highrises at sunset

The posted image, and those in the comment section, are images taken in late January 2019 or during the month of February 2019 which I emailed to my brother to show him what life is like in the City of Winnipeg.

This sunset image was taken looking north towards the highrises at Portage and Main in Winnipeg with the sun reflecting off the glass facade of the TD Tower.

On this particular Saturday night I had gone to the Forks with the hope of hearing the band playing in the structure to the left... playing on instruments created from ice but it was bitterly cold so there just a few people all standing close to the fires to keep warm and there was no music on this Saturday night.

it was cold to start with and that sun dog hanging over the construction worker just made the day feel colder

Another dog on the run on the ice trail trying to keep up with its owner who was riding ahead on a bicycle

I'm freezing just looking at these. I like the framing of the dog on
ice with the dog at the top right of the frame, with his elongated
shadow out in front, to the left.

Marcel Gosselinís (FAR WEST) is an homage to the colonial history of St. Boniface. Placed on the new promenade style walkway suspended in the river forest canopy along Tache this lighthouse reminiscent structure is underpinned by concepts of coming together, spirituality, refuge, and solace.

In 1844, Bishop Provencher of St. Boniface put out the call for those of a religious order who would be willing to travel to the region to educate the young people of his diocese. Four Sisters of the order of the Grey Nuns of Montreal arrived via canoe after a fifty-eight day journey. The light within Gosselinís sculpture recalls how, coming upon the St. Boniface area at 1:00am, the Nuns were guided to the shore of the Red River by the Bishop and his lantern. The floating plates forming the top of the sculpture represent the eight hands of these Nuns in founding, preserving, and protecting the foundational institutions of Saint Boniface.

A CN engine at the tail end of an eastbound freight. I've notice with a lot of the freight trains of late they have either a bright red engine or a red boxcar... like the cabooses of old.

I liked the contrast between the historical lines of Saint Mary's Cathedral and the two towers of True North along with the tower of Manitoba Hydro on the left.

This hut takes the form of the bison, the official animal of the province of Manitoba, and incorporates the glitter of the Golden Boy atop the Manitoba Legislative Building.

An opening in the bottom of the bison hut allows people to climb four steps and go inside, where the walls contain information about the region.

Skylights in the ceiling allow the natural lighting of the space, which accommodates up to seven adults.

I think the skating season on the Mutual Ice Trail has come to an end with all the warming huts including the buffalo having been pulled back to the Forks Harbour ready for storage until next winter's skating season.
