As I head off for a week of warm Miami Beach weather, I’m taking a moment to appreciate our beautiful Manitoba winters. Yes, it’s ridiculously cold sometimes, but as we’ve seen this year, it can also be wonderfully warm (for winter). The varying temperatures and wind work to shape the snow… to bring us stunning hoarfrost and to wow us with layers of ice. Early morning or evening walks can be magical when big fluffy flakes are falling, and the air can be so very crisp and fresh. Yes, winter can be a trying season, but it also brings a quiet, chilly beauty that no other season can.
It was a chilly morning in October; so cold that steam was rising off the lake. Canadian geese floated amongst the mist, and colourful fall leaves created a beautiful contrast against the cool, cold water. It was a morning made for photographers, for wandering along the shore and for freezing fingers on camera buttons.
These four photos are now for sale on Crated. I hope that through these images, you feel the magic too.
This past weekend, along with my husband Rob, I had the chance to attend a portion of The Carl Dair Typography Workshops in Winnipeg, hosted by GDC Manitoba. World-renowned typographer Rod McDonald, and Patrick Griffin of Canada Type were on hand to facilitate the workshop and share some of their extensive typographic knowledge. The weekend (October 17-19, 2014) consisted of a free lecture on Friday night, and then a full two-day workshop on Saturday and Sunday which was part lecture and part expert critique.
