I’ve spent the past couple days in Winnipeg. I’ve always loved the way this city embraces the winter months. The extreme cold is no reason to be a sad butt who stays inside all of the time. Take a lesson from a Pegger, throw on your warmest wool socks and get out there and have some fun!

Ending January with some crazy cold weather. I’m not even angry about the frigid temperatures when it comes with light like this.

"Wet Cold" in Toronto

I'm super excited that we are finally getting some winter weather here in Toronto. Lots of snow and temperatures below zero. FINALLY! It makes me feel like I'm back home in Manitoba. I've been shooting more often to enjoy this winter weather. Here are some images from these walk-abouts.

Disclaimer: not all of these images are winter related! I'm mostly using this opportunity to post some images I haven't had a chance to share. ENJOY :)

Crokicurl: The Most Winnipeg Thing EVER?

Do you have the rocks to throw down in the octagon? Will you have what it takes to pass your opponents guard? Can you land the hammer right on the button?  No, no, I'm not talking about the UFC. I'm talking about the newest winter sport in Winnipeg. Crokinole and Curling collide to create possibly the most Winnipeg game of all time, Crokicurl! I had a chance to chat with the Principle Architect of Crokicurl, Liz Wreford, about her inspiration for the game and how to play.

"We've heard people say this is the most Winnipeg thing ever, so for us to be part of that is amazing!"

I pulled together this quick little feature on the new sport for Global Winnipeg. Hope you enjoy. Link to the Global Winnipeg article can be found HERE.

Looking to test your skills in the octagon? Head down to The Forks to try Crokicurl out for yourself. Best of all it is FREE! :)

Red River Ice Flows

As temperatures grow colder by the day, I thought it would be appropriate to share something I shot back in 2015. It's daunting to think that we are about to take on another winter here in Winnipeg. The Red River is beginning to slow down and get choked out by ice flowing downstream. Soon the water flowing alongside the muddy banks of The Red will be frozen in place. Winter can feel like the season that lasts forever.

Let this video be a reminder that there will be an end to these frigid months. Winter will eventually release its icy grip on Manitoba. The ice and snow that blankets the Red River will give way to flowing waters once again.
