Photo Challenge #10 / Peek-a-boo

20190307ma_0509“Peeking Through” / Theme: Peek-a-boo

A little about this photo…

I took this photo this week. See all that snow? That’s Lake Ontario. And yes, it was cold. Sunny, but cold!

I took all sorts of photos, but I like this one that’s peeking at the lighthouse through the bare branches of this tree. Not your standard shot. But I think that’s why I like it.

Photo Challenge #6 / Rainy Day

20190206ma_0269“Coated in Ice” / Theme: Rainy Day

A little about this photo…

This is what happens on a rainy day in February… The temperature drops and the rain turns to ice. It’s certainly pretty! However, I’m glad I don’t have to be out on the roads in this weather. Just walking to take this photo was a slippery adventure.

“Tea for Two” / Theme: Reflection

A little about this photo…

Place a tea cup in front of a mirror and voila! Tea for one instant becomes Tea for two! Taking photos of tea is always great because you get to drink… tea! And eat the scones. And guess what? Violets are the February flower, so I think I just might get double points for this one! 🙂

“Frozen in Ice” / Theme: Close Up

A little about this photo…

Lily-of-the-valley… frozen in ice. After having seen some wonderful photos (I forget where now) of flowers frozen in ice, I decided to try something like it. I am quite pleased with the result. I almost feel as if the flowers have been trapped in amber.

Photo Challenge #1 / Winter

“Winter Wonderland”

A little about this photo…

Taken at Niagara Falls… It’s not often that the Falls looks quite this spectacular. I mean, it always look spectacular, but not quite this winter-y. And one of the reasons for this is that it’s been below freezing since our beautiful White Christmas. All that mist freezes, creating some beautiful works of art.

For those of you who don’t know Niagara Falls, this is the American Falls, taken from the Canadian side. All that white “land” below the falls is, of course, the Niagara River… turned into ice. It’s what is called the “Ice Bridge”. Back in the day, people used to walk around down there. But we don’t do that anymore.
