More from our trip in the summer

 An evening take of the Legislative buildings from a couple of days ago.
 Seen doing a flyby of the City Hall, recently.
 Canola field, with Flax in bloom in the background.
 Flax beginning to ripen, with the Canola in the background.
 The railroad crossing to past the slough to the canola field.  There are always power lines in my photos taken along the highways. 
 As we left Winnipeg and headed West there was a cluster of Windmills to be seen. 
 Esplanade Riel is a pedestrian bridge located in Winnipeg, Manitoba. It was named in honour of Louis Riel.
It is a side-spar cable-stayed bridge which spans the Red River connecting downtown Winnipeg with St. Boniface; it is paired with a vehicular bridge, the Provencher Bridge. The bridge includes an architectural composite tower that is prestressed with a cantilevered and stayed semi-circular plaza area at the base of the tower. The plaza provides space for commercial activities and as well as a restaurant.
We have had at least 4 inches of rain over the last few days.  Today is a lovely Autumn day with sunshine.
