While on a trip through the canadian prairies recently, I spotted this farmstead along hwy 13 between Weyburn and Assiniboia in Saskatchewan. Exploring old homesteads, particularly in the fall on the prairies is one of my favourite pastimes and has been for a long while. Without accurate information on the site, one’s imagination can get out of control in short order!

    You must have been in Heaven! Super shot and great perspective. Love the fence coming out of the left corner. Don’t you just wonder what it was like when it was filled with activity and laughter?

  • Thanks Lee-Anne ………yes it was enjoyable for sure to see some new country and photo subjects !!!!
