So far this year we are experiencing typical Canadian yoyo weather patterns with bone chilling cold to mild spells.
With the recent shot of mild weather and rain we had the ice break up with large chunks deposited on the river banks.
Here we have a nice pile of ice at the dam in St. Jacobs.
During a misty morning walk I found this interesting tree in the middle of a pond.
The same trail becomes a new adventure with the ever changing weather!
When we go for a walk around the village I like to take my camera with me. It makes me more aware of my environment because I am on the lookout for things to take a photo of.
I found this little house in a garden we were passing by. I loved its whimsical look and just had to take a shot.

As the sun dipped below the horizon the sky danced with colour!
On Sunday I went for a bike ride down the trail along the Conestogo River south of St. Jacobs and came across this guy standing watch on the other side of the river. They are usually pretty skittish and fly away at the first sight of a human but he was content to stay put while I took his portrait.
This is a common site on a Sunday morning in the countryside around St. Jacobs where I live. St. Jacobs is often referred to as “Mennonite Country”.
I spent an evening this week with a few new photography friends taking pictures of the St. Jacobs Dam. It’s always interesting to experiment with different settings while taking shots of waterfalls and flowing water.
