Most Loved Photos 2013—Bob Ferguson
This photo, taken by Bob Ferguson in Peterson, SK, was a huge hit! Rarely do we see both a flax field and a canola field in full bloom. The elevator nestled in the hillside was a distinctively Saskatchewan bonus. It caused many people to reminisce with us and share their fond Saskatchewan memories.

his photo of a gentleman standing on a Saskatchewan railway in Estevan in 1947 was having a huge impact online from various sources. We were able to connect the photos to an old story about this snowstorm and it really struck a chord with people enduring a very very long winter in 2013. Our post read: "The story behind the photo. It will make you feel better about the amount of snow we have had this winter. I promise. http://ow.ly/jnpDB"

Early in 2013 we asked our online friends for photos of Saskatchewan elevators. It is both heartwarming and heartbreaking to see so many beautiful photos of elevators only to realize that there are so few left standing guard over our province.

"Slanty Shanty" was what you called it. We came across this cool leaning building on our way to Saskatoon and couldn't resist snapping a photo. Looks like something from Dr. Seuss! We especially enjoyed the funny captions that the photo solicited from our online followers.

Our favourite comment on this photo by Prairie Pixel Photography and Design in May was from Gwenyth Nickel: "When I was a girl we used to pick our skirts full of crocuses that grew in the ditches."

Waskesiu River was all that Bob needed to say about this striking winter photo. It is interesting to note that when reviewing the popularity of images sent to us online this year, people find equal beauty in both winter and summer in Saskatchewan.

Ian McGregor has been a great friend this year sharing his wonderful landscapes and some great Saskatchewan finds. Bearing the cold in the wee hours of the morning, he captures more than a frosty image, but also the secret spirit of place.
Our focus at the magazine is to engage with a loyal community of people with the best presentation of Saskatchewan. For years this was mainly accomplished with the print version of our flagship publication, Prairies North. In recent years, we have expanded to include newsletters, our website, digital versions of the magazine, and social media in order to provide more avenues for conversation. We are even exploring video and audio to bring you more of what you love.
There is still so much of our province to share. Throughout the past year, people from all over Saskatchewan (and even some visitors just passing through) sent us their wonderful reflections both in photography and in online messages, comments and posts on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, via feedback on our eNewsletter and comments on articles on our website.
From the many conversations we have found a treasure of people willing to share their Saskatchewan humour, insight and photographs. We can only hope for more of the same on the road ahead. We sincerely appreciate the ongoing support from subscribers and advertisers who believe in what we do for Saskatchewan and participate in our community.
This photo gallery is meant as a great big THANK YOU for your participation with us this year. And as this group of photos clearly demonstrates, there is still more to tell about our province, its people, its landscapes, and our place in the world. Enjoy!
