I have been an amateur photographer for most of my life, and have taken classes both in high school and at the college level. After emigrating to Canada as a child,I grew up in British Columbia, Canada, but moved to northern Alberta 10 years ago. It took me several years to get used to the change in geography and ultimately to embrace the sublime harmony of the Peace Country. Since then I have been on a mission to share this part of the world with whomever cares to see. I think that Google Earth, and Panoramio are a wonderful way for those of us who can not travel the earth ourselves to see the beauty of it anyway. I have a daughter on Panoramio here, http://www.panoramio.com/user/3101516 , and my father is also on here, http://www.panoramio.com/user/3012652 . Besides the local landscape I have interest in capturing the feline form, flowers and old vehicles. I also have a growing collection of murals from local artists. By learning, I am a Horticulturist, but these days I work in a Sawmill, and I enjoy my work very much. Thanks for visiting and I hope you enjoy my take on the Peace Country of northern Alberta, Canada. Vicki

Vicki Atkins's conversations

This was actually a Ukrainian Catholic tserkva. My grandfather, Wasyl Kowal attended this church with his ancestors before he came to the United States in the early 1900s. Grampa Kowal was a Boyko, a very small minority within the Ukrainain race, and this church is classical three-domed Boyko sacred architecture.

Interestingly, the landscape here is very similar to the Ossippe and White Mountains in New Hampshire USA. I had been drawn to those mountain when I was only a little girl and my parents took us up there to vacation. Now my husband and I have a cabin up there.
