Winter Cold Snap

DOL-A6F5A2993-2


DOL-A6F5A2989-2

Looking across the Lake Ontario towards New York State.  The ice pack extends quite a ways from shore.  I took this shot as far out on the pack ice that I felt comfortable walking and slip/sliding on.


DOL-A6F5A3014-2


Within Wellington Bay, you can see how the wind whips across the ice.  Midway in the photo and just left of centre are a number trumpeter and tundra swans.   They appear motionless and I fear many will/have succumb/ed to the harsh weather.

Stay warm my friends.

Hope you are keeping warm. These shots are wonderful! Hope this cold and ice does not continue much longer for you people east of us.

These are really beautiful photos! I love the colours of the sky, ice and water and it sure looks cold. I feel sorry for the birds and animals during this cold snap.

These are beautiful photos and you were brave to walk out onto the ice. It is a hard time for outdoor animals.

These are really beautiful, Daniel.
Stay warm and safe in this cold.

I certainly get the icy feeling from these photos.

Beautiful photos Daniel and I love the lighthouse out there on the ice. I wonder how the birds and wildlife survive this cold weather.

These are stunning shots, Daniel. As are those in the past several posts. I've been catching up .. satellite has been painfully slow the past several days. Must be ice/snow. But it's picking up a bit today and I'm glad I stopped by.

Burrrr that really does look cold. Love the lighthouse photo. Very unique with the frozen water.
