The silence of a snowfall (WPC – Silence)

Right after a snowfall where we first lived in Canada was always so beautiful. Along with this snowfall would always come a glorious calming silence. Well, there would be silence for a little while at least.

Following a snowfall the air would be filled with the awful scrapping sound of metal on concrete, intertwined with the sound of machines, as we all cleared our driveways before the next snowfall, ugh!

Silence is this week’s Photo Challenge from The Daily Post.

Dressing up the Old (Monochrome Monday)

Seems only appropriate with the memory of our last snowfall melting further and further away to have one last photograph of a dying branch with snow flakes.

What’s the possibility of more snow in February for us I wonder? Never say never, and February normally is the coldest month so… maybe, just maybe.

Ghost Ship (Monochrome Monday)

As the snowfall became heavier and heavier, it was as if the harbour was making the most of the opportunity to swallow up this huge cargo under the cloak of whiteness.

As it sailed behind this tree, it would not have surprised me in the least if it hadn’t appeared on the other side. It sent shivers down my spine as I watched.

 

 

 

 

 

A Photo a Week Challenge: Fresh (Snow)

With FRESH as this week’s challenge word from Nancy Merrill Photography, I couldn’t resist the opportunity to share another photo from last week’s fresh snowfall. Note: Snowfall here is a rarity in the last quarter-century.

The reflection of the pier lights in the harbour behind us created the most glorious background for our neighbour’s tree which, for me, was perfectly coated in just the right amount of snow!

 

 

 

 

 

The Perfect Excuse to Relax (WPC: Relax)

Sunday saw our long-awaited first snowfall. With the temperatures low, snow clinging to the branches and rails outside and snow still quietly falling, it didn’t take much convincing for the three of us to stay indoors and relax!

It was a glorious day, watching the snowflakes swirl in the air whilst kicking-back and relaxing. RELAX is the Weekly Photo Challenge word from the Daily Post this week.

Long time coming… (Monochrome Monday)

How glorious it was to wake up to a world covered in a dusting of snow yesterday. It was nothing quite like the epic six-foot we had in one 24-hour period in Kitimat last February but we didn’t care. It was snow!

It's been a long time coming!

We had the beauty of a fresh snowfall without any of the shovelling or worry. It really was quite delightful having the opportunity to simply sit back in the lounge chair appreciating the beauty surrounding us before it disappeared.
