Grand Beach

Grand Beach – Photography by Mary Mikawoz

For once, the waters and the sand are empty of people. The summer season is essentially over and only a few brave souls make it out onto Grand Beach. This photograph has a richness of colours as there are three stripes of colours crossing the horizon from the sky, the lake and the sand. I took my chances and waded through the water to see if it was warm or cold. It was a tinge warm but already turning cold.

This beach is fantastic and a great place to walk on the boardwalk. Normally, people are having fun by sunning themselves, playing frisbee or football, catch in the water or volleyball on the sand. 

CBC reported, “Grand Beach (is) less than an hour from Winnipeg. Grand Beach has been called one of Canada’s best beaches. The beach has three kilometres of fine, white sand backed by 12-metre sand dunes on the edge of the town of Grand Marais in Grand Beach Provincial Park.”

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.

Sand Ridges

Sand Ridges

Right at the edge of the water is evidence of the sand building up over time with ridges. You can see the layers building up. In the foreground, is the rippling water and then the sand is in beautiful folds and layers. The lake is teaming with life as it moves and sways to the current flows and the winds. I love the textures and contrast of the photograph. I also see a heart and some other beautiful shapes in the sand. 

This photograph was taken at Matheson Island, north of Gimli, Manitoba.

Decay

Decay

I was walking along the sandy beaches near the ocean at Stanley Park in Vancouver, British Columbia when I saw something interesting. It was this embedded tree in the sand. It had been decaying because of the elements of sun, wind, water and sand. It has become integrally part of the Earth once more. I like the interesting divots and features in the wood.

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.”

Solemness

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.

Spikes

Spikes

I took this photograph while hiking in and around Mesa, Arizona. The cactus is full of spikes and prickly thorns. Although it is full of spikes, there is beauty in this nature too.

According to Wikipedia, “In plant morphology, thorns, spines, and prickles, and in general spinose structures, are hard, rigid extensions or modifications of leaves, roots, stems or buds with sharp, stiff ends, and generally serve the same function: physically deterring animals from eating the plant material.”

Boat On Bahama Beach

This was the sandy beach with a boat on Freeport, Bahamas in the Caribbean Islands on the Atlantic Ocean.

I like the silhouette of the boat.

Beauty Of Breath

These beautiful flowers were growing near the beaches of Bahamas. They are absolutely gorgeous and perfect. You can see the sand in the background. They give us oxygen as we feed it carbon dioxide. The world is perfectly made.

Wrinkles in Time

Wrinkles In Time

The water in the Bahama Islands has created these “Wrinkles in Time.” I took a number of photographs of these sand ridges. It is as if they are individual finger prints in the memory of time and sand. It was hard to find places were people had not stood and ruined the individual prints. I like the texture and flow. It is like musical rhythm.

We Are Family

Here are some wonderful cacti that have little baby cacti growing around and through the cactus.

Wikipedia indicates “Botanically, “spines” are distinguished from “thorns”: spines are modified leaves, and thorns are modified branches. Cacti produce spines…”
