Gimli in the Winter, Jan 11 2015

A day trip up to Gimli, Manitoba in the middle of winter to visit the frozen lake.

Almost everything was shot through Hipstamatic and the iPhone 5S.

The wind blows the snow like sand dunes. Strata.


Great cracks across the frozen Lake Winnipeg have frost crystals growing along the edge.

After 5 minutes on the ice, my phone froze up and shut down. After warming up in the grocery store I was ready to go out on the icy Lake Winnipeg.



The frozen lake ice was about 1-2 feet thick and made creaking sounds randomly. It would go ping like hitting a small bit of metal, and boom, like hitting an empty tanker. Fantastic.

Looks like the surface of the moon, coming in for a landing at Tranquility Base.
