Spent a very warm day in the Whiteshell back in late January. Much of the day was a fairly dreary grey, but I was treated to some lovely fog at dawn.
Editor’s note: Although the skies were looking pretty ominous, no storm materialized.
This is a beautiful stretch of highway that follows immediately from the last post. From Learys Road (or whatever it might be called, I turned north (just north of Babcock) on the 44W up to Provincial Road 245. From there I headed west, and then north again on the 244. Another gorgeous little patch of the province.
Here are the first few photos from the third and final Manitoba road trip I did in the summer/fall of 2015. The day got off to a great start with a beautiful, misty sunrise as I headed towards La Salle, through the RM of MacDonald.
In other news, today marks exactly eight years of Winnipeg Love Hate; it was started on February 29—leap year—2008. Thanks for your continued support over the years!
A couple of previously unedited shots from 2009 taken north of the city. First, the East. St. Paul Fire Hall, and second, a gorgeous sunset somewhere between Gimli and the Perimeter.
A couple of photos in and around Pelican Lake, the largest lake in southwestern Manitoba.
A quick stop on the edge of Holland, Manitoba on cloudy (but not stormy) summer day.
Other than the occasional fish fly swarm of biblical proportions, Victoria Beach is a gorgeous beach community, where classic Manitoba sunsets can be seen.
Alexander Docks. Previously unedited photo from 2011.
I took a drive out Pipeline Road one night to check out the Aurora, and I was not disappointed. The big challenge is finding something interesting to place in the foreground (otherwise it’s just the Aurora and a flat horizon…not too interesting). I think I did okay with this collapsed shed. On the way back I stopped and took some photos of the city glow.
