Faces of Winter

We’ve never had two weeks of rain in Northern Ontario so close to Christmas. No sun, only dreary skies and rain for what seemed an eternity. A little tease of snow before the rainy days, but today it came. SNOW!

Rain, rain , g0 away

Let winter show its display

Cold, icy splendor


About Olga

I have always had an affinity for artistic endeavors and the beauties of nature. The power of the word combined with photography have become my creative spark.

    Beautiful photos! As much as I don’t like snowy driving conditions, I agree that the winter display is less dreary.

    I would love to have that beautiful haiku express itself literally over here in Melbourne Australia Olga. 41oC today, yesterday 39 tomorrow 36 and all of 7 mm of rain this month. And all that water in those wonderful images.

    It sounds like you had two weeks of typical December Pacific Northwest weather. It’s so depressing, isn’t it? I am happy you finally got some snow and a taste of cold, icy splendor! I would ask you to send some my way but it would just melt by the time it got here. Thank you for sharing the beautiful photos!

      Thank-you, Mary. It was a wonderful experience to have seen and captured the last light of the setting sun. The sun has been hiding its face for quite awhile.

  9. Beautiful images, Olga!!! I managed to go out today to get some snow shots, not many, but some. Last year too much snow, this year not enough. Go figure!!! Let’s hope we both get some more of the white stuff to make stunning images from!!! โค

      Thank-you, Karin. The weather is very unusual this year. Our snow is disappearing with warmer temperatures. Rain for the next few days. Looks like no snow for Christmas.

      Thank-you, Janni. This Christmas day may be a wet surprise. It’s raining now and the snow we got a few days ago when I took the photos is melting fast.Christmas blessings!

    I was going to suggest that we could take some of the rain off your hands…but see a few other Aussies have beaten me to it. It’s not far off heading off for Christaams lunch and a 35 degree Celsius day….and still waiting for rain. Tomorrow is forecast to bring 5-30 mm of rain….believe it when I see it . ๐Ÿ™‚ Merry Christmas

    I didn’t realise you were from Ontario so I thought I would repost a poem about my Grandfather who spent a fair bit of time in Saskatchewan around the turn of the century- the one before last.

      Thank-you, Kat. The small town I live in has a river at its edge and multiple lakes close by. I love photographing reflections on water when the light is right. Appreciate your visiting my posts.

        I try to visit other posts when I receive comments. Sometimes I can barely get through all my email prompts and the reader, but when I receive a comment from someone, I generally hop over to see what you’re up to. I have a river close by, but it is narrow and does not have the expansive vistas that your photos capture. How fortunate you are! ๐Ÿ™‚
