The Bay in Winter


Along about January or February, the bay starts to look like this; miniature icebergs that eventually join if the weather is cold enough for a long period of time. A cold snap will insure this happening, and that cold snap is likely on its way. The wind also plays a vital role in this production as it pushes water up onto the breakwall and the lighthouse and makes very interesting snow sculptures for our enjoyment. But for now, the temperatures are winter-comfortable (mid 20's) and there is no snow expected today.

Great grey and whitish shot with just the one red spot. Nice one.

I love the way you show us this bay in different seasons and lights. It becomes kind of familiar.

Just catching up, Christie. Really pretty photos lately! (If cold. Brrr!)
