20170118-28 January Thaw

We had a long thaw in January 2017, encouraging birdies to forage, exposing ground and causing waterways to flow.  Some examples:


Ground is showing on Hwy 554 near Dillon …



Pine Siskins foraging for grit …




Oil storage tanks come down at the CPR Britt fuel facility….


Water on the thin (10cm) ice at St Amants dockage ….


Roaring Magnetawan River at Ahmic Lake outflow …



Classic silo near Town of Magnetawan …


Late afternoon on Hwy 159 …


What can follow a thaw?  Yes, some cold sunshiny days, which ended our month of January.

  1. Hi Hi and THANK YOU – really liked the birds’ pixs and the “Ahmic Lake” reminded me of your much-previous Malaysia pix.. ‘It’s not what you look at that matters, it’s what you see.’ ..Henry David Thoreau plus this one ..”Ah, but a man’s reach should exceed his grasp, Or what’s a heaven for?” Andrea del Sarto

    • Thanks Kris,
      Remind me of the much-previous Malaysia pix! They have gone into my memory vortex!

  2. The photo of the jay is stunning!!! Love the contrast in colour between the bird and the background!

    • Thanks Marilyn,
      Yes, that photo was taken with my wonderful Leica 100-400 mm (200-800 mm EFL) lens on the Panasonic Lumix GH4 camera. Great colour rendition with very little work in Lightroom post processing. That is a case where good focusing with good equipment yields good results.
