Went with family to take my granddaughter to the park, which is to the right of this area but I thought it was interesting how deserted the beach area looked…it was a warm night, definitely swimming weather?

Thought I’d post a few photos of the ice up close, gives you and idea of the force behind the ice when you see how small the pieces are…

Last week, Wed. April 27th, I stopped at the waterfront to take a few photos of the ice…it has finally begun to move.  If you look closely you can see the ice is beginning to crystallize as well.   A bit slow this year but then this winter has been unusual to say the least…

A belated Merry Christmas to those who celebrate…this photo was taken Christmas night from my daughters balcony.  It was taken with my iPhone as I forgot my camera!

Chief Commanda I

I’ve posted photos of the Chief Commanda previously…it was launched in 1946, and served Lake Nipissing until 1975 when it was replaced by Cheif Commanda II.  Chief I is now a restaurant on the waterfront.

sunset & silhouettes…

This is the sunset I posted last week, taken as I approached the beach…I like the silhouette of the trees on either side.

Hope to see you again…

I’ve been absent for awhile now, life happens…I hope to be around now!

I’m trying out a new theme, but not sure it is what I want as I can’t seem to make the photos larger to fill more of the page?  Will be playing around for the next little while so if you come by and see something unusual it is because I’m playing.

When I went out a couple of weeks ago it was just as the sun had set and the sky was awash with the most vibrant colors, I’d gotten out of the habit of keeping my camera in my vehicle but my trusty iPhone did the trick I think…

where is spring?

How has your spring been so far?  Ours hasn’t arrived yet…check out our snow banks!   As I am writing this it is snowing, in the morning the temperature is supposed to be -26F or -14C with the wind chill!   …could be worse right?

bowing to the ground…

I never get tired of looking at these trees…they amaze me, their root system must reach a great distance.  We have very strong winds in this area and I’m always expecting to drive by and find one or more of these old fellows toppled over.  This photo was taken a few weeks before Christmas…

more sunsets…

It is interesting how I’ve not seen the sunset for months and recently I’ve been able to capture it three times..awesome!   This one wasn’t as intense as some, but then it was just setting, I find the colors more vibrant a short while after the setting…didn’t stay around to see what happened that night as I wasn’t dressed warm enough!

sunset.2. dec.20.2014This photo was taken a few weeks ago right after a warmers spell…you can see the ridges of ice that built up due to the winds and then colder temperatures…makes for dangerous snowmobiling and walking…

hard to believe…

This has been a most unusual December for me…Christmas arrived in the blink of an eye!   Enjoy your time regardless of how or if you celebrate.    By the way, it is raining again and is supposed to continue through tomorrow…snow will be gone again!

sunset anyone…

Took this photo with my iPhone 6 last night…began using the phone Friday evening so don’t know what I think about it yet…made sure I found a solid clip on case as I have a tendency to drop my phone.   One shattered screen is enough!   As you can see we have snow again…it is cold today so it just might stay for a while this time!

on my way home…

I had lunch with my daughter this afternoon and when done we went to do a bit of Christmas shopping for Paige, my grand-baby…on the way home this is what I was fortunate enough to see!

strange season…

The majority of snow is gone…for now… but we are left with ice build up along the shore line…this has been such a strange fall weather wise. I know we aren’t the only place to experience such unusual weather patterns, just stating a fact.   This was taken around 4:30pm yesterday…it was foggy over the water but not so much over the land, made for interesting photos.

ice.lake.nipissing.3.nov. 2014This ice build did not melt and will make for difficult walking and snowmobiling once we get more snow, but is something that is beyond our control and happens often as the winds are strong off the lake…

bowing down to fall…

When I looked at these leaves that is exactly the thought that came to mind…pretty colors, we didn’t have much red to speak of at least not that I saw, it was mostly yellows and oranges.  While pretty they aren’t my favorite fall leave colors, but the combo here is striking!

bubbles, bubbles and more bubbles!

When I go for my walks I like to walk to the lake…there are many access for me to use but they don’t differ much in appearance.   There were waves washing up on the shore so I took a few photos of them.   check out the bubbles…simplistic yes, but cool.

ominous looking clouds…

this was yesterday around 6:00pm as I was leaving the Market…looked intense, but didn’t really amount to much other than a light rain!  Taken with my iPhone
