Winterpeg.

A blizzard doesn’t arrive with the surprise that it used to. Watching the radar, murmurs of what may be coming are uttered from the lips of weather reporters and citizens alike. Parking bans are set on city streets, pantries are stocked, and commuters set their alarm clocks a little earlier than usual in hope that they will be able to get to work at all.

When the rumoured weather does arrive, there are two choices: seek shelter, or step out into the storm. Personally,…

Autumn Meets Winter – a postcard from Waterton.

West to Waterton and beyond.”  This phrase has been written on my fridge in colorful magnetic letters ever since I first visited Waterton Lakes National Park three years ago, and I have returned every year since.

Every time I return to this special piece of land it is spectacular in a different way.  Being much more off the beaten path than Canada’s other mountain parks, it has a calmness and wilderness factor that makes for vastly different experiences…

Frozen at Lake Winnipeg.

I am not a bird that flies south.  Rather, a winter escape for me is to leave dirty city streets behind and seek out a spot where the snow is still pure white.  This year, the escape was to a cozy cabin on the blank canvas that is Lake Winnipeg.…

    It was so cold that night you went up to Hecla, but the shot at the lighthouse was worth it. How beautiful!ReplyCancel

    Love your visual stories. That last shot is awesome. Very reminiscent of Paul Zizka.ReplyCancel

    I’m glad you both like that last one! It was really cold Karyn…but we worked up enough of a sweat schlubbing through the snow drifts that we were fine!ReplyCancel

The road to California – Part 6: Familiar territory.

(continued from Part 5: Coast)

Covering so many miles, seeing so many new things, constantly exploring places you didn’t know existed…a road trip is certainly an adventure.  Like all good adventures though, the rewards come with an exhaustion that slowly builds up.  There is a sort of comfort in the familiar; a quiet sense of permission that it’s ok to relax – that you don’t need to constantly be active.  Coming full circle and now retracing our…

The road to California – Part 2: Mountains.

(continued from Part 1: Prairie)

Approaching the mountains from the prairie is a unique experience.  Your map tells you that you’re getting close, but after so many hours of seeing field after field drift by it is a bit hard to believe.  Then you begin to see something on the horizon.  Of course you question whether your eyes are just playing tricks on you, but there is a seed of hope that it is more than that.  Once past the doubt, excitement begins to set in…

Snowfall Wallpaper


Snowfall Wallpaper

The sky is falling! No, not really. Just some wet spring snow has been falling on the city of late. However, it wouldn’t be too far-fetched to imagine that to someone who has never really experienced snow it just might feel that way.

Winter can be a long season and, though there are days I find myself daydreaming of feeling the suns warmth again, I really do appreciate the change of seasons. I don’t think it is just the artist in me that says snow is …
