Evergreen – Dec 2018

Pine, spruce and cedar are predominant in our area. Through the winter their green needles remind us that summer will return again.

The little coniferous among the birch and poplar at the creek made me think of Christmas.

Have a safe and happy Holiday season.

Happy July!

At the water’s edge

The other day I braved the bitter cold air and water to stand in the creek for a close up of the hoar frost on the bent branches of bushes along the water’s edge.

It reminded me of the last time I waded into cold winter waters for some icy shots. I shared a number of those shots in this post which explains the frozen lake surface in the image below. It’s from the 2015 shoot I selected the image for our calendar this month.

The Creek

Agimak Creek is my ‘go to’ place when I need a pretty shot. The birches that line the trail along the flowing water never fail to look good. It is one of my favourite places and thankfully, only a short walk away from my home.

Happy March.

Happy New Year! Here is a desktop calendar for you to enjoy. You can download specific screen resolutions from the Free Calendar dropdown menu or click here.

This creek runs north out of Sandbar Lake into Little Indian. The trees along its banks are typically frosted like this from November though April. Since it is only about a 15 minute drive from home, I visit frequently. Last winter there was so much snow even with snowshoes it was mid thigh deep. This season we have had so little snow that getting down to the water’s edge did not even require snowshoes! I plan to get back there as soon as the temperatures rise to at least -15C.2015-01_1440x900

A new year!
Will you be making changes to your life? Have you set goals? Are there exciting events ahead? I hope your answer to all three questions is yes.
Enjoy!
