Icy bubbles

I am Canadian. I love winter. (sort of) OK, if I MUST endure winter, I will focus on the beauty. My recent obsession is freezing bubbles….

Winter Wonderland Day 2- the ice still cometh

I’m not sure of the exact number of hours we’ve been getting freezing rain here in Eastern Ontario, but I think it’s well over 48 hours now…. we seem to be experiencing a brief reprieve before the forecast calls for more this afternoon. Of course, I went back outside with my camera today….

Well, Lord love a Duck…

I was at the park today, sitting on a bench, a few minutes early for an engagement session, and suddenly I found myself surrounded by ducks.
