Rural Manitoba, Winnipeg
Get outside the city and see the prairie. The fields stretch for as far as the eye can see.
Fondest memory: The best thing about Winnipeg is the time from May to September. The city is alive with events, the lakes are nearby and the snow is gone.
Favorite thing: Most of my pictures are taken in the Winter as my summers at home on the farm were spent working on my parents Strawberry, Raspberry and Saskatoon farm. They also had beef cattle and a section of cereal crops. Then because they had so much free time on their hands, Mom started making Jam.
Favorite thing: Some people have asked, and yes, we really do have big yellow school busses. They're cold in the winter, hot in the summer, and always seem to have a lingering smell of sweaty teen aged boy, but it was how I got to school every day for 14 years.
This snow bank was after a freak snow storm in April of 1997. The storm was a contributing factor in the 'Flood of the Century' which also hit Fargo North Dakota in the States
Fondest memory: This is near Notre Dame de Lourdes, the nearest town to where our farm is.
Favorite thing: The Babcok Valley near where I grew up. It's an area peopled with hippies who moved there in the 60's to live off of the land. Great people, and a wonderful artisan comnunity there too.
Favorite thing: The Canadian prairies are known for spectacular sunsets. There is no shortage of horizon in these flatlands, so there is always an unobstructed view.
