The snowbirds are flying across Canada and this morning was Winnipeg’s turn! Operation Inspiration is to lift Canadians’ spirits during the third month of the COVID-19 pandemic.
It’s been a long 10 weeks since I’ve taken any professional photos. Like many I’m a little down, but this morning I opened up the camera bag and dusted off my equipment. I was so excited I could feel my heart beat! I love anything to do with aircraft as my first “real” photography job was with Bristol Aerospace now Magellan. I made the trek up Winnipeg’s Westview Park better known as Garbage Hill. I soon realized just how out of shape I am!
I just made it up the hill and with in minutes there they were!
The city skyline is East of garbage hill. Shooting towards the city in the morning doesn’t have the best light, and I didn’t think to bring a lens hood. There was a little haze but I made the best of it. The following is one of my favourite shots. I don’t mind the glare, but if you can fix it in photoshop why not!
I’m looking forward to the skyline when the new high rise replaces the crane!
Today is Manitoba’s birthday and what a way to celebrate! #Manitoba150. Thanks to the snowbirds for operation inspiration, it truly inspired me this morning….. feeling better 🙂
