Winter Wonderland on Christmas Day

The weather forecast said we would get snow on Christmas Day but that there wouldn’t be much. When I woke up this morning and saw the amount of snow, I was surprised. We got about 10 cm of snow for Christmas morning. That hasn’t happened for a long time.

A White Christmas

I had to walk over to the pharmacy, so I didn’t take my camera along with me, but once I saw how picturesque everything looked, I knew I had to make time to go out for another walk today. Around 2:30 pm, I grabbed my camera and headed out the door. 

Afternoon Sun

The great thing is the sun goes down early this time of year, and you get beautiful light that happens mid-afternoon. I was out for about an hour, and you can see this golden light was starting to deepen by the time I took the second photo. It was a beautiful day to celebrate Christmas.

This is my last post for 2020, and I wish you all the very best for 2021!

Footprints in the Snow

We had a little snow overnight. Nothing as significant as we received last Sunday, but enough to be interesting enough to go out for a walk in the late afternoon to get some photos.

Footprints in the Snow

I liked these footprints on the creek path. The way the light was shining across the path caught my eye. I got down really low to get a better view of the light and shadow around the footprints. It gives you a unique perspective on your subject when you change your angle or position.

Frozen Reeds

It was cold enough today to freeze the small puddles by the schoolyard (which are deeper than you would think). The soft light was hitting the ice in a way that made it glow.

Taking the catwalk home I noticed these berries that seem to have got stuck on the fence. I decided it looked interesting enough to take a photo.
