THE GREAT ICE SHOW, Winnipeg's Winter Wonderland, opened January 25, 2016.The ice sculptures were created by fifty specially trained Chinese ice artisans. Sculptures include life-size dinosaurs, an ice replica of Manitoba’s legislative building, huge sliding toboggan runs, an igloo and dozens of smaller sculptures of various wildlife, etc. The pilot project, The Great Ice Show, is the brainchild of Paul Kostas, the owner of Humphry Inn & Suites, Andy Zhao, general manager at the Hampton Inn by Hilton Winnipeg Airport, and Vivian Jiao of Humphry Inn & Suites. The Great Ice Show will run as long as the ice can be maintained intact. Have a look at some of my images.
The 'Save Our Seine' organization (SOS) is celebrating its 25th anniversary in 2015! To mark this important milestone, SOS is running a series of educational and recreational events and activities highlighting the natural, cultural, and historical features found along the length of the Seine River greenway from the city limits / floodway to the mouth of the river where it enters the Red River. I am honoured to be the first presenter at this series of talks. I will be presenting some of my images made along the Seine River this coming Wednesday evening - EARTH DAY - at the St. Boniface Library (55 Provencher Blvd) in Winnipeg, starting at 7 PM.
