-Outdoor Beauties-

Hello my friends!
On Saturday we went for a drive to Pine Falls, Manitoba to visit our friends.  The day was so beautiful, clear blue skies and bright sunshine adorned the day.

I hope you enjoy the photos that my husband took.  I am joining A Southern Daydreamer for Outdoor Wednesday.
 I am also joining Watery Wednesday.  Check these two memes out, there are some great photos to be seen.

These photos have not been touched up in any way.

These abandoned buildings down a dirt road, caught our eye.

There are seven dams on the Winnipeg River, this is just down from the dam in Pine Falls.  The swift moving water is what has caused the water not to be frozen, otherwise, otherwise there would be no open water at this time of year.

This is the dam itself, hiding in the mist.

Thanks for stopping by, I hope you have enjoyed the photos today.  Hopefully, your weather is not as cold as ours, we have been in the deep freeze for several days.  It's no longer chilly, it is seriously cold now.

Beautiful pictures Cindy - especially the first and third. So blue and white and COLD looking. We are going to be in the really deep freeze by the weekend so I'm not looking forward to it. Stay warm!
Blessings, Pamela

Oh, those are just absolutely gorgeous. You know what strikes me, Cindy? What strikes me is how against that gorgeous snow how blue the sky seems. Some pictures I've seen look dismal and grey, but the sky in Canada is blue against the white. Is that the way it is? I've never been up North during a snow, so I'm not sure.

Thanks for sharing these. They are lovely.

Water as river or puddle or frost;
Water that’s roaming alone and seems lost;
Water that looks like sharp daggers of ice;
Water that’s frozen as small as white rice;
All of this water, no matter where found
Will one day seep back far, far underground
And surface again for fountain and flush—
Water, ah, water, you make things so lush!

I have had time to browse blogs this evening and came across yours via the rabbit trail of Kathie's at Island Sparrow, then Pamela's in New Brunswick and now on to Manitoba!
Lovely winter splendour!
Thank you for sharing!

I live in a tropical country and I always dream of snow. of course it is impossible. I love to experience it once but sure I cannot live in snowy country for long, maybe only a day or two. love all the pics here.. wonderful!

Linda said...

Beautiful wintery photos! Seriously cold here, too! -21 last night, and our power went out (no heat) for four hours...I would love to go somewhere warm for awhile!
