Wilting Sunflower

Wilting Sunflower

I went for a walk in the fall time and came across a garden with beautiful sunflowers. This one was wilting from having been cold during the night. I like the fact that it has character despite having faced difficulties.  

It is dealing with the negative elements but doing incredibly well. It is like people who deal with problems and issues but continue to be positive and come out up on top. 

Good luck to any and all people facing difficulties. Face the challenges and come up over the barricade or hurdle with achievement and accomplishments.

Touch of Red

Touch of Red

I absolutely love the contrast in this autumn scene. The red of the fruit of the tree contrasts nicely with the white of the plants around and in front of it that are nicely frosted in the cold. I like the effect of the light in the picture along with the various textures. I love the mood and effect of the photograph gives off. 

Snow is actually softly falling in the air as I took this photograph. This was taken at the English Gardens at Assiniboine Park in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada.

Streaks of Autumn

Streaks of Autumn

I absolutely loved taking these photographs of autumn. We were beside the lakeshore on Lake Winnipeg lying on our backs watching the leaves fall down. The colours in the trees were beautiful and the skyline had streaks of clouds in it. It was breathtaking and a very special series of moments. 

It was taken in Little Deer which is between Beaver Creek and Pine Dock on the west shore of Lake Winnipeg in Manitoba.

Fall Equinox

This is a panoramic photograph I took this morning at the shoreline of Lake Winnipeg at Little Deer at 8:30 am when it was the right time for the change of seasons Central Standards Time (CST) for this area. This is approximately 2 hours north of Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada. 

I love the beautiful golden hue and tone of the sun with its juxtaposition against the blue of the water and sky. 

I like how your eye leads you into the water of the photo with the trees framing the image nicely. It also invites you in and makes you want to go swimming but it is getting too cold for that already.

Beautiful Fall Day

It is all about perspective. From below, you can see the huge rock, the incredibly gorgeous trees changing colour and starting to fall to the Earth beside the lakeshore. The clouds in the sky are dramatic.

Here is an image of an old house that is no longer in use and once upon a time saw better times. This is a relic from just north of Pinedock, Manitoba. There is overgrowth up and around this old home.

Happenstance

Happenstance

I was just walking along in a park when I looked down and saw the beautiful arrangement of an oak leaf and acorns on the pathway. It was as if someone had intentionally put it there to be just in perfect balance and harmony. It is nature against a man-made backdrop. “From the beginning seed of a small acorn, will grow a magnificent oak tree which started out with humble beginnings with dreams and aspirations of greatness.” Quote by Mary Mikawoz.

Bloedel Conservatory

Bloedel Conservatory

It was a end of fall day when we were visiting the Bloedel Conservatory. i liked the shape and textural architecture of the round dome building. I like ht paths leading up to it and also the water fountains.This building has been used in many TV shows and movies.

According to Vancouver, Parks and Recreation, “Bloedel Conservatory is a domed lush paradise located in Queen Elizabeth Park atop the City of Vancouver’s highest point. More than 120 free-flying exotic birds, 500 exotic plants and flowers thrive within its temperature-controlled environment.”

Two Saplings

I took this photograph, believe it or not, was taken on December 15, 2011 north of Winnipeg and north of Riverton on Lake Winnipeg.  Winnipeggers and Manitobans will note the lack of winter.  That winter not only did the snow come late but it left early unlike this year.  This has been one of the longest “winters” record in Winnipeg’s history.  Even today, on May 10, 2013, it feels very cold and almost like snow weather.  In fact, the projected low overnight is 0˚ Celsius or 32 ˚ Fahrenheit.

These are my favourite two saplings up at our cottage.  I love looking at them as they change with each season from no leaves and snow to buds, to full leaves and then gently losing them to the wind and gravitational pull of the Earth.  Seasons come and seasons go as time ticks on.
