Unusual to see this in my town…
Whoever made this mess was not thinking Green!
One Mile Bay is ice free!
But there is still ice hanging around in the main lake.
Perhaps tomorrow it will be gone.
The ice is going out of our lake after a long winter. Last night the effects of warmer temperatures and sunshine along with some rain became evident as the frozen solid skin on the lake broke down.
A light wind moved pans of ice by our place and the tinkling buzz of the pans rubbing gently against each other was gentle music.
The last gasp of winter produces beautiful long crystals of ice that are unique.
Beautiful stuff goes on all the time in the real world. If you blink you miss it…
Walked in the Black Forest yesterday. It is a small area beside the North highway and often forgotten. It was reforested some time ago with red and white pines.
A new lens (17-40 zoom) allows a different perspective from what I have been using up to now. Colours are muted at this time of year so this one looks a bit better in black and white.
We visited Science North last week with our grandkids. Science North has a Butterflyarium. What a neat place to experience some of our most delicate and colourful creatures.
The most harmless of living things and most beautiful!
Recent hopes for the arrival of spring were dashed this morning:
So much for my vow not to shovel snow until next winter!
About a week ago it rained all night and got warm in the morning. Very humid but cold near the ground.
The fog made it interesting.
This was made using three exposures (-1,0,+1) and then combining them using the HDR function in CS5 Photoshop.
This was the situation the other day at the end of One Mile Bay.
What I would like to be open water near the shore is still refrozen from last night and it’s nearly noon!
Also there is snow in tomorrow’s forecast.
Nothing to do but wait, I guess…
One of the few alleyways in our town. It is a well travelled place to get from the parking garage to the Main Street. Many people walk it regularly but don’t seem to notice the interesting bits of art that they pass.
We take so much for granted in our environment that we have learned not to notice.
