Wednesday Walk - Fort Taber

Let me start this weeks post with a big thank to everyone who joins the Wednesday Walk, I so enjoy visiting everyone's post and seeing walks from all around the world.

Seeing new people join each week is wonderful and last week I think we hit an all time high with over 70 Wednesday Walk posts :)

This post if for Wednesday walk challenge And Make me Smile Collaboration challenge, initially our collaboration was once a month but due to the popularity of it we have decided to make the collab a weekly thing :)

Wednesday Walk is a challenge started by me, the idea is to get out for a short walk and get some shots of what you can see within a short distance of your home office or wherever you start. And this is my entry for this week, but first, let me explain the challenge.

This is my post for the Wednesday Walk challenge hosted by myself, let me first explain the guidelines

Try and get out once a week for a short walk, can be from your office, home or anywhere really and walk for a few blocks or a few minutes looking for things to get shots of.

Your walk does not have to be on a Wednesday I just ask if possible to share your walk photos on a Wednesday.

Try and get a few shots not just one

Add a bit of a write up about where you walked

You can look for anything in general or decide on one subject you want to get shots off.

Make a point of looking around and up and see what you can find to get shots of that otherwise you may miss

Do a post with the shots you get on a Wednesday and tag it with #wednesdaywalk, also if you happen to join, please leave a link to your post in a comment on this post and I will try and visit them all, especially if its not one of the first 5 tags or I may miss seeing it .

Following me and re-Hiving the post so more see it would be appreciated but isn't a rule just a suggestion.

I am not strict on these rules and hence why they are called guidelines and not rules

I will try and visit, and upvote all who take part in the Wednesday Walk.

Make me Smile Collaboration

As I mentioned above Wednesday Walk is collaborating with the [Make Me Smile] hosted by @elizacheng,

Here are the rules for her challenge

Your post can be writing, singing, video, poem,drawing, photography etc.... the most important part is your post Make me" smile, Remember, the ME is whoever read/view/listen to your post and this includes YOURSELF.
b. Your content must be ORIGINAL CONTENT
c. Please include at least 50 Words in your post

Before I start with my photos for this week, I want to thank everyone for joining the Wednesday Walk, I think last week was a new record for the number of Wednesday Walk posts, there was over 70 of them

Fort Taber Park

For this weeks post I am sharing a recent walk around Fort Taber Park before and during the sunrise, it was a chilly morning and I did more walking to keep warm, but did stop and take a few photos, starting as I often do when I visit there taking a walk along the beach, this first shot is looking along the beach towards East beach, it was fairly dark and hence the need for a 38 Second exposure.

After the beach I took a look around the ark following these paths, one side of the blue line is marked for walkers and the other side for cyclist

And this took me around Fort Rodman.
this next shot goes to show do not always expect the colors in the sky to be in the direction the sun is rising, at the time I took this shot this is looking the opposite direction from the rising sun and yet there were more colors in the sky this way which I thought looked cool behind the fort.

And on the walkway again nice subtle colors in the sky

Then I walked back along the beach walking away to get the steps in I wanted, but stopped to look back along the beach for this next shot

And once I had my step count in,I had enough of the cold wind on my face and took this path heading back to the car park, and saw the reflection of the tree inthe puddle and had to stop for one last shot

Beautiful photos, JJ, the blue looks great and the second shot is my favourite today - the path and the clouds lead nicely to the orange spot where the sun is rising 😍

!BEER and !WINE - both make a nice dinner with !PIZZA :)

It’s funny the second shot seems to be the most popular and it’s one I wasn’t sure about lol 😂

!PIZZA and !BEER - sounds like a nice dinner :)

Yeah, it's the colours and the leading lines, at least to me. There's almost all blue in blue and one orange spot to where the clouds and the path lead and that's great 😃

!PIZZA and !BEER - sounds like a nice dinner :)

Thanks I am starting to appreciate that one better now

!PIZZA and !BEER - sounds like a nice dinner :)

Cool - it's better when you like your own photos 😉 lol

Cheers and !BEER

That second shot is awesome. All of them are beautiful, but that one really speaks to me. I hope you and your family have a blessed and relaxing holiday weekend. Happy Thanksgiving!

Thanks for your feedback, always good to know what people like, and its funny as I had mixed feelings myself about that shot, so glad I kept it int he post ;)

I think it turned out great!

Thanks again
Have a great day

Very very good work, difficult to find appropriate words for your photography ❤️
Very dramatic colors and love the sky effects. Great work my dear friend @tattoodjay.
God bless you dear.

I'm glad to hear that more hivers joining the Wednesday walk and Congrats @tattoodjay :) Some of my friends are very excited about the Wednesday walk, I just realized that I haven't been walking on Wednesdays. Would it be possible for me to post about my Wednesday walk on another day such as Thursday or Friday?

Stunning pictures, as always :)

It is great seeing it grow :)

and yes thats fine to share on another day

Love this photo!


Fort Taber is a great place to walk, especially when it's so deserted. I think this walk was also an excellent image hunt. You managed some great shots, I really like the dominant blue!
Thanks for the favorable draw for me, I'm not lucky in the lottery and my luck was probably brought to me by whoever made the draw!

Most welcome for the hive I like to give a little back each week it is mostly random 🙂

You may have noticed I to love the blues
I love walking in this park early morning when it is quiet

Noticed. It's a special color. I forgot to say which is my favorite. Fourth!
I took a walk downtown.
A short walk under a blazing sun

Thank you very much for the Hive!! Love the photos here @tattoodjay! They are truly breathtaking!!

Most welcome and thanks

After the last couple of days I went mono and moody so needed more color today

Sounds like a nice walk on a chilly morning, the pictures are looking amazing especially with the sunrise colors . Nothing better than starting your day with a brisk walk, thank you for sharing and keep enjoying your week, Happy Thanksgiving ahead :}

Thank you
Most of my walks gir the next few months till it warms up in spring will be in the mall to cold for my early morning walks for me

Happy thanksgiving 🦃

The scenery looks marvelous @tattoodjay
I won't take a walk but run over there for sure. 😁

Thanks a lot for the support, much appreciated. I enjoy joining the Wednesday Walk lately. :)

Great glad you are enjoying it

The idea is very original and the photos are excellent and creative.

I recently took a fortnight vacation and did a lot of walking tours that I can publish in the Argentine Patagonia and in Buenos Aires.

Is it advisable to wait until next Wednesday or can I publish them already?

It wouldn't be a bad idea to publish an introductory post to the Community. In fact I already publish in other similar communities.

Regards @tattoodjay.

I ask that you only post once a week in the Wednesday walk I visit every post and it would be too much to keep up I’d people die multiple posts each week

It's always nice to look at your WednesdayWalk photos, @tattoodjay.

Thanks kindly your support is appreciated

Have a great day

I love your last shot! It's funny puddles always make me stop and check if I can see an interesting reflection in it - LOL

Thanks so much, and I do love reflections so also am always looking for them :)
