October Squares: A Variety of Lines at -40 degrees

This is my contribution to day 19 of Becky’s October Squares: Lines photo challenge.

Lines of cloud, a horizon line and reeds forming lines. A frozen section of marsh at Little Quill Lake, Saskatchewan, Canada in the winter.

For anyone wondering if it was -40° Celsius or Fahrenheit it was both as they are the same at -40.

Friendly Friday: Remote.

This is my contribution to the Friendly Friday Photo Challenge: Remote.

My first thought was of some of the remote spots I visited when living in Saskatchewan, Canada in late 1990s. I once had the passenger side front wheel of my truck disappear into a hole at a water level control connecting Little Quill Lake and Middle Quill Lake. It was at the end of several miles of rough track that stopped at the water control point. I had to pile rocks in the back of the truck to get the rear wheel on the ground and the front wheel out of the hole.

Another time at a section of Little Quill Lake I managed to lock my keys in the truck and had to break into it with an old piece of barbed wire that I had stripped the barbs off.

Here’s a photo of a sunset over a marsh at Little Quill Lake. It was winter so I was probably the only person within 10 miles and it was -40° at the time.

July Squares: Ice Blue at -40 degrees.

Just in case anyone is wondering if that’s -40° Celsius or Fahrenheit, it’s both. When you get down to -40° it’s the same.

I picked this shot because this part of Ontario is under a heat warning with temperatures in the 30s with the humidity making it feel like the 40s.
