Hint of Spring in February

…not all of February was cold and snowy

Last weekend we had beautiful weather that brought the walkers, dogs and photographers out in droves. I think people knew that more snow and colder temperatures were on their way so they took advantage of the cleared paths, sun and warmer climes.050-C6016-EFC2-43-FC-BCA4-EF096425-C551-1-201-a

The Beauty and Power of Lake Ontario

….caught these images in a two hour window of sunshine today

Lake Ontario sits about 100 metres from my house. After a miserable day of rain yesterday and grey skies this morning the sun decided to come out. It was a glorious period of time, although short and I managed to get some photos of the lake as the waves crashed along the shoreline. I also managed to get in a two hour walk through the neighbourhood and explored some areas that I had never seen before (more about that in another post).

A Photo a Week Challenge – Sunshine

…thanks to Nancy Merrill for hosting A Photo a Week Challenge

It seems like we haven’t seen too much sunshine as of late but between blizzards last Wednesday the sun did come out for a brief spell.IMG-1858

Sunshine

….hooray, hooray!!!!

Today was the first day in a long time that I was able to go for a long walk and actually take photos. It was cold but the sun was so bright and beautiful that I hardly felt it. I managed to get in an extra 3000 steps and now only have another 4500 to meet my goal of 10 000 steps a day. I’ve been very bad as of late. I’ve just wanted to hunker down and veg in front of the TV or my computer screen.

Here are a few of the shots that I managed to take today.

The best part of the walk was that for the first time in almost two months I was able to take Frances with me. This is the farthest she’s walked with me willingly without my husband at our sides. Hopefully she’s turned a corner and I’ll be able to get her out more often now.
