We've developed a bit of a habit of stopping at this small park on our way up to Hecla. It's a very well-kept picnic area on the west side of Lake Winnipeg with a great shoreline, scattered trees, and some cool birds!
The ice is still usually visible on the lake into May. This photo very nicely illustrates the rule of thirds. I like it because it looks like one of those layers of colored sand doodads.
Lots of shades of blue and tan on a clear spring day.
A better look at the rocky shore. I love how the clouds at the horizon look like distant mountains.
