The year is coming to an end. Time to reflect on what has passed and plan for what is to come. Some say just one day at time. It is true that’s all we can do – but without reflecting on the past and looking to the future I think every day would be the same!
This morning I was checking emails and all of a sudden a blank screen. Outside it was raining and the ice was accumulating on the ground, trees, and hydro lines. The result was power was off for the majority of the day. Once the rain stopped I got out and took a few pictures.

I was out this morning taking pictures in the dull grey foggy weather. Why? I took a challenge from Shannon at SeeingSpots Photography http://seeingspotsphoto.wordpress.com/ to get out and take a winter, cold and snowy picture and submit it to be posted in a gallery of photos on her web site. Today was the deadline so out I went. It was great to get out since it has been a while since my last outing.
This is one of the shots I took today but not the one I submitted. I will link to it once Shannon has the gallery posted. Even though it was a pretty dull day – with a little creative additions I’m pleased with how it turned out.
Remains of the Past
Flywheel spinning through Time
Looking to the Future
Particles spinning in Time
This Flywheel on the shores of Colpoy’s Bay in the village of Colpoy’s is pretty much all that is left of Whicher’s Sawmill. Want to learn more check out this link. http://postcard.wiarton.ca/bay5.html
I don’t think maximum capacity has been reached!
I haven’t had a chance to get out and take any winter shots yet so here is one from this summer. At this time of year when we are rushing around getting ready for Christmas it is nice to have a peaceful image to rest your eyes on.
This bike was outside a little shop in New York City. I love the colours and fun watermelon looking wheels!
