Forms of Water

This is my contribution to the Cosmic Photo Challenge: Solid, liquid and gas prompt.

After two weeks of snow and below normal temperatures there was an obvious choice for this prompt, water in its various forms.

Lens-Artists Photo Challenge: Treasure Hunt
Solid and gas. Ice on a section of frozen marsh at Little Quill Lake, Saskatchewan, Canada in winter. Clouds overhead are part water vapour although at -40° there can be very little water vapour at ground level.
Cee's Fun Foto Challenge: Winter
Solid and gas. Solid in the form of snow and ice on Lake Huron. Gas in the form of the water vapour in the clouds over Chantry Island and its lighthouse, Southampton, Ontario at sunset.
One Word Sunday: Whatchamacallit
Liquid and gas. The water of Colpoy’s Bay on the South Bruce Peninsula, Ontario as the liquid and clouds over the bay as gas in the form of water vapour.
Six Word Saturday: Fishing in the Mist at Sunrise
Liquid and gas. Mist containing water vapour rising up off the water of Colpoy’s Bay on the South Bruce Peninsula, Ontario at sunrise.

Last Light on the Pines

My Throwback Thursday blog post this week is continuing my look back at some of the snow scenes from the early years of my archives.

The last rays of the setting sun illuminating a section of a pine plantation in Hatherton near Nantwich in southern Cheshire, England in the late 1970s.

Here Comes the Holiday Season

This week Ann-Christine gives up the prompt “And Here Comes the Holiday Season” for the Lens-Artists Photo Challenge.

Given the subdued holiday season a lot of people will be having this year I thought I would look back at previous years.

After a couple of rewrites that theme morphed into this post somehow.
