Duo Bins

Duo Bins

I took this photograph in the Interlake area of Manitoba. There are two grain bins with the fields behind them. I like the black and white effect of the steel grain bins. At this time of year, they are full and waiting for the right time to go to market and then travel around the world to feed people.  

According to Sciencing website, “In most silos, gravity causes grain to flow from the top of the silo and out through an opening at the bottom near the center. At that opening, a machine called an auger transports the grain to a vehicle or another grain storage facility. As grain flows through the auger, it forms a funnel shape at the top of the silo.”

Winter’s Coming

I know we have some time left but based on the colder temperatures and more precipitation we have had lately, we will be in winter sometime soon. The crops have already been harvested and only stubble remains in the fields.  

The hay bales have been processed and soon there will be a layer of snow on it. There is fun in the winter time to be had though too. It is something you learn to encompass in your life and live with the best you can. Time to prepare.

Pump It Up

I don’t know what it is about old-fashioned water hand pumps, but I really, really like them. I remember trying (playing) with them when I was a little kid. It was fun to see that if you worked at it really hard, it would produce water (results). 

From the MotherEarthNews website, “The pump principle has changed little since its inception, whether for the piston pump invented in 275 BC by Ctesibius, or the rope pump invented in China during the 1st century BC. Hand pumps were still commonly used in the countryside of the United States and Europe in the 19th century.”

Dark Farmland

Dark Farmland

I took this photograph because I liked the composition of the farm house, the grain bin and the hay bale. I have created a digital artwork like a painting from it using the colours present in the picture. It is taking the best of black and white while highlighting it with colours as well. 

It seems like there are dark clouds in the background while sunlight still shines on the foreground. I feel there is a beauty despite it being a gloomy and sulky image. Where there is darkness, there is also a glimmer of hope. 

It was taken in the Interlake area of Manitoba.

Blue Door

I took this photograph of a few outcrop buildings in the prairie fields of rural Manitoba. I found it interesting because it had a blue door naturally. I have made the image black and white so that it stands out even more. 

It was found on a farm in the Rural Municipality of Morris south of Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada. I hope you like it and find it an interesting shot.

Two Bales of Hay

Two Bales of hay

I took this photograph en route from Winnipeg through Teulon to Arborg, Manitoba, Canada. These towns are found in the Interlake area between Lake Winnipeg and Lake Manitoba. 

According to Wikipedia, “Hay is grass, legumes, or other herbaceous plants that have been cut and dried to be stored for use as animal fodder, particularly for large grazing animals raised as livestock, such as cattle, horses, goats, and sheep.”

I like the composition of the two bales of hay in relations to each other. I have made the image a combination of purple and gold colours.

This is originally a photograph of some wild wheat on a hill. It was taken in southern Alberta but it most typical of all the prairies. I have created a new photoart painting with effects and filters.

Recaptured Life

Recaptured Life

The house is abandoned and you can see from the open window right through the house to the open door.

It is weathered and worn while nature in its greenery has started to grow back and recapture life in the prairies. In fact, I think clover has started to grow in the recesses of the wood.

Old Water Pump

Old Water Pump

On a dark, gloomy day I came across an old water pump beside an old relic of a building. It is still there despite having been abandoned a long time ago. I found it while driving in the Interlake Region of Manitoba, Canada.

Here is a once-upon-a-time house and home to a farm family from way back in Manitoba history. It is falling apart and barely standing.
