Thinking about Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Winter Scenes it occurred to me that it’s now 20 years since I moved to Ontario. So I decided to limit myself to photos of winter in Ontario.
2004. Chantry Island and its lighthouse at sunset with frazil ice on Lake Huron in the foreground.
2008. Chantry Island at sunset with a frozen and partially snow covered Lake Huron in the foreground. I’m not sure if I was standing on the shoreline or the frozen lake when I took the photo.
2012. Snow on a Pine tree branch.
2018. A frozen and partially snow covered Colpoy’s Bay at sunrise with the Niagara Escarpment on the horizon.
Spotted on a walk last Tuesday afternoon. It had been sunny most of the day until I had a chance to go for a walk with the camera when it started clouding over.
I think that the snow had got warm enough in the sun to start thawing and then the water was freezing as it ran down to the tips of the branches. I don’t know why the tips of a couple of the icicles are crooked.
There wasn’t many photos to pick from for week 45. I didn’t have much time to get out with a camera due to a variety of issues.
I managed to get for a walk on Saturday afternoon after the snow had stopped. I wasn’t many yards into the walk when I spotted a leaf trapped in the snow that was trapped in Pine needles. I couldn’t tell if the leaf had been caught in the Pine needles before the snow settled or if it was caught in the snow.
I tried a few different compositions and initially used a different version in this post before changing it for this one.
