I was part of a downtown photo walk and came across this interesting reflection 365 - day 295

I went to Oak Hammock Marsh today and saw thousands of geese preparing to fly south. While this shot doesn't have any geese, this location is a gathering point on the flyway. 365 - day 298

I was walking along the path in Lagimodiere Gaboury park and came upon this beautiful light as the sun was low on the horizon. 365 - day 333

Freeze-up

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

Ice collecting in the southern basin of Lake Winnipeg on a beautiful early winter day.

Riverwalk

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.

Canopy

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.

The Future

As my 365 project comes to an end, I'm thinking about what's next in terms of a creative endeavor. 365 - day 363

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.

A quiet day at the beach

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

Dunnotar Piers

These temporary piers are built into Lake Winnipeg every summer.

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.

Finding peace

Went looking for some nature this evening after a busy day. It was wonderful to hear the frogs croak and the crickets chirp.
