Of Lost Sunsets & Cat Rescues

I'd forgotten this photo was on my card! This incredible sunset (colours not enhanced, btw) was taken on December 21st, the Winter Solstice:

I remembered the sunset when I downloaded today's photos of the newest guest at ICAN, a cat found a few days ago near the Legion in Invermere:

More photos of Legion and other ICAN guests on smugmug, along with information on how to give a forever home to one of these lovely cats! Legion is a very spunky little cat, very curious and very affectionate!

It was two steps forward (two cats - Minou and Barney - were adopted) and one step back (another guest, Legion, moved into the cozy shelter) at ICAN this week. At least we're headed in the right direction!

Merry Christmas, everyone! Here's wishing you and all those you hold dear a peaceful and joyous holiday season!


  1. Beautiful photos Tanya! I love the detail in the cat's eyes. Which camera are you using?

  2. Thanks, Karen! I am using a Canon 7D with a 24-70 2.8L ... plus bounced on-camera 580EXII flash for the cat photo. I'm starting to REALLY LIKE flash, now that I'm not so afraid of it any more!

  3. Thanks Tanya I'm still on the Rebel t1i, I was thinking about the 7D. I love bouncing the flash off the ceiling- it makes such a great effect. Great work.

  4. The 7D is a great step up from the T1i. I'm loving it! It's very different operationally, which was a bit scary at first.
