Oak and Birch Trees

Oak And Birch

I took this photo a couple of years ago.  I like it because I really appreciate trees.  I enjoy looking at how they grown amongst each other.  The Oak tree is a dark bark whereas the birch tree is white with sections of striped black.  As we know trees are important for keeping erosion at bay.  Plus, we also know that carbon dioxide is absorbed by the tree and produce oxygen for our benefit to breathe and the world too.  I like the angle that these trees have taken in an effort to continue to grow.  This photo was taken at Assiniboine Forest in Winnipeg.

Golden Eagle Head

I took this photo of the Golden Eagle near Lake Winnipeg.  I also saw and took photos of Bald Eagles.  Their range of living is 200 km2 (77 sq mi) based on what Wikipedia says.  This is quite a big territory but not if you are a flying eagle that soars across the skies with ease.  They have a partial migration.  If they are further north, they usually migrate when living at a latitude of 60 degrees north and shorter migrations if they are at the 50 degree latitude.  If you take the location of Gimli, Manitoba they are at 50.6667° N, 97.0500° W.  And if you are at Winnipeg, Manitoba the near center of Canada it is 49.8994° N, 97.1392° W.   These beautiful yet hardy birds will only do a partial migration during the cold months of winter.

Profile Face in Tree

I took this photo of the inside of a Californian Redwood tree and I found it remarkable to see the profile of a face.  It is a strong side view of a face with a forehead, an eye, nose and chin going down into a neck.  Can you see the image in the wood?

It is gnarled and old yet somehow very strong as a male figure.  I enjoy the browns, greens and other hues found in the wood. As well, I think the moss near the bottom of the face is an incredible green neon shade which is amazing to me because it naturally occurs in nature.

Sparkling Water and Goose

I could not believe how gorgeous the water turned out around this goose.  The white goose is encircled with huge diamond–shaped sparkling lights.  I love the way the water seems to fold itself over delicately moving as the goose glides along the water.  I also love the multi-pointed sparks of light.  This photo was taken in Freeport, Bahamas in The Garden of the Groves on the Grand Bahamas Island.

“Look Ma, I can fly!”

This is an image of a pelican flying near a dock on Lake Winnipeg.  I like the way he or she delicately takes off from the rocks to fly and seems to be saying “Look Ma, I can fly!”  The other pelican is oblivious and looks like he or she is saying, “Boy, I don’t care.  Stop showing off my brother/sister (pick one).  We can all do that!  Who really cares!  I am going to ignore you.”

Their large beak and large throat pouch is used for catching fish and not carrying babies as fairy tales would have us believe.  Too bad!  They range in many areas and fossil evidence show that they date back to 30 million years ago.  They are gregarious birds who hunt cooperatively and breed colonially.  Pelicans are found on inland lakes and costal waters.

According to Wikipedia, “They have suffered from habitat destruction, disturbance and environmental pollution, and three species are of conservation concern. They also have a long history of cultural significance in mythology, and in Christian and heraldic iconography.”

En Formation

I am presenting this image for your interpretation. It has meaning for me.  What you also don’t see and what you don’t know is that for most of my paintings that I do, I paint up and over the edges of the frame’s borders so that the acrylic painting is extended.  So, from where you are sitting, you can not see the entire picture.

Twin Souls

I love “The  Love” between these two animals.  They are gorgeous and magnificent horses.  They are Splendid in form.  I will assume they are twins and so therefore twin souls.  I have other cute images of the horses being close and loving to one another. First the one shows affection, then the other shows affection and sometimes, it is as if they embrace or show love at the same time to each other.

Red Barn & Blonde Horses

These are gorgeous blonde horses in front of their home beside a brilliant red barn.   I am not sure how they are related whether two brothers, two sisters, brother and sister, mother and son or daughter, or father and daughter and son.  Maybe they are twins or are they just friends sharing a farm together.  Whatever the familiy relationship, they are just gorgeous horse specimens.
