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.

Sunny Sunflower

The sunflower looks like the face a sun would have. It is bright and cheery with red, orange and yellow hues on its petals. I thought this would be a nice summer time photo to have to brighten us up as today is a dreary, rainy autumn day and we need that golden ray of sunshine. 

I feel as if it is saying “Hello World! Things will be better very soon. I promise.”

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.

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.
