Sunrise from my deck...
Clarenville, Newfoundland. My house and deck directly overlook the ocean (Random Sound). We hear the waves lapping with the doors open (protected, like a pond if the wind isn’t blowing). Random Island in the distance.

These lakes raised me & will forever feel like home. My favourite #RuralLandscapes.  Bell Lake in Killarney, ON!

And now the #sunrise #locumlife #rural

Another beautiful sunset in Rural Medicine Alliston, Ontario

Hopedale- one of my favourite #RuralLandscapes @SRPCanada  #SRPC_Photos

Upper Arrow Lake near Nakusp (and not far from Nelson BC)

This is a photo of Sioux Lookout, northwestern ONT. My summer home for 4 years of locuming ! Rural med at its best! Great colleagues for work and play! This is a photo from the top of Sioux mountain, a great hike that leads to a beautiful view! So much to love about rural medicine! (this was 1 of my earliest experiences with new friends in sioux in summer 2016 after completing residency in PEI)! Society of Rural Physicians of Canada (SRPC) #SRPC_Photos

#StrathconaProvincialPark is the oldest provincial park in BC. I am so thankful this is the park my #FamilyMedicine residency (Van Island - Strathcona) is named after, and this is in my backyard #RuralMed

(I was the race doctor for the Antarctic Marathon) We cruised around before and after - penguins, seals, whales, albatross. But the ice bergs were my unexpected favourite.

Peace River at golden hour. It’s moments like these that made my rural rotation such a wonderful experience. #SRPC_Photos @the_srpc

When a contest calls for “rural landscapes” and you wait until the last minute to post because how am I ever supposed to choose one rural landscape photo?? This was a magical experience at Fish Lake, YT about 2am in February 2020 @the_srpc #srpc_photos #aurora #auroraborealis #northernlights #exploreyukon

Gorgeous view from my afternoon run in Marathon.

One of my favourite views over Lake Muskoka on the huckleberry rock trail!🌿☀️ #lakemuskoka #huckleberrytrail #milfordbayrockcut #srpc_photos #rurallife #ruralmed #rurallandscapes

Thankful every day despite the challenges.

This is my August submission.
