The Assiniboine River 1 flows from west to east with a large meander loop 2 to the north. Below the meander the river is remarkably straight, hugging the south bank of the Assiniboine Spillway the south side of which is more heavily wooded 3 than the north side 4. This is a result of a wetter microclimate on steep north-facing slopes. The photo was taken in the early winter after a light snowfall. Snow—very light-toned—has accumulated more in some places than in others; for example, it is more obvious on a rough field surface in the northwest 5 than over the fields just to the south 6. At this early stage of winter, the Assiniboine is not frozen and appears as a characteristic light tone due to high-suspended sediment content.
