As I've mentioned before, we have had very little snow so far this year. Most of the snowy photos I've posted were taken around Frank's place. He lives a fair bit east of me and much closer to Lake Ontario, so sometimes our weather can vary a bit.
On this day in the latter half of January, we did have a bit of a snowfall. It probably wasn't more than a centimeter but it was enough to transform the landscape briefly. So, come walk with me, willya?
This sweet little sparrow found a perch where the snow had collected the most. You can tell by the beak that she was pecking around in the white fluffy stuff, maybe hoping for a surviving berry or two.
And there were a few of those to be found.
As the sun tickled the tree tops, sparkling laughter lit up the sky and the snow.
Same spot but slightly different angle. I played with the "temperature" for this one.
Shadows sure are long and lean at this time of year. Maybe that's partly why I enjoy walking. I look so much taller and slimmer in shadow. This part of the pond is frozen over but it's still liquid just out of the camera's view.
It's been a strange season. Oak leaves are still falling, here and there. Buds can be seen on some eager plants. And snowflakes add their two cents to the mix.
I'm quite enjoying this mild winter. And I hope you enjoyed our walk.
