Ice Forming/ Watery Wednesday

Ice forming on the Trent-Severn Waterway, Bolsover, Ontario

This photo was taken last Saturday afternoon, another lovely late autumn day.

I am linking to Watery Wednesday where you can find many more watery photos.

"A truly gorgeous shot," he said icily, watching as she pulled on her mittens and stuffed the camera into a large pocket in her large coat!

see you there! said...

Looks pretty cold to me. Will it totally ice over before winter leaves?

I know you did not take that photo today - I could walk on the ice, quite a ways out from shore this morning.

Impressive, I have never seen anything like that...

VioletSky said...

There's more of an effort up that way than where I am. I want a little more winter for my Christmas (though I know many would not agree that snow is worth it)

when I was in Windsor, I sat on a freezing bench, and see "iceBergs" flow down the Detroit River. I found some of these friends on Face book, and we have great time talking about this.

A beautiful image that it is unlikely we will see in Rio de Janeiro. Thanks for sharing.

Be happy!

Rebecca said...

So beautiful. But I'd like to view if from a toasty warm room with a fire.

Roan said...

Just looking at that icy water gave me a chill. Beautiful pic, though.

Sandy Carlson said...

Beautiful to see. Our ice has been coming and going. The ice fisherman don't have a prayer at this rate!

Randy said...

That's lovely!

George said...

This looks like a painting -- and I mean that as a compliment. It's absolutely beautiful; a perfect wintry scene.

Rose said...

Kind of wishing I could have been there....

Watery Wednesday could be a challenge here. Maybe a puddle.

The photo creates a nice sense of clean slate. http://looseleafnotes.com

We have frost on the balcony glass this morning, a sign we had a clear night and a beautiful day coming. - Margy

Winter is almost here.....so you have some ice forming. We have not had any here as yet. This is another beautiful capture. Lovely photography tonight. genie

I beg your forgiveness for my cutting and pasting my comment, but there was no way on Earth I would be able to make it around the whole globe to wish everybody a Merry Christmas otherwise.

The magical elves that constitute my staff have demonstrated their lack of respect in either not showing up for work at all, or those that have all seem a little worse for wear (if you catch my drift). All they seem to do is sit around smoking cigarettes that, frankly, smell funny. In addition, they play cards and tell dirty jokes rather than do their jobs! Consequently, the reindeer are all filthy and out of shape.

I now have my two sons pulling the sleigh, but they are struggling. I’ve been told that it’s a big ask for a three and five year old, but I made it this far with a couple of mangy chooks, an arthritic wallaby and three peculiar wombats! Unfortunately, we lost all bar one wombat over Mumbai (and the sole survivor is exhibiting clear signs of PTSD).

Anyway, all the way down here at the bottom of the world (A.K.A. Tasmania), and from myself, Jen, Henry and Ezra, please have a Merry Christmas/Winter Solstice/Hanukkah/Festivus/Ashura and a happy New Year!

I hope that all of your holiday photos turn out to be triumphs, your stocking is stuffed full of lots of tasty treats and not coal and that all your naan/ prawn cocktails/ currywurst are all as tasty as can be!
