Saskatchewan Canada (8) – Highway 11

A weekend trip to Regina gave me the opportunity to test drive my new Nikon D500.  Travelling over 110kms per hour on Highway 11, I tried to capture the beauty of the Saskatchewan landscape.

I grew up on this terrain and when I look at these photos, it brought back fond memories of various road trips.  I hope others who grew up on the prairies will have that same feeling.
