This image of a house southeast of Blaine Lake appears in Chris Attrell's book Forgotten Saskatchewan. It was shot with a tea light placed in the attic, "creating a hauntingly beautiful ambience," the books reads (photo courtesy of Chris Attrell)
"Given the chance to vacation in Hawaii or cruise Saskatchewan backroads, I would still choose cruising Saskatchewan."
Chris Attrell has spent the last 16 years exploring and capturing the unrecognized pieces of Saskatchewan beauty.
His collection of photographs of abandoned farmhouses, churches, grain elevators and vehicles come together in his new booked called Forgotten Saskatchewan. It was published this past August.
The book is meant as a glimpse into traditional lifestyles Attrell learned about while exploring the province.
