“Every moment is a golden one for him who has the vision to recognize it as such” ~ Henry Miller
On the weekend, I spent some time with a friend in the town of Ajax. It's situated east of Toronto and touches the shores of Lake Ontario. The weather has been crazy for the past couple of weeks, alternating between rain, snow and balmy thaws. We've experienced some of each over the past several days.
On Saturday, it rained rather heavily but as the evening progressed, the temperatures dropped and rainy windows iced over. The golden colour is from the streetlamp in the condo parking lot.
It snowed overnight and temperatures were bitter cold. It was overcast and windy through much of the following day but just as it was coming to a close, the clouds parted just enough for a lovely sunset. We decided to take a walk by the lake. The couple watching the calm waters of Lake Ontario are my friend's daughter and her boyfriend.
As the sun continued its descent, the icy paths were lit with golden sunlight. Had it been a warmer day, those benches might have been more inviting.
If you take a look at the far left of this photo, you can see the C.N. Tower presiding over the chilly waters.
I'll bring you back this way again in a few days. Be sure to bundle up. There's no telling what the weather might be like.
