Season One - Episode 9

Little Limestone Lake with Bridgette Dion
Little Limestone Lake is a majestic turquoise body of water, situated amid unique "karst" (limestone) geology in Manitoba's Interlake Lowland area. The lake visibly changes colour as the calcite inherent in the limestone chemically reacts to the heat of the sun. No other lake in the world displays this characteristic on the scale of Little Limestone Lake. Painter Brigitte Dion spends three days along a beach of the lake. There, amid colour shifting water and the beach's flat white stones, she occupies herself with painting and constructing several playful installations along the shore.
