Kyle has been killing it on Instagram for forever. His photos will tease your sense of wonder and inspire you to plan your next Manitoba adventure.

There's many reasons why our Manitoba sky is great but the top reason is an obvious one: no matter where you are in the province, there it is ✌🏼️😎 almost like you can reach out and just grab it 👆🏼👋🏼👆🏼@travelmanitoba My favourite place to look up at the sky during the day or night is the beach, what about YOU? #exploremb #travelmanitoba #twinlakesbeach #manitoba #handstand #lakelife #ruralexploration #outdoors #skywatcher #skyviewers #rsa_sky #royalsnappingartists #infamous_family #exklusive_shot #exk_art #transfer_visions #igworldclub #explorecanada #prairiesky #prairieview #vvcmentality #vvcmentality #exploreeverything #exploremanitoba #bestofmanitoba #igmasters #ig_today #phototag_it #cloudshapes

When I was growing up, I was in scouts for 5 years or so. It was during this time I grew to love our prairie sky. Our sunrises and sunsets can challenge our perception of beauty with the way the colours dance in the sky. Last July, I went completely #crazyforshot and found myself constantly #chasinglight I even stayed up all night every Friday that month to capture the early morning sky. This photo was taken July 5th, 2014. There was 8 of us out at #bigwhiteshelllake but when 5:30 rolled around, it was only myself and @joelboily left awake. Still one of my favourite captures of last summer! Stay tuned for more @travelmanitoba challenge entires… #exploremb #travelmanitoba #prairiesky #prairielights #bigwhiteshell #lakelife #manitoba #adventuremanitoba #agameoftones #createcommune #sky_sultans #rsa_light #royalsnappingartists #infamous_family #sunrise_sunsets_aroundworld #sunrise #oh_canada_ #tourcanada #rsa_sky

On June 21st, 2014, I snapped this shot just after 6:00am just outside of Grand Beach, Manitoba from the back of my friend Tyler's jeep doing 100kms/hr. We probably saw nearly 16 hours of daylight that day. A bunch of us headed out to a couple cabins to party with @codypettigrew for his birthday! It was my first time chilling with @djdrux who just happens to be one of Winnipeg's elite DJs which was super dope!! @smains_ had to work in the morning so a few of us ended up pulling an all-nighter. I stayed up all night learning how to lightpaint and I can recall a couple teenagers passing me on the street and one of them saying " what the hell is this retard doing?" I didn't take hearing that lightly I can tell you that 😠. Anyway, here's to #summersolstice2014 🍻 🌅👌🏼 #exploremb #travelmanitoba #manitoba #adventuremanitoba #bestofmanitoba #grandbeach #sunrise #prairiefire #sunrise_sunsets_aroundworld #sunriselovers #sky_sultans #rsa_light #royalsnappingartists #infamous_family #exploremore #explorecanada #createcommune #agameoftones #illgrammers #prairiesky #prairielights #prairielife #naturelovers #transfer_visions #oh_canada_ #tourcanada #rsa_sky

Ryan Dickie (@winterhawk_ig)

Ryan has captured our ❤️ by so wonderfully capturing our heartland. His prairie landscapes always take our breath away.









Trevor Hagan (@wpgphotog)

Trevor’s sky pics capture a vivid intensity, whether from a storm or a sunset. His lightning photo taken at the Manitoba Legislative Building is no joke. It looks like a mad scientist is working inside there — Dr. Frank Albo meet Dr. Frankenstein.


Congratulations, Kyle, Ryan and Trevor, you all win an #ExploreMB Instagram Moments book and are now finalists for our Instagram trip to Churchill!
