February has come and is leaving pretty quick. A couple more weeks and we might see signs of spring. (Ever the optimists we are!)
February gave us Festival du Voyageur and freezing temperatures, while the Winnipeg Jets have given fans a case of heartburn with their recent on-ice performances.
In all, our photographers were out and about capturing what February had to offer them. Here are some of the best and most interesting from the month.

Craig Ramsay and Catherine Wreford Ledlow, playing Lord and Lady Capulet in the Royal Winnipeg Ballet's production of Romeo & Juliet. Craig and Catherine are lifelong friends and have developed a strong bond between each other. Both well-known Broadway stars, began their careers together as students 20 years ago at the RWB. It's notably their first time performing onstage together. Adding to the intensity between them is how Catherine is living with terminal brain cancer, which gives their relationship even deeper resonance, and even urgency. JOHN WOODS / WINNIPEG FREE PRESS
