… have been interesting.
And productive too.
One must look around while waiting impatiently for spring.
Sometimes you miss stuff.
The ice is still very solid and so I went for a walk the other evening around sunset.
The promise of Spring was in the air.
I’ve been busy making photographs of the area around North Bay.
Most of these photos have been posted to Facebook but those who don’t follow me there have an opportunity to see them here.
Many parts of the province of Ontario are spectacular in early July.
This scene was found near Erin.
Sunset Cove on Lake Nipissing has a very “Northern” character – rock, pine, water.
In Summer it is a bit of paradise.
It’s pretty good in the Winter too.
The Lavase River flows into Lake Nipissing and was part of the canoe route to Western Canada.
It’s fun to think that for 150 years, Northwest Company Voyageurs on their way West in large canoes, passed this very spot.
Right now, everyone is waiting impatiently for spring.
One forgets that it was only four short months ago that the last of the flowers were waiting for winter.
When the snow is as deep on the ground as it is now, it’s nice to have this promise from the past.
Spring will come.
Patterns in the snowy bush fit the definition of “Random”.
Early March after some warm weather.
Lake Nipissing is starting to show some wear.
The snow that coated the ice has been knocked down and the shiny spots signaling Spring are appearing.
There is still plenty of ice but six or seven weeks from now there won’t be any.
The ice fishing huts will be disappearing over the next couple of weeks.
Winter fun will end.
Hopes were shaken yesterday when it snowed.
