Fountain And Ducks

I actually took this photo a decade ago. The lush green algae has covered the pond which affectionately is known as the skating pond in winter time at Assiniboine Park, in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada. It is technically called the Riley Family Duck Pond and is situated close to the Pavilion and also the Qualico Family Centre.

Rocks Amongst Greenery

This was taken at the Duck Pond in St. Vital Park in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada. The boulders are a great place to take family pictures at. There is bird home in the background up on a stilt. it was particularly green with algae that year.

According to Wikipedia, “St. Vital Park is a 100 acres park in southern Winnipeg, Manitoba, located on a bend of the Red River.”

Night Hues

Night Hues

I was trying to get an effect with the camera. I have much better shots of the moon that you can check out at my portfolio on Fine Art America. What I like about this photo is the mysterious nature of the full moon amidst the blue hues of the night sky and the trees.

Sunflower Patch

Sunflower Patch

I found this full sunflower patch just north of Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada. What was strange was that it was later in the summer season and the field should have been harvested but had not been for some reason.

According to the internet, “Sunflower harvesting has a long history as an American tradition and they have been part of man’s diet for centuries. Native Americans were harvesting sunflower seeds long before Europeans arrived. They boiled the heads to extract the oil and ate the seeds either raw or baked in breads and infusions were used medicinally. The seeds are a good source of calcium, phosphorus and potassium.”

Serenity at Lake Winnipeg

Serenity At Lake Winnipeg

This is a view of our lakeshore at our cottage in Little Deer, Manitoba, Canada. We call it “Serenity” for that is what it is and we are truly thankful. It is situated on Lake Winnipeg. I love the white puffy clouds, the blue serene lake, the awesome trees and the boulders and rocks – just the whole beautiful natural scene.

Mama And Ducklings

I like this image of the Mama Duck and her little wee ducklings. They are in a algae covered pond at St. Vital Park in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada. I am not sure why but that spring there was a lot of green algae in the pond.

Dragonfly on Tree

Dragonfly On Tree

This is a beautiful dragonfly on a birch tree. I love dragonflies because they are beautiful as they hover and fly around and they eat mosquitoes too.

According to Wikipedia, “Fossils of very large dragonfly ancestors in the Protodonata are found from 325 million years ago (Mya) in Upper Carboniferous rocks; these had wingspans up to about 750 mm (30 in). There are about 3,000 extant species. Most are tropical, with fewer species in temperate regions. Loss of wetland habitat threatens dragonfly populations around the world.”

Sunflowers in the Winter Sun

Sunflowers In The Winter Sun

In this photo, the winter sun is starting to set in the West. With heads bowed, the sunflowers are saying good-bye to the retreating day of sun. I love the combination of the shadows drawn out in curves on the snow and the tree branches framing the photograph. Thanks for liking, commenting, sharing and purchasing.

All In A Row

I took this photo because I was fascinated that vibrant tall-standing sunflower plants were still up in the winter snow and sun. I love the way the snow clings to the sunflowers and the lines of shadows that the sun casts on the snow.
