In anticipation of the lunar eclipse, I went out last night at sunset to view the full moon rising above the prairie. I captured the moon cradled by a large cottonwood near Grande Pointe. As the moon rose beyond the layer of cloud above the horizon, it began to take on a pinkish cast for a while until it got higher.
We can now safely assume that Winnipeg's worst winter since 1898 is officially over! We just experienced the coldest and most brutal winter of the past century. But today was a markedly different day. It started off with a little morning sun which begged a nice cup of coffee outside on the patio. The afternoon saw a few showers accompanied by the most gentle of rainbows and the day culminated with clearing skies, witnessed by this photo of pink clouds framing a lone tree. Let Spring truly begin!
