and – 18 C sums up my brief morning walk. I couldn’t help myself today – I just had to get out into the snowy landscape and find something to capture with my camera. Join me for today’s photo essay. Enjoy your Sunday!
What a difference a few days make – after blowing snow and zero visibility Wednesday and Thursday we are rewarded with bright blue sky – a great contrast to snow dusted branches.
High up in the tree a squirrel plays his usual game of “I make myself really flat against the tree branch and that means you can’t see me…”
Boat lifts line the lake shore and don’t add much to the landscape, unless you consider the wonderful shadows they cast on a sunny day like today.
Shadows from small trees lead the eye across the snow.
A small bush low to the ground creates more shadow play.
Who misplaced a bannister? This marks the spot where a steep staircase crafted from large rocks leads to the lake shore.
Nature’s art – a willow hugging the lake shore marks the center of the natural spiral created by the elements.
My study of shadows continues. Three small peaks in a snowy field drew my attention.
Small snowdrifts create an opportunity to study line.
Another interesting pattern created by the wind and drifting snow.
A lone snowmobile rider enjoys his early morning ride. A great way to start Sunday.
