January Squares: Streetlights

This is my contribution to day five of Becky’s January Squares: Light photo challenge.

This is Berford Street in Wiarton on the South Bruce Peninsula, Ontario, Canada approximately 45 minutes before sunrise just before Christmas. There’s quite a few different light sources with the various lights down the street.

I thought I should get a shot while the Christmas lights were still on the lampposts. I noticed that parts of some of the Christmas lights had been knocked off, by vehicles presumably.

I suspect parcel delivery vans. Thinking about your nautical comment, it is only about a block away from the end of Colpoy’s Bay and the old railway station where I would guess, goods were transferred between the trains and freighters sailing north to the communities further up the peninsula and the northern shore of Lake Huron.

Thanks, it wasn’t that cold if I remember correctly, probably just a degree or so below freezing. We’ve only had one or two cold nights so far this winter, most of the time we’ve been several degrees above average for the time of year.

Only a Canadian could call those temperatures ‘not so cold’. But worrying warm for your part of the world, I am imagining those polar ice caps melting.

I was only thinking yesterday that with all the thaws we’ve had this winter there’s no snow banks along the sides of the roads this winter. Some winters by this time you’re having to creep out of road junctions because you can’t see over the snow banks the ploughs have created.

Thanks Victoria. I thought it was a good representation of our winter so far with mild spells and thawing. The reflections of the lights in the wet highway add to the atmosphere.
