Exploring Manitoba

Despite its rather, um, flat geographical characteristics and propensity for snow in the months of April and May, Manitoba is actually quite a nice place. There. I admitted it.

As a little tribute to the province in which I live, I decided to put together a bunch of photos I've taken at various place in Manitoba. my travels are not too extensive (yet), but this is just a little taste of the wonderful things you can find in the province. During the summer, that is. The winter? That's a whole different story --and a much chillier one...

The Goldfield, landlocked in Riverton

Abandoned house just outside Riverton

Lightning on Lake Winnipeg

I would like to make a side note about the difficulty of photographing lightning. I sat outside in the rain for over two hours, took over 300 shots, and ended up with one that I liked --the one above!

Have you ever visited any of the prairie provinces in Canada? If so, what were some of your favourite places you visited?
