Winter’s Coming

I know we have some time left but based on the colder temperatures and more precipitation we have had lately, we will be in winter sometime soon. The crops have already been harvested and only stubble remains in the fields.  

The hay bales have been processed and soon there will be a layer of snow on it. There is fun in the winter time to be had though too. It is something you learn to encompass in your life and live with the best you can. Time to prepare.

Cute One

I took this photograph of this prairie dog in Edmonton even though they can be found throughout the prairie regions of Canada.  

According to Wikipedia, “Prairie dogs (genus Cynomys) are herbivorous burrowing rodents native to the grasslands of North America. The five species are: black-tailed, white-tailed, Gunnison’s, Utah, and Mexican prairie dogs. They are a type of ground squirrel, found in North America.” 

I remember that in one of my very first cross-country races as a teenager was at Omand’s Creek and Park in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada, I stepped into a gopher hole and twisted my ankle while running. I went over my ankle but I kept going and finished the race. I would have avoided the hole but there were so many runners around me and we were bunched up through a narrow pathway that I could not see it coming up all of a sudden. Live and learn. 

They are cute despite creating big holes and tunnels in the ground which can be dangerous.

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.

On the Range

On the Range

Here is a photograph I took of an abandoned old farm house out on the range. It is dramatic with the clouds in the West. It is as if it is brooding with emotion. I also enjoy the perspective of the house in the photograph as a whole.

Wild Grass

Wild Grass

I love nature in all its forms. I like the wild grass that you particularly find in the prairies. This has a dandelion in the foreground and wild grass in the background. I have added some textures and filters to make it more interesting.

Wind Turbines

Wind Turbines

Thankfully we, as a society, are looking at alternative energy sources. Here is a photograph that I took of a line of very tall wind turbines. The skyline was very dramatic that day. This picture was taken in Alberta, home to the major oil producers in Canada who have alternative sources of energy too.

According to Wikipedia, “A wind turbine, or alternatively referred to as a wind energy converter, is a device that converts the wind’s kinetic energy into electrical energy. Wind turbines are manufactured in a wide range of vertical and horizontal axis.”

Wild Wheat

This is originally a photograph of some wild wheat on a hill. It was taken in southern Alberta but it most typical of all the prairies. I have created a new photoart painting with effects and filters.

Here is a photograph of clover and wildflowers which I have creatively played with to be photo art and photo painting. I like the colours and the subtle existence of nature.

Hawk on Post

Hawk on Post

Whether you are going north, south, east or west in the prairies, you will see an hawk on a post of a farmer’s field. It is actually a hard picture to get because as you slow down in your car, the hawk takes off.

Interesting information from Wikipedia include, “Hawks, like most birds, are tetrachromats having four types of colour receptors in the eye. These give hawks the ability to perceive not only the visible range but also ultraviolet light. Other adaptations allow for the detection of polarized light or magnetic fields.”

Recaptured Life

Recaptured Life

The house is abandoned and you can see from the open window right through the house to the open door.

It is weathered and worn while nature in its greenery has started to grow back and recapture life in the prairies. In fact, I think clover has started to grow in the recesses of the wood.
