Rock Balance

Rock Balance

I was walking along the shores of Lake Winnipeg up around Matheson Island. The water had receded so I could walk along the area that is normally under the lake. It is interesting how the water has picked up and perfectly placed the rock on the middle of some crack lines going off into many directions and angles. You can even see the shadow of the rock from the setting sun in the west.

I like the way your eye is taking in off to many directions yet creating the effect of coming back to the center of the image where the rock is king while appreciating the balance of the composition.

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

Peyto Lake

Peyto Lake

I took this image of Peyto Lake after hiking up the trail to the top view and to appreciate this incredibly beautiful azure colour of the water. I like the way there is snow up in the mountains and the sky is so dramatic looking. 

The hike is 3.8 miles round trip but it is totally worth it. The lake is found 40 kilometers or 25 miles north of Lake Louise on the Icefields Highway. Currently, Peyto Lake is closed to visitors until November 2020. It has been open to visitors since 1941 but right now, it is undergoing renovations by the Canadian government in the amount of 2.9 million dollars. 

According to Wikipedia, “Peyto Lake is a glacier-fed lake in Banff National Park in the Canadian Rockies…It was named for Bill Peyto, an early trail guide and trapper in the Banff area.”

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.

Time for Rain

I took this photograph on the western shores of Lake Winnipeg. In it, you can see a dramatic sky and the coming rain. The water is currently calm but in the near distance are the rain clouds coming forth. I feel as if the sky was painted by God’s brush as it has texture and flow.

Spectacular Alberta View

Mikawoz Spectacular Alberta View

Spectacular Alberta View

This photograph was taken on top of the ride on the Lake Louise Gondola ride. It showcases the emerald green lake of Lake Louise and behind her, the great Victoria Glacier.

According to Wikipedia, “Lake Louise is named after the Princess Louise Caroline Alberta (1848–1939), the fourth daughter of Queen Victoria and the wife of the Marquess of Lorne, who was the Governor General of Canada from 1878 to 1883.”

Also, “The turquoise colour of the water comes from rock flour carried into the lake by melt-water from the glaciers that overlook the lake,”

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.

Solemness

This is a photograph I took while hiking at Astotin Lake in Elk Island National Park. The water was just soft and gently moving creating a feeling of solemness. I like the way the two benches are standing in a solitary positions but are alone without occupants.

“Look Ma, I can fly!”

This is an image of a pelican flying near a dock on Lake Winnipeg.  I like the way he or she delicately takes off from the rocks to fly and seems to be saying “Look Ma, I can fly!”  The other pelican is oblivious and looks like he or she is saying, “Boy, I don’t care.  Stop showing off my brother/sister (pick one).  We can all do that!  Who really cares!  I am going to ignore you.”

Their large beak and large throat pouch is used for catching fish and not carrying babies as fairy tales would have us believe.  Too bad!  They range in many areas and fossil evidence show that they date back to 30 million years ago.  They are gregarious birds who hunt cooperatively and breed colonially.  Pelicans are found on inland lakes and costal waters.

According to Wikipedia, “They have suffered from habitat destruction, disturbance and environmental pollution, and three species are of conservation concern. They also have a long history of cultural significance in mythology, and in Christian and heraldic iconography.”

Seven Sisters Falls Damn

Because Canada is a younger country, weather records show that this is the latest spring on record in Winnipeg’s history in 141 years.  As such, this picture is interesting because it is a month after Spring has officially started and yet the Seven Sisters Damn on the Winnipeg River is still very solidly frozen with ice and snow.  Seven Sisters was originally known as Seven Portages.

Further upstream on the Whitemouth Falls, the water is starting to open.  The River system flows north to Lake Winnipeg which is the 10th largest fresh-water lake in the world.  There are 10 major watershed draining areas that contribute to this lake from Alberta on the west, to Ontario on the East and North Dakota on the south.  It flows northward to the Hudson Bay and the Arctic Ocean.  This generation station is responsible for many hydro lines directly into Winnipeg to provide electrical power and service to this community.
