Spring From Roy’s Rock

The North shore of Lake Nipissing in late March.

Saint Joseph’s Motherhouse in the background.

Another two or three weeks may see the Lake ice-free.

Late winter snow and shadows.

Undulations

Late in Winter the snow that has fallen covers objects on the ground in a way that creates a very sensual surface.

Long shadows late in the day contribute to the effect.

The Trails Behind My House

The area behind my house is mostly rock and undeveloped bush. At a time long in the past we would have been situated on an island, but when the glaciers melted and the lake drained, the island ended up connected with the mainland by a low-lying piece of land. A twenty foot rise in water level would put us back on an island again.

In “recent” years, recreational walking trails have developed and lately a map and signs have appeared. Winter, and the advent of “snowshoeing” as a recreational activity have made walking these trails a fun thing to do. They become packed hard enough that snowshoes are not required much of the time. If one wishes to set off through the bush off the trail, then snowshoes are a necessity but a pleasant trek through the bush can be had without them. The absence of leaves makes it possible to see some of the features of the area.

Opportunities for photographs are numerous.

Sharing the experience of the trails is particularly special.

Sunny Day Birches

I love the shape and colour of a birch tree and a birch grove.

Particularly when the sun shines on them.

Edge Of The Bush

On the edge of the bush the snowflakes pile up on the ground.

Deeper inside a canopy of snow is created.

Delicate Snowstorm

No wind.

Just large snowflakes in profusion.

The leaves of last Summer will remain until Spring.

To be replaced by new life.

Winter On Four Mile Bay

When Trout Lake freezes, the ice becomes a highway for recreational vehicles.

The tracks they leave differ from the tracks of summer.

Storm Happening

A wild flurry of activity engulfs a calm collection of buildings and trees.

Quiet In The Forest

A recent all day snowfall reminds me why one lives in the North.

It is fashionable among many to “hate” snow and wish it gone.

I find it impossible to align their thinking with the calm and delicacy I see here.

Reminder Of What Was

Last Summer was busy and vibrant with greenery and flowers.

Evidence of this is still with us.
