    Frigid temperatures often bring clear skies and the possibilitiy of great light but not always. I was fortunate to capture this image near Swan River last evening. It's a nice way to end the day.

    I'm on the road in northern Manitoba searching for more winter imagery. I knew it would be cold but I had not expected the high winds. The air temperature is brutally cold even when jumping out there for a few minutes to capture an image. Because I'm well dressed, I'm not cold but I must be mindful that my cheeks and nose coud freeze in a few minutes. I caught the last rays of the setting sun as the wind blew fiercly across the frozen prairie near Dauphin.

    There are only a few days left to the 10-day 'Festival du Voyageur', Western Canada's Largest Winter Festival. The Festival celebrates Manitoba's Francophonie and is held each year in February at Fort Gilbraltor in Saint-Boniface, a neighbourhood of Winnipeg. Enjoy arts and crafts, exhibits, displays and entertainment, including much live music. My favorite part has always been viewing the snow sculptures of the many participating artists. Have a look at a selection of this year's sculptures and live music captures by clicking on the main image.

    Over the course of the last few months, I have been creating new images in the Saint-Boniface neighbourhood of Winnipeg. To be exact, I have been photographing the remains of the old Saint-Boniface Cathedral (the Fifth Church) which burned on July 22nd, 1968 as well as the new Saint-Boniface Cathedral (the Sixth Church) which was completed in 1972. Did you know there were 6 churches built on that site? I most certainly didn't. This last church was designed by our very own 'architecte extraordinaire' - Étienne Gaboury. Most of you probably know that Étienne designed a number of iconic Winnipeg buildings and structures such as the Esplanade Riel Bridge, The Royal Canadian Mint, l'église Precieux-Sang (Precious Blood Church), le Centre culturel Franco-Manitobain, the Manitoba Remand Centre and the Videon Cable Building amongst many others.

    The 'Tower of Hope' atop the new Canadian Museum for Human Rights lit up this week during the yearly celebration of 'Festival du Voyageur'. The 'Tower of Hope' has mostly been in the dark during the construction of the building and now during the preparation of the exhibits. We have seen the Tower lit up only on special occasions but hopefully that will be the norm once the Museum opens on September 20th of this year.
