Photos of the Year — Wayne Glowacki 2012

Photographer's Choice: Shadows of winter — 
During the record-breaking mild temperatures last winter, the Free Press photo department received constant requests to illustrate weather stories. The story this day was the lack of snow on the ground. I was at The Forks when I received the assignment, so I headed down to the River Walk. I noticed several geese swimming in some open water on the Assiniboine River below the Main Street Bridge and took some pictures. Then I thought the angle from the bridge might make the photo more interesting, so I went up on the bridge to take a look. It wasn’t any better. But the long shadows produced by the people passing below me along a section of the shore devoid of snow went together with the story well, I thought.
