Frozen Wheat

Thank you for liking, sharing or commenting.

Thank you for liking, sharing or commenting.

This was during an end of winter/beginning of spring drive.  Beside this frozen shafts of wheat were spots of spring starting with green grass popping up.  I like the curvature of the wheat as it wisps and twirls with the wind’s direction.  I like the quiet beauty of the wheat that just won’t quit despite it being out of season.  I also like the way parts of the snow look blue in the shadows.

Whitemouth River Falls

I love the contrast of the water in this photo.  The snow and ice are white, serene and still.  Underneath, you find flowing and open water but it is placid and calm.  It looks blue but it clear water.  Just below, you see the water not only trickle but really come alive as it falls over rocks.  From passive to active, this water flows and changes down the river path.

Due to the many rapids along this river’s path, it is apparently very popular with canoe enthusiasts.  Aside from the Seven Sisters, there are also the towns of River Hills, Elma, Whitemouth, and Hadashville located along the river in Manitoba, Canada.

Seven Sisters Falls Damn

Because Canada is a younger country, weather records show that this is the latest spring on record in Winnipeg’s history in 141 years.  As such, this picture is interesting because it is a month after Spring has officially started and yet the Seven Sisters Damn on the Winnipeg River is still very solidly frozen with ice and snow.  Seven Sisters was originally known as Seven Portages.

Further upstream on the Whitemouth Falls, the water is starting to open.  The River system flows north to Lake Winnipeg which is the 10th largest fresh-water lake in the world.  There are 10 major watershed draining areas that contribute to this lake from Alberta on the west, to Ontario on the East and North Dakota on the south.  It flows northward to the Hudson Bay and the Arctic Ocean.  This generation station is responsible for many hydro lines directly into Winnipeg to provide electrical power and service to this community.

Blue Mountains

Blue skies, blue mountains, blue borders it all.  These are the incredible Rocky Mountains found in Alberta and British Columbia, Canada.  They are stoic and ever-lasting in their beauty as they grace the Canadian landscape.  Wisps of gentle white clouds linger along the mountain peaks.  At the base you can see the coniferous trees growing and yet on top you see the white snow and ice.  I hope you enjoy this image as much as I enjoyed being in their presence and taking their photographs.
