Photo Challenge #12 / It’s Time

20200318ma_0258“Time for Spring” / Theme: It’s Time

A little about this photo…

Technically, Spring is here. (As of Thursday, March 19th.) The flowers have been peeping up through the soil. We’ve had warm sunshine and rain. But then, there’s this: We get a frost. The frost is definitely pretty, but… just saying… It’s about time for the frost to go. We’re ready for Spring. It’s time for Spring!

Photo Challenge #11 / Sooner or Later

20200215ma_0154“Lost Mitten” / Theme: Sooner or Later

A little about this photo…

Saw this lonely little mitten that somebody had stuck up on this fence. No mitten partner in sight! This feels like the quintessential winter childhood dilemma… Sooner or later, you’re going to lose one of those mittens! (Which is why I’m sure my mom used that little string to attach my mittens to each other. I hated that string, but I probably didn’t lose any mittens that way.)

Note: I took this photo a couple of weeks ago… BEFORE all the craziness about coronavirus. Schools in our area have since been shut down until April. Somehow, this lost mitten takes on a bit of a different meaning from when I took the photo. The take-home message: Take care of your mittens! (And by mittens, I don’t actually mean just mittens.)

Photo Challenge #8 / Water

20200215ma_0142“Falling Water” / Theme: Water

A little about this photo…

No matter how cold it gets, water continues to gush over Niagara Falls. And Niagara Falls in winter is always beautiful. Cold, but beautiful.

The trick is trying to get a shot of the falls that isn’t being taken by every tourist and their mother. I love these iron railings that guard the public. So, I decided to use them as a frame to show off this wonderful, beautiful water.

(By the way, this is the Horseshoe Falls. You can see it’s curved, like a horseshoe.)

Photo Challenge #8 / Road Worthy

20190214ma_0336“Tires for Sale” / Theme: Road Worthy

A little about this photo…

I’ve been keeping my eye out for something “Road Worthy” and decided to go with this photo. I happened upon these tires during a photo walk. I’m not sure they’re actually road-worthy. I’m not even sure they’re for sale (even though I used that in my “title”). But they could be, right?

I love how they’re just peeking out between the slats of this fence.

Photo Challenge #7 / Pop of Colour

20190212ma_0302“Pretty in Pink” / Theme: Pop of Colour

A little about this photo…

There’s not a lot of colour this time of year. So, when the Christmas cactus decided to show off some coral pink blooms for Valentine’s Day, I decided this would fit nicely with the “Pop of Colour” prompt. (I guess it’s a Valentine cactus this year!)

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.

Photo Challenge #3 / Natural Beauty

20190102ma_0145“Water Falling” / Theme: Natural Beauty

A little about this photo…

This photo makes me feel cold! (Maybe I’m just remembering how cold my hands were when I took this shot. It was the one day I forgot to bring gloves. Not a smart thing to do in January!) This “waterfall” is part of the old Welland Canal system. It’s no longer in use for its intended purpose. The “new” canal was moved years ago.

I love how that one leaf makes such a pretty pattern in the water. Natural beauty!

Photo Challenge #1 / Leading Lines

20190101ma_0057“At End of the Pier” / Theme: Leading Lines

A little about this photo…

One of my first photos of 2019! Went down to the lake on January 1st and captured this shot. Among many others. I had a hard time figuring out which photo to use and which prompt to start the year off with! Well… this is the one I chose. The lighthouse at the end of the pier.

In the summer, this place is packed with people. On a cold winter’s day, we had the place to ourselves. (This is Lake Ontario, by the way. If you look closely, you can see the city of Toronto off in the distance.)
