    '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.
