From the Archives – 1 Feb 20

From the Archives

Some weeks, because the weather has been poor, or the artistic skills of the photographer have not risen to the expected dizzy heights … or for some other reason there are few or no new images to share. A perfect opportunity to delve in the archives …

Spring around here is still two to three months away – so, to cheer us all up as we look out on boundless vistas of cold snow, here is a memory of spring 2014.

St-Ives 2019

Great Ouse River, St-Ives

The Quayside in St-Ives, Cambridgeshire on a cloudy day in May with interesting light and clouds.

The bridge from which the picture was taken is a medieval construction built in 1425, later blown up by Cromwell (a son of the town) before being rebuilt in 1716 … during the intervening years a drawbridge connected the two halves. We have morris-danced on the Quayside in years past.

In other words, this bridge is older than Canada.

River in January

Snow on the water

The confluence of the St-Lawrence and Ouatouais Rivers at Ste-Anne-de-Bellevue early in January with a light snowfall obscuring the Ile-aux-Tortes bridge carrying the Trans-Canada Highway. Cold.

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.
