20180102-04 Snowstorm and results

The first few days of the New Year brought some cold weather, a snowstorm and a couple days of cold clear weather.  This is what we saw …

Bleak sunshine on the road ditch along Hwy 529A into Bayfield Inlet…

Twin Rivers  is freezing up the first time this winter…

We practiced making pictures of falling snow,  trying to capture the mood of the action.  Focus mid-foreground.  Longish shutter interval depending on windspeed driving the snow.    Capture as much light as possible.  I try to use ETTR generally.

Click on the images to see the real texture of the falling snow.

These were made along Hwy 529 including a trip into Hwy 529A:

Ancient (1907?) CPR concrete culvert under the MacTier-Sudbury branch, carrying CPR and CNR westbound traffic only.   The eastbound traffic is handled by the CNR trackage.

Two fishing tugs resting at Bayfield Inlet for the winter.

Well convoluted rocks show up well behind the negligee of falling snow …

Jack pine stands out starkly alongside the road …

Typical sight along Hwy 529 … Tamaracks, Tag Alders, a dead Jack pine and distant White pines.

On the day after the storm little critters left tracks as they scurried from shelter.

On Still River Road Niffen’s fence post still points at a spruce tree.

 

 

We went for a drive up Jamot Lumber Road, which had just been plowed …

From the Bailey bridge over the Pickerel River …

On the way back, along Jamot Lumber Road…

Sun is getting low on the horizon… giving the snow a pinkish glow while the shadows reflect the scattered sunlight of the blue sky above…

Creek under Hwy 522 near Grundy Provincial Park is in shadow…

Nice colours at the end of day at Boucher’s Pit Road…

American Tree Sparrow is pecking seeds in my driveway …

Winter is here!
