Captured in west end of Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada.

The watermill known as Grant’s Old Mill occupies the site of the Red River Settlement’s first mill built in 1829.

It was established by Cuthbert Grant, leader of the Metis at the Battle of Seven Oaks. Grant’s Old Mill is open to the public and provides a glimpse of a real working water powered mill. Organic grain grown locally, freshly ground triticale, rye, whole wheat, buckwheat flour and pancake mix, as well as other souvenirs, are sold on site. The area surrounding Grant’s Old Mill is perfect for picnics or just enjoying the sun.

Camera Details: Canon EOS Digital Rebel XTi, 55mm Lens, Aperture exp 5.6, Shutter speed 1/400, ISO 200

    Wow, very nice Larry. Love your POV. The bushes and trees were always blocking the view when I was there. Did they cut something out?

  • Thanks Teresa
    Actually Sturgeon Creek is very high right now, what with all the rain we have been having..I was able to get into the reeds, as I had my rubber boots in the car, however I did cut about 10% from the bottom in this image
