Sam Smith Park

So for the third time in a row I headed to Colonel Sam Smith park for some more photo hunting. Now that the frigid temps are upon us and I’m sure it will only get worse it was time to check out some ice.

In the inner pond that feeds out into the lake trapped bubbles have appeared in the newly frozen over area. The shape of these remind me of a melding of Homer Simpson and Pacman. After the exploration of the pond I went over to the lakeside to see what I could find.

Lots of ice had formed on the shore with some of the rocks harbouring large pieces of ice further from the shore in the shallows. The two above reminded me to a mama whale and baby whale swimming along. They weren’t the only things “swimming” on the shore. A large group of mallards was headed in my direction with a couple females in the lead.

They didn’t notice me right away but when the did they started to veer off. The female gave me a few looks before deciding it was safe to come a little closer. They eventually continued on their way looking for little things to nibble on as they paddled their way around the shore.
