Cold Winter's Day

Oh and do I mean cold!! It is -26 Celcius with a windchill that brings down the temperature to -33 degrees.
These photos come from one of our local parks, called Strathcona Park. It is located along the Saskatchewan River and has beautiful walking trails that follow along the river. It is only about 5 kilometers from our house too, what could be better than that!
Quite a few of the walking paths have cute little bridges to go over. 

A bit of a reflection!

Hazy Shades of Winter

I'm ready for the coming of Spring. This winter has been long and cold, and I am looking forward to sunnier warmer temps. 
And Daylight Savings, just two and a half weeks away. Longer days, lighter evenings.

Passing Testament

1440 
An old abandoned church off the road leading to Etzicom in Alberta. It looks like patches of water around the church, its actually frozen patches of ice, so I did not venture around to the back to take photos from behind.

Beaded Bokeh

A bracelet on a craft table that caught my eye. 
It's not something that I would buy to wear, its really not my style of jewelry, but I liked the colors and the way the light played on the beads. 
Photography makes it possible for me to see the things that I normally would not even pause to see. It opens my world a little bit more!

Ice Pickles

I have been struggling lately with my photography so its cool to see something in my travels that captivates my attention. 
 
My hubby and I were out the other day and happened to take a wrong turn which brought us to the back of a large store. As we were passing by the back storage area I saw all these icicles attached to a shelving unit.
 It caught my eye and I asked my hubby to stop so I could capture a few photos. 

That doesn't happen often for me with my photo slump, so he was very happy to stop to let me take these few photos. 
He told me that he used to call icicles Ice Pickles! Hence the name of this post!

I liked the textures of the chain link, the metal shelving, the silver shelves and the sparkly ice pickles. 

Hopefully when you see some icicles you will remember this post and call them Ice Pickles too!

Its a Wonderful World

Do these pictures look as cold as it was when they were taken? It snowed tiny little flakes all day yesterday and this is what accumulated from the snowfall. The snow is powdery and light, and did I mention cold!! 
You can't make a snowball out of it to throw.

When you walk in it, the footsteps make a crunching sound.

It just compacts it down when you drive on it. And if you spun your wheels enough you could make a thin layer of ice.
This is our favorite park to visit in Medicine Hat. To get down to it you have to go down a steep winding long hill, with a drop off if you were so inclined to slide over the side on your way down. 

You can see it is quite deserted out here because most people are too scared or is that too smart to attempt the hill down and then back up again! 

The Sand cliffs across the water from Echodale park. The geese flying over the river.
One thing about snow on a sunny day, its so bright it almost hurts to really open your eyes.

Love the shadows.

The temperature today is -8Celcius, in other words Cold!

I think these winter pics of Echodale are just one example of What a Wonderful World it is we live in!!
