    'Dance Of The Northern Lights' - Manitoba Series (Notecard and Photographic Print)

    The northern lights or Aurora borealis, are amongst the most interesting celestial phenomena to witness. During large solar explosions and flares, great quantities of solar particles are emitted from the sun. When these plasma clouds finally reach the earth and collide with the atmospheric gases encountered from the earth’s atmosphere, the energy released from these collisions is emitted as light particles that we see as the northern lights.

    Generally, the displays of the northern lights are green, but sometimes the resulting light show is blue/violet or red. Auroras not only vary in color, but also in duration, intensity and shape, everything from an arc, band, veil, curtain and corona. Auroras are often seen near midnight but can occur anytime.

    'Lake Winnipeg Dawn' - Manitoba Series (Notecard and Photographic Print)

    Lake Winnipeg is the sixth largest lake in Canada and the eleventh largest on Earth. It is fed by three major rivers: the Saskatchewan River to the west, the Winnipeg River to the east and the Red River to the south. In turn, Lake Winnipeg flows into the Nelson River where it eventually empties into Hudson Bay.

    Along both eastern and western shores, mainly in the southern portions, many cottagers enjoy the beautiful beaches along its shores. In the southwestern section of the lake, the iconic ‘stick piers’ can be seen jutting out into the lake. These piers are unique to the area and are made of local aspen trees that are erected each the spring and taken down again each fall.

    A long exposure enables the crashing waves of Lake Winnipeg to soften as the last light of the setting sun casts a warm glow. A variable neutral density filter was useful in enhancing the sense of motion.

    When it's really windy outside, it's time to head out to Lake Winnipeg and capture waves crashing on the shoreline, especially beautiful at sunset. Hillside Beach. Manitoba

    There is still much to see after the sun has set. As the last light reflects off the shoreline rocks at Hillside Beach, the crashing waves from Lake Winnipeg are softened by the effect of time.
