    '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.

    'Whiteshell Provincial Park' - Manitoba Series (Notecard and Photographic Print)

    The Canadian Shield, nearly four billion years old, covers the eastern and northern part of Manitoba. Along the Ontario border to the southeast of the province is located Whiteshell Provincial Park. It is an area of many lakes, rivers, forests and wildlife. In fact, Manitoba is known as the land of 100,000 lakes.

    The area is also highly prized as cottage country where folks relax and enjoy hiking, canoeing, boating and winter sports. As summer progresses and the air cools in the evenings, the warmer waters dissipate fog that rises golden in the morning sun, creating a most serene and peaceful place.

    'Canadian Museum For Human Rights' - Manitoba Series (Notecard and Photographic Print)

    The Canadian Museum For Human Rights finally opened to the public today on September 20, 2014!

    The Canadian Museum for Human Rights is an architectural wonder designed by American architect Antoine Predock. He was inspired by Canadian landscapes such as the vast prairie skies, northern lights, snow and ice, as well as Canadian cultures, including Indigenous cultures. The form of the building was also influenced by images of icebergs, tree roots and out-stretched wings. This national and international destination was established to explore the issue of human rights, focusing on the evolution, celebration and future of human rights. The Museum was built in Winnipeg, Manitoba, the first such national museum to be built outside the National Capital Region in nearly half a century. A Canadian postage stamp was issued to commemorate the opening of the Museum in September of 2014.

    PS: I was fortunate to be commissioned to produce the 'two' images on the postage stamp, including the images for the First Day Issue Envelope and the stamp Booklet.

    'Winnipeg Skyline at Sunrise' - Manitoba Series (Notecard and Photographic Print)

    "The Winnipeg skyline, seen from the east, features two iconic architectural structures: the Canadian Museum For Human Rights, designed by American architect Antoine Predock and the Esplanade Riel pedestrian bridge designed by Winnipeg architect Étienne Gaboury. The bridge crosses the Red River and connects downtown Winnipeg and Saint-Boniface, Canada’s largest French speaking community beyond Quebec.

    The ‘Belt of Venus’, an atmospheric phenomenon seen just before sunrise or after sunset, glows bright pink above the darker blue layer known as the ‘Earth’s Shadow’. This pink glow, also known as an ‘anti-twilight arch’, extends some 10-20 degrees above the horizon and is caused by a backscattering of reddish light from the rising or setting sun".
