Gimli Beach

This is Gimli on the west shore of Lake Winnipeg. It is strangely calm which is unusual for this lake. I like the lines of the water, sand, building and trees. I have put in a special photo filter to make it more calm-like and cool

According to Wikipedia, “The community’s first European settlers were Icelanders who were part of the New Iceland settlement in Manitoba.”

Hay Field

Mikawoz Hay Field

Hay Field

This is a beautiful hay field just north of Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada. I believe it is north of Gimli and Riverton on the way to Pinedock and Matheson Island.

“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.” This is according to Wikipedia.

Unfortunately, hay is not grown as much now. The stalks of plant life has been modified so as to not be as long as they once were either.

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.
