Mom and Son

Mom and Son

Today is a special day in that it is my son’s birthday. I have chosen this photograph of two bison as it represents the Mom who is nearby whereas her son is exploring the world around him. It is representative of me and my son. He is, in fact, a fully grown and a good man but I will always be his Mom. 

Happy Birthday to my son Kyle!

Higher on High

Higher on High

This is a photograph of Manitoba Hydro workers working in the Interlake Area at the intersection of Highway 8 and 234 taken yesterday. It is north of Riverton, on the way to Hecla and further north on the stretch to Pine Dock and Matheson Island. 

They were working in symmetry all knowing what their particular job was. It was like a uniform synchronized swim but high up high in the air.

Bothered by Burrs

I took this close-up photograph of a bison. He is looking intently back at me. I thought the bison was covered in regular grasses from manoeuvring his head in the fields and that is sort of true. On closer examination, there are burrs which stick onto the body, fur and clothes. 

I remember as a little girl running through a relative’s farm fields and being so intrigued by these spikey flowery-things only to be horrified when I touched them and they stuck into my fingers and would not let go. I thought “What are these cruel things that look so fascinating and interesting doing?” The thistle hung on and the more I tried to make it come off, the more it stuck into my skin. 

In this picture, the head of the bison has burrs on it, as well as on its sides. The bisons do sometimes roll around on the ground and get covered in this way. As my husband would say, “It is a Beast of Burr-den.”

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.”

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.

Fall Equinox

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.

Golden Fields

Golden Fields

I took this photograph in the fields around the Interlake area of Manitoba. I really enjoy the pattern of the bales of hay on the prairies with its golden tone. I took this image and put a variety of filters on it to make it look more like a painting effect with fibers.

Blue Domed Beehives

Mikawoz Blue Domed Beehives

Blue Domed Beehives

Usually beehives are made of wood but in this case, these beehives were made of a blue plastic shaped into a dome. I took this photograph near Stonewall in the Interlake area of Manitoba. I kept the blue colour to emphasize how unique and outstanding they are in the fields they pollinate.

According to Wikipedia, “Bees feed on nectar and pollen, the former primarily as an energy source and the latter primarily for protein and other nutrients.”

Gimli Beach

Mikawoz Gimli Beach

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.”

Perspective

I took this photograph while lying down on the ground in autumn by Lake Winnipeg in Little Deer. It was a glorious day of watching the leaves softly fall to the ground. I looked up at the breadth and wealth of the canopy of trees.
