A Farewell to Winter?

Despite Spring's official arrival, it still looking a lot like winter out my window - plenty of snow on the ground with more looming in the forecast (here's hoping that the weather forecasters maintain their high probability of being wrong).

So in honour of the snow that still blankets my little corner of the planet, here's today's photograph.

Below is an image of the Old Pinawa hydro dam in Pinawa, Manitoba, Canada, in winter, photographed with my Minolta maxxum 7 on Ilford hp400 film. The Old Pinawa Dam has been out of use since 1951 and is now part of a magnificent heritage park on the Winnipeg River, about an hour northeast of Winnipeg.


Later,
Craig

Winnipeg looks beautiful, but a little too cold for me! Love your photos.

That's a very dramatic shot. The monochrome makes it even classier.
