Winnipeg Skyline

Winnipeg Skyline – Photography by Mary Mikawoz – Click on image or link to see the bigger picture.

I was on a plane recently and was able to sit on the correct side of the airplane to capture this picture of the Winnipeg Skyline during daylight hours. The buildings may not be as momentous as that found in the architectural skyline of Chicago, New York or Paris but it is significant as the downtown core has all the bigger buildings spreading out to the wonderful wide and flat expanse of the prairies. I like the flow of the river as it bends and curves through the city.

According to Wikipedia, “Winnipeg is the capital and largest city of the province of Manitoba in Canada. It is centred on the confluence of the Red and Assiniboine rivers, near the longitudinal centre of North America. As of 2021, Winnipeg had a city population of 749,607 and a metropolitan population of 834,678, making it the sixth-largest city, and eighth-largest metropolitan area in Canada.”

With my art, I am often in a zen-type of mood and with my photography, I feel as if I am inspired by God or the Universe to capture these moments in time.

Winnipeg Floodway

Mikawoz Winnipeg Floodway

Winnipeg Floodway

On a plane trip back to the Winnipeg Airport we flew over the Winnipeg Floodway. Although it seems like it is a river it is just way too darn straight to be one. It is also known as the Red River Floodway and Duff’s Ditch after Premier Duff Roblin after his government implemented it after the disastrous 1950 flood. It has saved countless floods and money in this plains area.

According to Wikipedia, “It was designated a National Historic Site of Canada in 2000, as the floodway is an outstanding engineering achievement both in terms of function and impact.”

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.”
