Artist's Description

Location: This was taken early in the morning, at Lockport just north of Winnipeg, Manitoba….HDR enhanced

The locks are in the forefront, where the boats are lowered to continue their journey up the Red to Lake Winnipeg.

Lockport is a small unincorporated community in Manitoba, Canada located just north of the city of Winnipeg. It is the site of ancient agricultural inhabitation, a migratory bird (the North American White Pelican) feeding area as well as a dam and lock of the Red River. The Red River Floodway joins the Red River just down river from the dam. The bridge and locks at Lockport (completed in 1910), submerged the St. Andrews Rapids (a natural bridge) in order to make the Red River navigable both to and from Lake Winnipeg. A small Provincial Park exists in Lockport. It is part of the rural municipalities of St. Andrews west of, and St. Clements east of the Red River. Residents of Lockport include the eagle which can be seen hunting along the Red River.

Lockport is also known for having some of the best fishing in the world to both humans and birds. Specifically, the North Red River running through Lockport is known for some of the best fishing for trophy channel catfish. Lockport is an ancient settlement, predating European history by thousands of years. It is one of the oldest known settlements in Canada.
