It is now winter and a new post is long overdue.
I say it is winter but it has not felt like it along the shore of Lake Ontario. Here it is, nearly 2 weeks into January, and so far this winter we’ve only had about 2 inches of snow and temperatures many degrees above average. Today, it has been raining for hours with at least 1.5 inches falling. That is about to change. Temperatures have started to drop and with that we will have freezing rain and then snow.
With a heavy snowfall I find that the birds arrive at my many feeders in droves! Actually I can’t wait to see “who” arrives tomorrow morning!
Today I am going to share something different with you. It is a video that I created with the help of my friend, Debi. It show-cases photos taken “outside my door” and a few from down the road during different seasons. All of the photos are mine, the music was “borrowed” and credited to the maker, and I presented this slideshow at one of our Oshawa Camera Club meetings early in 2015.
Please double-click on the arrow below and enjoy the show! If it doesn’t work, I will repost it!
very nice Jane, especially loved the video…warmest regards….pattt
Thank you, Pat. Happy New Year to you and Barry.
bsolutely lovely pictures. Great shots. Thanks for sharing and Happy New Year.
It’s so kind of you to take the time to comment. Glad you liked the “show”. Have a wonderful 2016.
Hi Jane..a beautiful presentation. I did see this at the OCC meeting but enjoyed it just as much the second time around. …Bonnie
I actually enjoy rewatching it myself! Sometimes I forget how much beauty is around me.
Your video really touches the soul. You are blessed to see the beauty of the world around you the way you do. Thanks for sharing your talent and touching us the way you do.
The music combined with your photos is so soothing and peaceful.
Thank you so much, Gayle, for your encouraging comments. It is somewhat spiritual, isn’t it?
Lovely to watch again Jane -great job! L

Thank you linda. Let’s hope for some clear weather to get some more bird photos.
Just beautiful, Jane, takes me away and great music to go with your great shots.
Thanks so much for sharing
Glad you enjoyed it, Vanessa.
Hi Jane Loved your presentation – all your beautiful photographs and absolutely the right music to go with them.I watched it a couple of times and just drifted off into a lovely peaceful tranquil space.You have many terrific shots and should be very happy with a lovely story. Thank you for sharing, it was a lovely “get away” and makes me realise how much beauty there is around. Vanessa
I agree that it is relaxing. I found the music quite by accident. One day, with some help, I plan to make another one! Thanks for taking the time to share your thoughts.
Hi Jane, Happy New Year!! Thank you for sharing. I did try to post comments on your video…not sure if it worked. Your work is amazing!!!!!! I am sharing it with others.
Feel free to share it! I hope you have a wonderful year.
Hi Jane, Sooooooo beautiful. I’d see one and think, oh that’s my favourite, and then another one would come up that made me oooh and aaaaah again. So many great captures. The hummer feeding with still wings was superb and I love the little red squirrel. He seems to be smiling.
Eveline, I am so happy that you enjoyed it. Even for me it picks up my spirits when I realized how much beauty is around us. As you know, in the country, we have so many opportunities to immerse ourselves in nature!
Hi Jane, Sooooooooooooo beautiful. I’d see one that I thought was my favourite only to see another that I’d ooooh and aaaaaah over, so it’s hard to pick a favourite. Great shot of the hummer feeding with no wing movement. And I love the little red squirrel. S/he looks like he’s smiling. Thanks.
Stunning video! Thanks for sharing.
