Sundogs Over Substation

Sundogs Over Substation

I took this photograph this afternoon near Gimli, Manitoba over the substation. The sun is fairly low in the sky as it is winter time. The Sundogs on either side of the sun indicate that it is cold outside or that it will be. Both are true in this case. With temperatures in the minus 20 degrees Celsius range, or minus 4 Fahrenheit, you know it is cold.  

Here is the current forecast from Environment Canada, “A bitterly cold north wind will bring extreme wind chills of minus 40 to much of southern Manitoba overnight and into Thursday morning.” 

I like the brilliant star effect around the sun and the way the Sundogs are like little rainbow arcs around at the sun’s sides.

Dramatic Sky

Dramatic Sky

I took this photograph one cool fall night many moons ago in Assiniboine Park. The sun was setting in the west and the sky turned a multitude of magnificent colours including pink, blue, purple, red, orange, and yellow. It is a veritable rainbow of colours. The trees are dark silhouetted and seem to be dramatic or mysterious in their own way. 

I love the branches of the trees as they extend towards the sky yearning for more attention from the sun and their impending growth. They cry out to the sun, “Please give us more. We need you.” 

Throughout the seasons, they get what they need and now as we approach winter time, we go dormant and fall asleep for awhile in plant-life hibernation.

Sundown

Sundown

This was a beautiful evening in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico. The sun was setting in the west across the Pacific Ocean. The sky is a gorgeous and rich indigo blue that turns towards a dark, black hue. 

I captured the edge of one of the palapas as a silhouette and the waves coming onto the shoreline. I do believe there is a star in the hemisphere.

Glacial Heaven

Glacial Heaven

Up on the Athabasca Glacier, you will see a ton of ice and snow. You will see Heaven as you are higher up on the mountains. It is as if you are at the height of heaven because the clouds are right there at sight level. 

This photograph was captured after taking one of the tour buses up the glacier during summer-type conditions but it was just like winter. You had better bring some warm jackets or coats to keep warm from the cold. 

This glacier is found about half way between Banff and Jasper, Alberta. 

According to Wikipedia, “The Athabasca Glacier is one of the six principal ‘toes’ of the Columbia Icefield, located in the Canadian Rockies. The glacier currently loses depth at a rate of about 5 metres (16 ft) per year and has receded more than 1.5 km (0.93 mi) and lost over half of its volume in the past 125 years.”

Bee My Sunflower

I absolutely love how my photograph came out. I love to capture God’s or the Universe’s glory and beauty in its natural state of being. 

There is a busy, little bee doing what it does best. I like the colours of the red, orange and yellow of the sunflower. It is unique and different from the usual sunflowers I have seen. I also like how the colours are offset by the contrasting blue sky.

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.

Wilderness

Wilderness

This is a photograph I took in and around the National Parks in Banff and Jasper, Alberta. It takes in the breadth and beauty of the wilderness. The lake is pristine clear blue and the mountains are limited in the amount of snow they have on them. There is a reflection of the mountains in the water below. Finally, ]bushes up front frame the picture well and bring you into the image as if you were there.

Lightning

Mikawoz Ligtning

Lightning

This started off as an abstract drawing with coloured gel pens. I saw the strokes as lightning in the sky. I have added special effects to make the artwork more interesting. I like the forcefulness of the lightning in the sky during a storm and thunder.

Trois Aigles

Mikawoz Trois Aigles

Trois Aigles

These are three eagles flying high up in the sky. Actually, only two were originally in the photograph but I decided to add the third one as they were taken the same day within minutes of each other. They are spectacular raptors. All three are Bald Eagles but the centre one is actually an immature Bald Eagle which surprisingly looks like a Golden Eagle.

According to http://www.pure-spirit.com, “Eagle conveys the powers and messages of the spirit; it is man’s connection to the divine because it flies higher than any other bird. The eagle brings the message of renewed life because it is associated with the east winds – the direction of spring, dawn and rebirth.”

Beautiful Fall Day

Beautiful Fall Day

It is all about perspective. From below, you can see the huge rock, the incredibly gorgeous trees changing colour and starting to fall to the Earth beside the lakeshore. The clouds in the sky are dramatic.
