Okay, my “Winter Wonderland – Not Quite Black and White” post from December 20th. spoke of the beauty and featured lovely photos of the winter. Now, a month later, I have to say that I am getting really tired of it!
In south-central Ontario, we have had one of the coldest and snowiest winters in many years. Day after day of temperatures well below normal, not to mention high wind chill readings, have made outdoor activities quite unappealing. For the past 24 hours at our farm on Lake Ontario, we have experienced winds in excess of 80 kilometers (50 miles) per hour along with a light snowfall. I’d like to share some “record shots” of what I saw when I found a door that I could open this morning. These photos are certainly not of good enough quality to enter in any of my Oshawa Camera Club competitions but they certainly do “tell a story”…..a story of a winter that is a REAL winter! Today I will sit at the computer or by the fire and do “indoor” things until the winds die down. Then I’ll head out for some bird pictures and yes, a bit of shovelling!
