    'Prairie Sky' - Manitoba Series (Notecard and Photographic Print)

    As magnificent as the Canadian Rockies are, so are the grand and inspiring skies of the Canadian Prairies. From the subtle skies of a seemingly featureless cloudy day to the puffy cumulus clouds of a summer afternoon to the more dramatic skies of a spectacular sunrise or sunset, they are like ever-changing colors on a living canvas.

    The breeze too is part of the prairie experience, as are the sounds and the scents. The view is unobstructed because, on the prairie, one can see forever and ever and ever … almost to the next grain elevator a dozen kilometers or so away. This is truly the Land of the Living Skies.

    'Prairie Storm' - Manitoba Series (Notecard and Photographic Print)

    Manitoba has a strong history rooted in agriculture. Across much of the province’s south and central region and, even extending into northwestern Manitoba, one can find one of the most varied crop selections in the country. From the more traditional wheat, barley and oat crops, it is not unusual to see many fields of oilseed crops growing throughout the summer like canola, flax, sunflowers and soybeans. Other crops like buckwheat, pulses and a whole variety of vegetables can also be found growing on Manitoba farms.

    The success of these crops is very much dependent upon the local weather and this photograph captures light as it illuminates a field of canola after a passing storm, leaving the foreground crop of flax in deep shade.

    'Pisew Falls' - Manitoba Series (Notecard and Photographic Print)

    Pisew Falls means ‘lynx’ in the Cree language and the falls were named because the sound of its hissing waters resembles that of a hissing lynx. Pisew Falls is Manitoba’s second highest waterfall, second only to Kwasitchewan Falls further downstream. At Pisew Falls, the Grass River plunges some 13 meters into a gorge.

    A short boardwalk leads to several observation platforms providing various views of the falls. A trail leading across the Rotary Bridge on the north side and to the left of the falls provides closer views of these magnificent falls. In winter, the snow accumulates into a towering arch downstream from the falls. Summer or winter, Pisew Falls will please the eye.

    'Prairie Crocus' - Manitoba Series (Notecard and Photographic Print)

    The prairie crocus, Anemone patens, is Manitoba’s provincial flower. It is one of the very first plants to bloom in the spring and can often be observed covered in hoarfrost or even by a late spring snow. It normally grows singly but can also be found growing in clumps. The pale mauve to dark blue-purplish saucer-shaped blossoms are very efficient in trapping heat from the sun during the early spring period. The prairie crocus is a fine symbol of perseverance on the Canadian Prairie.

    The prairie crocus is a long-lived perennial and individual plants may live for 50 years. Like so many of our native prairie plants, the habitat of the prairie crocus has largely disappeared, being replaced by farms, cities and roads.

    'Flowing Waters' - Manitoba Series (Notecard and Photographic Print)

    Water provides the Earth with the capacity to support life. It covers seventy percent of the earth’s surface but only two and a half percent of that water is freshwater. While three quarters of our freshwater is contained in ice sheets and glaciers, most of that water is inaccessible. Water is one of our greatest resources but we often take it for granted.

    Man is attracted to water and often builds close to it. Besides its life sustaining qualities, water also has the ability to soothe and heal through its mesmerizing, reflective and contemplative qualities. Gazing at the flowing waters of Tulabi Falls in Nopiming Provincial Park for even a brief moment can take you on a personal journey of discovery.
