Rejuvenation

Mikawoz Rejuvenation

Rejuvenation

I took this on one of my hikes and found beauty in the decaying of trees in the forest. From the old and death, comes rejuvenation and regrowth. It is a positive way of looking at life as we all have seasons that come and go as winter is to spring as to summer and to autumn.

I like the various states the wood is in and also the way the flowers have come to fruition amongst the rotten state of affairs.

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.”

Red River View

Red River View

This is an aerial photograph of the Red River Valley system. It is a view that shows how the river snakes its way through the prairies. At this time of year, we have to concern ourselves with the flooding of the plains. “According to the province’s latest flood report, the Red River at James Avenue is expected to crest at 19 to 19.3 feet between April 21 and 23, 2020.”

Sundown Time

Sundown Time

These oak trees are the most perfect element in the beautiful autumn sky behind them. This photograph was taken at Assiniboine Park near the previous Conservatory in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada. The seasons continue to change and with it comes renewed hope as we enter Spring.

Frozen Wheat

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.

Two Saplings

I took this photograph, believe it or not, was taken on December 15, 2011 north of Winnipeg and north of Riverton on Lake Winnipeg.  Winnipeggers and Manitobans will note the lack of winter.  That winter not only did the snow come late but it left early unlike this year.  This has been one of the longest “winters” record in Winnipeg’s history.  Even today, on May 10, 2013, it feels very cold and almost like snow weather.  In fact, the projected low overnight is 0˚ Celsius or 32 ˚ Fahrenheit.

These are my favourite two saplings up at our cottage.  I love looking at them as they change with each season from no leaves and snow to buds, to full leaves and then gently losing them to the wind and gravitational pull of the Earth.  Seasons come and seasons go as time ticks on.

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.
