20170112 Winter wonderland

On January 12th we awoke to an overnight fall of clinging white fluffiness.   So we spent most of the day going to Parry Sound via Hwy 529 and returning the same way.   The snow had changed to rain near Pointe au Baril so the following images were all made north of PAB during the morning and late afternoon.

This is what we saw:

The f0llowing night the wind came up, removing all of the snow clinging to the branches …. reminding this picture-maker to take advantage of each moment … carpe diem!

  1. Hi Hi and it’s more than a WInter Wonderland – it’s this secret garden. Your composition, the lighting bring this into view (.. my road). Thank you very much. xoxo

    • As you (and some others) know it is only secret to those who do not see. But seeing is a voluntary activity so it is only secret to those who chose to keep it a secret from themselves, sadly. But it is only a secret for as long as the condition exists, often ephemerally.
      So the challenge is to see the secret garden if and when it occurs. Fortunately we have an infinite multitude of secret gardens out there every second of every day.
      The fun is looking for them, finding them, seeing them and enjoying them! 🙂
