Arrival

 

Nomads of the sky
Back to fish the restless weir
Winter fades away


Week 05 - ArrivalWeek 05 - Arrival

Arrival is an image about the first arrival of the Pelicans to Saskatchewan, which to most of us here see as a sign that spring finally has arrived.  I made this a few years ago when I was lucky enough to be in the right place as they came in for their first landing - passing right over me to touch down.  To me, this photograph is about the joy we feel when we see the return of old acquaintances who we associate with better times such as summer.  There is level of comfort in knowing that some things remain the same regardless of all the changes around us.
