January / February 2018 – week 5

Welcome and thank you for joining me on this year’s project of taking/posting photos every day.

This week’s weather continued with large swings in temperature. It started warm, turned cold and then warm again. So, really, typical January weather in my neck of the woods.

Now onto this week’s photos:

January 28 – great reflections; the colours here are natural, no filters. I was so happy that I could capture them on film. It was a great day to walk; the temperatures were quickly rising and the sky was changing minute to minute. I turned around and saw this wonderful light reflected on the stream behind my house…

January 29 – January thaw; you can hardly believe that it is the middle of winter here in Canada with a view like this.

January 30 – abandoned; an old shed and a falling down barn. You see lots of these in my area. It looks so sad, doesn’t it? I often wonder, what is the story – who owned this, why did it fall into disrepair? Do you ever wonder or is it just me?

January 31 – lakeshore ice; at first glance, this looks like icebergs, but it is how the waves, wind & cold formed the ice along the shores of Sandbanks Provincial Park. Beautiful in all seasons.

January at a glance; each month I like share a collage of the month’s photos I like how they look together. Generally, this month, I would say cold!

February 1 – fence post; I love this fence post – I love the vines growing up all around it. I take photos of this post in all seasons.

February 2 – tree at the lakeshore; this is the view from the Lakeshore Lodge area at Sandbanks Provincial Park. This tree is at the edge of the escarpment, about 15 feet above the shoreline. It’s a pretty, but bleak view, and you can see some open water in the distance.

February 3 – winter sun peeking through the big old oak tree. I love how the sun flares as its shining through the branches. It was a beautiful but extremely cold day.

  1. I love old sheds! There is one on the route I take to my piano lessons that I keep meaning to stop and photograph. I also love your fence shots. Beautiful!
