I was looking through some of the photos I’ve taken and came across this one…love this tree with it’s gnarly branches

I took this photo last fall, in October some time…we always have over the top winds in October.  This tree had a large base but it just couldn’t withstand the intensity of the wind that day.

Buds on the branches mean spring is here!!!

I put the clean laundry down…turned my back for a minute and look who decided to burrow in…

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…

You can’t tell from the photo but this little fellow was looking for lunch in the city, with this property butting up to a four lane highway.

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.

crazy clouds

If you visit my blog at all you will know I’m fascinated by clouds…this photo was taken Oct. 10th., last day of the Market.   It was difficult to make the photo presentable as the sun was very bright.  I cropped most of it out as I wanted the cloud formation to be the focal…

This is has been the subject of most of my photo for the past three years…every Saturday and Wednesday.   Along with photos of the vendors and booths.  The North Bay Farmers’ Market.

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!
