Touring MY Islands (WPC: Tour Guide)

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!

The Morning Snow Blues (WPC: Solitude)

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!

The Gift of Christmas Snow! (Monochrome Monday)

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!

 

 

 

 

Distorted Raindrops (OWPC: Distorted)

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.

Five, Six, Pick up Sticks! (Monochrome Monday)

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.

Five Six Pick Up Sticks

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“!

 

 

 

Rain or Shine (Monochrome Monday)

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!

Come Rain or Shine

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!
