    This year, in 2017, Canada celebrates its 150th anniversary as a country. Join me this coming Friday, January 27 at 7 PM as I illustrate some of this country's prime landscape destinations as well as discuss some of my favorite images. I understand that attendance for this event is near capacity but, if you really want to come and see it, call Photo Central at 204-774-4343 and ask to be included on the waiting list. Invariably, there are always some folks who can't attend an event at the last minute for various reasons. See you Friday evening!


    Photo Central is situated at 957 Portage Ave, Winnipeg, Manitoba.

    Canada, across from DeLuca's.

    As one year draws to an end, another is just about to begin. I managed to get out photographing a few times in the last 10 days or so, albeit during the coldest stretch of winter to date. I travelled to Lake Winnipeg at Victoria Beach on one occasion, the open prairie around Lorette and Grande Pointe on another, Birds Hill Provincial Park on a third occasion and finally, Sandilands Provincial Forest on the final one where I made this image of the sun setting through jack pine trees. It was bitterly cold with temperatures hovering around minus 30 degrees Celsius. With a cutting breeze, the windchill dropped the temperature to around minus 40 degrees Celsius. I was toasty warm walking through the forest except for my face and hands. I have yet to find a balaclava to work well with with glasses (I now have three of them including a very expensive one). I managed to keep the fingers from freezing but I had accidentally left the thinner silk gloves in my other winter coat; I normally slip these thinner silk gloves into a slightly thicker pair when temperatures are extreme.

    I love the silence at this time of year! I thought this image was fitting for the coming festive season.


    Wishing you Happy Holidays and All The Best for 2017 !

    I first saw this iceberg the day before and photographed it from the shoreline near Eastport, Newfoundland in the afternoon as well as later that same evening and then again the following morning at dawn. On my return to a local B&B for breakfast, my traveling companion and I made one more stop to have a look at this amazing iceberg. Living on the prairies, I don't see these every day! As I was composing the first image, I suddenly heard a very loud CRACK and I told my buddy "Get ready, it's coming down"! A few seconds later, the iceberg began to tilt to the left and proceeded to crumble during the span of less than three minute as I captured this sequence of images of an event that I was indeed privileged to witness. Only days earlier, I had been much too close to other large icebergs floating in the Atlantic Ocean. Because most of the mass of an iceberg is actually under the water and not visible, a tidal wave could easily cause you to overturn and drown should your boat be too close. Life is always full of unexpected events!

    Some people call them caves but most are really just huge cracks in the limestone bedrock. This large crack was found alongside Lake Winnipeg near Pine Dock, MB and was covered with moss. It towered 4-5 meters and was at least 20 meters deep. It is similar to the cracks and fissures found along Clearwater Lake in Clearwater Lake Provincial Park. It is part of a larger system that I plan to explore next summer.
