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.
Having only seen Lake Louise in pictures, I didn’t know what to expect as we pulled into the parking lot of Lake Louise Alberta. Most of the pictures I recalled seeing were taken in the summer of the aqua green lake at the foot of these majestic mountains. Seeing it in the winter on a beautiful sunny day was stunning. Walking out onto the ice provided a view of the mountains you could only get from a boat in the summer. This shoot is a panorama made up of 4 photos stitched together in Photoshop.
This is a follow up to my previous post – Sunrise Surprise. While I still had a few minutes to capture the sunrise I scooted down the shore and found this snow covered cedar with a young tree poking through. It provided an interesting foreground for this shot. Colpoy’s Bay was frozen over but not enough to go out on the ice. What a beautiful way to start the day.
I was in Wiarton Ontario this weekend (about 2 hr’s north of where I live) to take some winter photos. The weather prediction was for overcast skies but I got out early in hopes of at least some good light. To my surprise the clouds opened up at the horizon and allowed for few minutes of a beautiful surprise sunrise. I just got out of the car and was lucky to get this shot before it disappeared.
Later throughout the morning there were a few more times the sun poked through but the rest of the weekend was indeed overcast and actually rainy on Sunday. Despite the weather I think it was a successful weekend and I will share a few more shots in the coming days.
The ice started to break up in Colpoy’s Bay near Wiarton this weekend and the sunset was beautiful!
Taken a few weeks ago in Southampton Ontario. The weather is starting to warm up a little now so hopefully I will be able to bring you a nice sunset shot from this location this summer!
We sure have had our share of snowfall this year! This was taken near Wiarton Ontario. This rock has 2 – 3 feet of snow on it. The trails are very difficult to navigate without snowshoes or skis. I know because I had neither!
