After a couple of days of snow temperatures here are now on the rise which means that today was a great day to enjoy some warm weather on Hamilton Mountain (and also that the snow is slowly melting away into nothing). When preparing for my hike today I didn’t take into consideration that the melting would create so much ice on the trail. Certain sections of the trail were tricky especially when on the edge of the escarpment. The photo below shows a field which was were I felt safest to stop and take photos.
You can see the icy path at my feet. And although it would not be so hard to go around it other parts of the trail are not so wide open or even offer an escape from the ice. The fun thing about shooting ice is the patterns that it makes as it was being formed or even as it melts. Here is one of my favourites from the day.
To me it’s almost like looking at clouds. I can see the shape of a monster about to eat another 😉 What do you see?
