This week the Daily Post for their Weekly Photo Challenge is asking us to be a Tour Guide by sharing images of where we live. Driving the children to school, I found what could be many captures to highlight our small town. Then the sun came out…
Although we’ve had no real snow of late to talk about only rain, just outside our town has had a surprisingly lot of snow in just the last week alone. In fact our highway, the only way in and out of town, was closed for 24 hours due to a high avalanche risk.
When the sun broke through the clouds yesterday morning, this short respite in weather allowed the highway to reopen thus allowing our life to continue as scripted. It was like watching the heavy stage curtain rise to reveal the performance behind!
As the snow began falling harder out over the harbour, this one solitude little blue fishing boat came hightailing in. It made its way down to the marina quicker then any fisher boat I’d ever seen before… or since!
Solitude is the Weekly Photo Challenge this week from the Daily Post.
By now I’m sure a lot of you are already tired of the snow. Here, however, snow is a rare event hence we make a little go a long way. Although given the length of our driveway that’s not very hard, lol.😂
To wake up and see our front yards last Sunday looking like this was more than we’d dared dream. It really was beginning to feel a lot like Christmas!
After yesterday’s ferocious winds and rain, to walk outside today to stillness and sunshine feels more than a tad surreal. Without the wind, raindrops were clinging to my maple tree like Christmas lights. Especially with a little tweaking.
Bumping up the contrast and shadows distorted the photo enough to help create the illusion of strings of lights amongst the branches. Distorted is this week’s word for the One Word Photo Challenge from Jennifer Nichole Wells.
Looking out my sun-room window the other morning, I had to look twice at what was floating out in the harbour. Initially it wasn’t making any sense but finally it came into focus.
Somehow or other one of the many logs that float around the river systems here in BC had taken a fancy to something a little more “a la naturale“!
The weather was more than average one day last week but this person seemed to determine to go out regardless. There’s no holding back a true boatie!
The pop of red in the jacket they were wearing seemed in stark contrast to the rest of their surroundings. Great for safety, whilst also making for a great photo!
Watching the sun rise last week over the ocean, the clouds surrounding it seemed undecided as to blow on through or to stay, allowing the skies to pour down upon us.
Eventually the clouds disappeared but as the sun climbed above the horizon, the sun’s rays reflected on and behind the clouds was more than a glorious sight to behold. What a way to start the day!
Between our three years in Iceland and our four-and-a-half years here in Canada we’ve managed to see one or two BLIZZARDS, this week’s word challenge from Jennifer Nichole Wells.
Without a doubt, our last blizzard came as part of that incredible snowstorm we experienced back in February. It was a doozy as you well know from my previous post of snow!
This photo was taken in the afternoon towards the end of the massive dump we had – two meters in 24-hours but hey, what a story we got to tell. Again and again and again…
