Storm surges, snow squalls, frozen rain, creeks on the rise, ice jams, gale force winds, soft waves of slush – February’s weather has been, shall we say, entertaining. Here’s a small selection of pictures from the past week.
What colour is ice, you might ask? After a fierce storm on Lake Ontario much of the ice is deep dark brown, as breaking waves have scoured up sand and pebbles, piling the mix into new peninsulas along the shoreline. The next day’s winds then carve out new fjords, bridges and islands.
After frozen rain coats a log on the marsh, the sun carves equally complex patterns in the shimmer.
Where the geese have been, we can always find our feather-of-the-day.
Cold temperatures, bright sun, gentle waves spilling over beach pebbles – a recipe for beautiful edge effects.
Let’s have one more shot of cold water on the rocks:
