I counted 390 stairs down (and yes I walked up too) to the ocean just off the UBC campus. 365 - Day 336

Prince George

After my talk, I went back to my hotel just in time to catch the sunset and a shot of the city. 365 - day 338


Found these lovely lines of bright sunlight streaming through a fence as I stepped out of the house to take my daily photo. I took a bunch of others, but this was a clear winner. 365 - day 339


Ice forming on Lake Winnipeg. The round circles are ice that's formed on top of rocks. 365 - day 340

North Winds

This small point was found in the southern basin of Lake Winnipeg where the wind had blown some of the newsly formed ice into some very interesting piles.

All washed up

We had this wonderful fog this morning as I went out to take my photo. 365 - day 347

Structure vs chaos

Caught this shot of the river flowing quite quickly under the newly formed ice. Wish I could have gotten closer.


A pathway at Assiniboine Park with a canopy of elms. 365 - day 354

A fresh blanket

We had our first big dump of snow this week and the winds have been calm so it's still on the trees.

This is new!

I had a few moments between events today and stopped by St. Vital Park and found this modern looking warming hut next to the ice rink. Day 355

Off Kilter

Despite the holidays being over, I found this ornament in the forest and shooting it at an angle just seemed to make the most sense.


Week 2 photo challenge. It was cold today (-25C) so I made bubbles as the foreground for my landscape.

Fresh Tracks

Was up on the mountain early this morning enjoying the freshly groomed runs

Blanketed by the clouds

Saw these shadows on the mountain and had to stop and capture them.

A glimpse

The clouds broke to give brief glimpses of the mountains behind.

A bridge over troubled waters

Reflection landscape for 52 week challenge week 11

Trading zone

For week 12 of the dogwood52 challenge, the theme was transportation. I chose this shot since it captured two major forms of transportation here in Winnipeg. Both the river which was used for transport for hundreds of years before the city was built and the railway, which opened up transportation across Canada. The location is near the junction of two rivers.

Springing up

A fallen sheet of ice on the Seine River

Save me

The weather wasn't great, but I went to the beach anyway. Oddly enough, I was the only one there.

Stairs down to the beach at the UBC campus.

Piling on

There was some smoke in the air tonight, likely from the fires near Fort McMurray, Alberta which is nearly 2000 km from here. Definitely feel for the residents from there who've had all kinds of things piled on.

On the edge

The sky was again beautiful this evening.

Creek at the Ink Pots above Johnston Falls. The hike up was quite busy, but once past the upper falls things got quieter and at the top, there were only a few people who made the trek.
