Default Snow Snow and more Snow

Went for a "stroll" through Sibbalds Point a local provincial park.


Picnic Desolation
Nice day for a Picnic


Why walk when you can drive
Thought it was funny, maybe sort of sad, huge park lot of trails and nobody was out of the cars. Just driveing through to see if snow was on the trees I guess.


Ice huts on lake Simcoe and incomming squall


Ice huts in squall
Sort of strange when the light turns a funny greenish, maybe time to head for the car

Nice series, PeterP

A nod to the photog up north!

Especially appealing is your first photo...it begs for a few
folks sitting down at the tables for a leisurely picnic...
in snowmobile suits!



(Kinda reminds of the snow scene in the film, The Last Detail)

I agree : i really do like the first one. ( maybe with a little bit less sky : let's say horizon at 2/3 ? )

Agree with Sergio, Photo #1 wins my vote. And yes a 2/3 horizon might provide a bit more impact. I found the shots of the huts on the ice not as attractive because the huts were too far away to clearly distinguish.

Too True, I agree Too
With the incomming storm, and very recently frozen lake (was open water only a couple of days earlier) I decided descretion was safer and did not head out on the ice.
I'll try again another day

My day long hike was more a test of the camera in cold weather (-10c) and it worked without problems.
Except the battery drained fairly quickly, I went through a couple.
I was also carrying my old EOS film camera and it did not even seem to notice it was cold.
a 2cr5 battery in it lasted the whole day, and is still showing full power.
