Flatlands #2

Winter Solstice

On the flatlands west of Montreal looking towards the south on the winter solstice 2019. The sun doesn’t get very high (this was early afternoon) on this important day of the year. Very strange cloud patterns.

Black Gray Squirrel on White

Looking like a White Christmas

Snowing today and this should stay until Christmas – meanwhile this little guy came to the heated bird bath for a good drink.

For our Euro friends, this black squirrel is actually a gray squirrel. They also come in cream.

Sunset on the St-Lawrence

Last day of November and it’s really getting cold

Sunset on the St-Lawrence river seen from Bertold Park in Baie-D’Urfé. The first ice is forming in the small bay at my feet with a loud and musical chinkling sound as small waves cause the ice fragments to knock together.

A lot of local photographers have been sharing sunset images on Facebook etc – I finally decided to join them and give them a run for their money.

Into the Light

This was originally in glorious e-colour but I somehow thought it would take on something “special” if edited to monochrome – and it did. I shared it on facebook a few days ago and it proved to be one of the most popular images I have posted in a while.

Here is the original:

Ice Petticoats

Getting Colder

Temperatures along the riverside have been up and, mostly, down for a while now. The river has yet to become cold enough to freeze over, but already ice is forming in the splash zone.  Lace petticoats on the rocks.
