February 2018 – week 8

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

This week’s weather has been quite warm for this time of year. Lots of rain and melting, which has caused flooding problems from ice jams all over Southern Ontario. Even our little creek, was close to pouring over the drive, rather than flowing under it

Now onto this week’s photos:

February 18 – snowy fence line; I love the jumbled up look of the bare trees in this little bush along side of the county road. There is some sort of trail/road/path here, but it is quite overgrown, even with all the leaves gone and hard to see.

February 19 – ice formations on the rock-cut; caused by spring water filtering through the rock. A lot of the ice has melted here, especially in the middle of the shot, however it is still very impressive!

February 20 – reflections on the melting pond ice. This is a local conservation park. I had to be very careful not to step onto the softening ice. It was very difficult to see where the land stopped and the pond began under a thick cover of snow!

February 21 – changing weather; the day started with beautiful blue skies, but rain was predicted and you can see the clouds quickly approaching. I barely made it back to the car before getting very wet.

February 22 – every sunrise means a new beginning. This is my street corner as I leave for work each day. It has been grey & overcast for many days, so this glimpse of the rising sun was extra special. The clouds kept coming and the sun was hidden for the rest of the day within minutes of this photo, which makes this image even more special.

February 23 – sunset; evidence of longer days. The clouds finally moved out late in the afternoon. I am so happy to be driving to and from work in daylight hours again! This view just drew me to the side of the highway to take a shot. The water here is just a very big puddle from rain & melting snow, that will be gone soon.

February 24 – winter garden art; with all the recent melting, you can still find lots of snow about, mostly where it drifted in…this pretty garden looks pretty in all seasons.
