20160128 Some nice lighting on Jan 19

We had some interesting sunlight illuminating snowy scenes lately.  Some examples:

P1740714-1-2

 

Midday light:

P1740804-1

As the afternoon progressed the light had an orange tint …

P1740810-1

Probably because of the reflection off of the orange coloured clouds:

P1740819-1

… giving  an interesting glow to the quartering backlit landscape.

P1740826-1-2

… with even more dramatic colouration when directly backlit:

P1740838-1

(Yes, the above is worth clicking on a couple times to see the sparkling nature of the ice on those branches.  Use your brower “back” button to return to this blog.)

… ending up with a gentle reflection off of the snow:

P1740970-1-4

…. or screened by this oft-photographed clump of tamaracks on Shebeshekong Road on the Shawanaga FN Reserve.

P1740984-1

… and in the evening the scattering of moonlight by the ice particles in thin clouds provided this glimpse of a lunar corona:

P1750025-1-4

It is always amazing, eh?
