrived in Edmonton. The colors may have peaked a week earlier but here is some of the beauty from the first weekend of October.
The Saturday (October 1st) was gloomy, cool and wet but the wetness brought out the color saturation and contrast in the river valley:

Yes, what a difference a day can make – weather wise in Edmonton. The temperature swings in Edmonton can be especially dramatic. Yesterday, Saturday January 9th was cold. Even though the sun came out int he afternoon the -18C temperature and a bit of wind made me want to stay inside. I did venture out for a little while to clear snow off of my sidewalks but within 20 minutes my fingers were frozen, numb and my ski gloves were not helping.
Today however the temperature swung up to near freezing and with the sun out it was very pleasant. It enticed me to go out for a nice photo hike in the river valley. I was out for an hour in a light with jacket with light gloves and was actually too warm and had to take my toque off to moderate my temperature (love when that happens).
Anyway here are a few images of the beautiful North Saskatchewan river valley in central Edmonton:
