Autumn in Winnipeg

fall-59

Change is a measure of time and in the autumn, time seems speeded up. What was is not and never again will be; what is is change.
– Edwin Way Teale

“Autumn burned brightly, a running flame through the mountains, a torch flung to the trees.”

Autumn is the mellower season, and what we lose in flowers we more than gain in fruits.  ~Samuel Butler

The recent Philippine disasters were a great testament of how much our climate is changing and will continue to change if we don’t start doing something about it.

Gorge Creek Trail

GorgeCreek-1

Here are some of the photos from the gorge creek trail at riding mountain. The experiences we had from the trail was unforgettable. Above is a photo of a mama bear paw. It was really big and there were little ones beside it which we assumed to be baby black bears. It was really a fresh trail when we saw it, we were both amazed and frightened at the same time. Below are some of my macro shots. Please enjoy, comment and rate. Thanks 😀

Thunderstorm Fun

greenhill sunset05-2After the second annual UMsigaw Picnic, we stayed for a few hours more at Assiniboine Park to relax and talk. At least my friends talked and relaxed. I was having fun too; experimenting, practicing, and learning marcro photography. I took pictures of my shoes and spiders.

My crazy day didn’t stop there, after we dropped off some of our things in my house, the clouds started to look a bit crazy but amazing to photograph. I hesitated at first to stop and take pictures because I didn’t want to delay any plans we have that night. But then my friend Angelique suggested that we should stop to take pictures because she said these things only happen a few times a year. After hearing this, I rushed towards the greenhill to take advantage of the beautiful sunset and cloud formation of the thunderstorm. Please click on the thumbnail for a larger preview. Also, please rate and comment and let me know what you think. Thanks ^__^
