Winnipeg skyline at night


The Canadian Museum for Human Rights and Esplanade Riel Bridge reflection in Winnipeg’s Red River.


Vancouver skyline and Coal Harbour from Stanley Park.

Handheld shot of Vancouver skyline and Coal Harbour Marina from a recent roadtrip.  Thankfully we visited Stanley Park on the way to Pacific Rim National Park.  On the return my Canon 5D Mark II had a shutter failure (Err 30) requiring me to have it repaired by Canon Canada.  If I remember correctly the 5D shutter rates at 100,000 cycles, mine had approximately 20,000 a little disappointing as it is my workhorse camera.

Winnipeg winter photos: A personal top ten list

Cold morning sunrise, I can still feel or rather not feel my frozen fingers.

My own personal favorites of Winnipeg winter shots.  Purely subjective, of course, because often there is more behind an image than can be seen by the viewer.  In no particular order, but since winter has officially arrived on the Canadian Prairies it seemed fitting.  Today is the first real snow day, the kind where you shovel your walk/driveway and an hour later it has blown back in, looking like you had not shoveled at all.

Portrait of my wife, now you know why I included the disclaimer, “in no particular order”.

Freeze up on the Assiniboine River

And just to be fair, Freeze up on the Red River.  Technically just north of the city.
