“Winter lies too long in country towns; hangs on until it is stale and shabby, old and sullen.”
- Willa Cather (1873 - 1947), My Antonia -
Saturday we spent the day outdoors taking photos and getting some much needed air. Below are some of the images I snapped as we braved the cold.
This is winter around here...
|This is the Gananoque River where I photograph the swans. It is completely frozen.|
|Between me and that house is a body of water that is frozen and covered in snow.|
Winter is much too long in many places in Canada, especially when it’s a tough one, and eventually you grow tired of it all; the snow, the cold, the shorter days...
|This is the time of year that I'm happy I'm a cat person.|
|Beneath all this snow is water.|
There’s only so much time you can spend outdoors in the winter before the cold catches up with you. A lot of time is inevitably spent indoors, which can be quite frustrating.

|The snow looks much prettier in the country.|
It can be a very pretty season, but how long can you go ‘ooh’ and ‘ahhh’ over the monotony of snow? Winter lacks colours that the other seasons offer like green and pink and orange and purple...
|Lake Ontario is frozen and covered with snow.|
|Another view of Lake Ontario frozen.|
With its abundance of snowy and cold days, winter has been particularly harsh this year. Spring will not come too soon for me. Bring it on!
|People are walking their dog on frozen Lake Ontario.|
|The lake looks like a snow desert.|
You've overstayed your welcome, winter. And you haven't been a very good guest. It's time to move on...

Have a nice Wednesday, everyone!
