I found this gem just off Highway 16 not too far from Sherwood Park, Alberta. The homesteader that built this home wanted a home with a view and he most certainly got it. I wonder how many years he enjoyed his perfect view not to mention a ready source of water before he moved on?

Canon XSI Sigma DC 55-200mm

    Wonderful find and so nicely taken! Look at all those windows to look out at this marvelous view! Being so close to the river, I have to wonder if it may have gotten too close for comfort during the winter months when the river ran higher! : )

  • Up here Sandy the river would have frozen solid. So it would have made the trek for water shorter. Thank you for your comment. Much appreciated. :>)) Leslie

    They say it’s all about location. I wonder why he moved on. A terrific shot Leslie.

  • Thanks very much Al. I don’t know but with the way the house must have been it must have been a very good reason. The all stone fireplace would have kept me there permanently. :>)) Leslie
