A very creepy snowman from the weekend’s first significant snowfall, Assiniboine Park, Winnipeg.  My personal favourite time of year to shoot.

Winter played an ugly trick on us in Winnipeg.  After a period of warm and sunny spring weather, we woke up to snow and very gusty winds.  Angus was a little irritated by it all, but it didn’t last long and warm temperatures are returning.

The current storm hammering the US Midwest and Eastern seaboard inspired me to post what is common for us hardy Winnipegger’s.   A winter storm from a few days back.

 

Hats off to the snow removal crews, this stairway was cleared just after this shot was taken!

We all know weather in the Canadian Rockies can change at the drop of a hat.  On a very recent trip over a two day period, we arrived to rainy, foggy and overcast skies.  The following day we had a large dumping of very wet snow, temperatures well below freezing, this included power failure and satellite failure in our hotel.  The next day the snow melted and soon after, sunny mid July conditions prevailed, with the temperature approaching 20 Celsius.
