Golden Light, By Kim Blair

We live in an older neighbourhood in Edmonton, called the 'Highlands' where almost every street is lined with a spectacular colonnade of mature elm trees that are pruned and manicured by the city, which only makes sense when you consider they are heritage trees.  This year marks the 100th anniversary of the Highlands neighbourhood, and many of these trees must be close to that age... give or take a few years.

I thought I would share a couple of photos I snapped of the brilliant yellow elm leaves glowing in the afternoon light, set against a clear blue sky.  The golden canopy they create over the street puts a whole new meaning to the term "Golden Arches!"
