Winnipeg Skyline

Winnipeg Skyline – Photography by Mary Mikawoz – Click on image or link to see the bigger picture.

I was on a plane recently and was able to sit on the correct side of the airplane to capture this picture of the Winnipeg Skyline during daylight hours. The buildings may not be as momentous as that found in the architectural skyline of Chicago, New York or Paris but it is significant as the downtown core has all the bigger buildings spreading out to the wonderful wide and flat expanse of the prairies. I like the flow of the river as it bends and curves through the city.

According to Wikipedia, “Winnipeg is the capital and largest city of the province of Manitoba in Canada. It is centred on the confluence of the Red and Assiniboine rivers, near the longitudinal centre of North America. As of 2021, Winnipeg had a city population of 749,607 and a metropolitan population of 834,678, making it the sixth-largest city, and eighth-largest metropolitan area in Canada.”

With my art, I am often in a zen-type of mood and with my photography, I feel as if I am inspired by God or the Universe to capture these moments in time.

Mulberry Haze

Mulberry Haze – Photography by Mary Mikawoz

This is a photograph at Little Deer on Lake Winnipeg. The sun was setting and the Hunter’s Moon was coming above the water to the East moments after I had take this shot facing North.

I love the magical colours of purple, pink and blue in the sky and the reflections in the water below. The rocks are solid on the ground creating a barrier to the water and also the tree is creating some interesting aspects in the photograph.

Jagged Little Rocks

Jagged Little Rocks

I was walking along the shoreline of Lake Winnipeg enjoying the autumn leaves turning all sorts of brilliant colours of orange, yellow and red. Down at my feet were these series of jagged little rocks. 

It was as if they were a smaller scale of a formation of rocks being pushed up against each other. It reminded me of the heaving and cleaving of tectonic plates pushing against one another. 

They stuck up straight up out of the Earth in a vertical fashion. They were interesting and intriguing and so I took a photograph of them. 

On the basis of the name alone of this photograph, Jagged Little Rocks, it reminds me of the “Jagged Little Pill” album by Canadian singer and songwriter Alanis Morissette.

Craven

Craven

This is what my husband and I, affectionately, call these birds: “Cravens.” It is actually a combination between the words, Crows and Ravens. They are so similar in appearance that we combine the names into one name, “Cravens” There is a difference between the two though. 

According to the Audubon Website, “These two species, Common Ravens and American Crows, overlap widely throughout North America, and they look quite similar. But with a bit of practice, you can tell them apart.” 

Further they write, “You probably know that ravens are larger, the size of a Red-tailed Hawk. Ravens often travel in pairs, while crows are seen in larger groups.” 

As well, “Listen closely to the birds’ calls. Crows give a cawing sound. But ravens produce a lower croaking sound…While crows caw and purr, ravens croak and scream bloody murder.” 

In flight, “Ravens ride the thermals and soar, whereas crows do more flapping.” 

I took this photograph in the Interlake area where the Cravens were hanging out near some Bald Eagles. I was able to get a pretty good close-up of the Craven. In some cultures, crows and ravens are seen as magical messengers from the Divine.

Pine Dock Harbour

This is a photograph I took of the harbour in Pine Dock which is north of Gimli, Manitoba, Canada. There is a quaint little lighthouse for those early morning fishing times when the professionals head out to check their nets or when they come in late past dusk. There is also a nice Canada Flag on a pole situate on the rocks.. 

There are a number of buildings in the area including a fish processing plant nearby. 

I have made the photograph into an artistic painting by digitally altering it.

Dodgy Ice

This is a photograph of the dock at Washow Bay which is north of Riverton on the way to Beaver Creek Provincial Park. It is a favourite spot for fishing by locals. 

This was taken in the spring time as the ice was starting to melt and as you can see it is a bit dodgy to be on. There is absolutely no way you could safely take your snowmobile for ice fishing on Lake Winnipeg as you can do most of the winter time when freeze up happens. 

Soon the ice will refreeze and sports fishermen and fisherwomen can go back to their glory. 

I have taken the liberty to put some special effects to the picture which highlights the different depths of the ice as it disappears

Pelicano 

I took the original photograph of the Pelicano and then created an artwork from it. I love the pelicans that I see on Lake Winnipeg and water areas. My husband and I have always affectionately called these birds, Pelicanos, not realizing that that is the Spanish word for them.  

According to the What’s Your Sign website, “Pelicans are symbols of love, sacrifice and motherhood. This has to do with legends about pelicans giving their own blood and life in order to save their offspring. Pelicans remind us how self-sacrifice is often required in order to protect who and what we love.”

Brown Eyes

Brown Eyes

This is a photograph of a red fox with beautiful brown eyes and gorgeous red fur coat. I took the photo in the Interlake area which is north of Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada. He was not seemingly too scared of us. He walked along and even opened his mouth which I think is interesting and I wonder why. I know that cats open their mouths off to use their sense of smell – Jacobson’s organ. 

According to National Geographic, the Vulpes Vulpes or “Red foxes are solitary hunters who feed on rodents, rabbits, birds, and other small game—but their diet can be as flexible as their home habitat. Foxes will eat fruit and vegetables, fish, frogs, and even worms. If living among humans, foxes will opportunistically dine on garbage and pet food.”

New Life

New Life – Photography by Mary Mikawoz

New Life

This is a photograph I took near Little Deer in Manitoba, Canada. It is showing the contrast between trees that are broken down, separated and decaying. However, it also shows that life anew is happening with regrowth and new life. It is showing the verdant life form. It is like the cycles of life; of death and rebirth. It continues in nature’s pattern and way.

Tiny Fossil

Tiny Fossil

I took this photograph along the shores of Lake Winnipeg in Manitoba. As I was walking along the shoreline, I found this beautiful gem. What is interesting about Lake Winnipeg is that it was part of an ancient inland ocean. According to Wikipedia, “Lake Winnipeg was considered to be an inland sea, with important river links to the mountains out west, the Great Lakes to the east, and the Arctic Ocean in the north. The Red River linked ancient northern and southern peoples along the Missouri and Mississippi Rivers.” 

If I am correct, this is an ammonite in rock. According to the British Geological Survey, “Ammonites lived during the periods of Earth history known as the Jurassic and Cretaceous. Together, these represent a time interval of about 140 million years.”
