SkyWatch Friday - Cartier, Manitoba, Canada - Hello, Spring?

 
I had hoped to get out of the neighbourhood and into some different scenery, but it didn't happen.  So, it's another photo of the backyard.   If you look closely, you can see a distinct line near the bottom of the big tree on the left.  That line was left by the Assiniboine River Flood - 2011.   All of the trees in our yard (and those of our neighbours) have similar markings.  The water was at that level for 5 months!!!   Luckily our house had some flood proofing done, so most of the damage occurred in the yard and driveway.  Anyway,  I could go on about that flood for days, but I'll leave it there.  

Perhaps next week I'll actually leave the yard to take a photo.  ;)

SkyWatch Friday - Cartier, Manitoba, Canada - The Neverending Winter

 
More trees, more sky, more textures. I love living in the middle of the forest, but after seeing these same trees every day for years, I don't find them all that interesting. So, I've been trying out some new-to-me textures to change the look of them and perhaps make them more appealing.  A bit heavy-handed perhaps, but at least it's different.     

Next Friday, I'm going to try to get out of the neighbourhood and photograph another piece of our huge Canadian sky.
