Sometimes Mother Nature forgets to look at the calender.
Still your scenes are pretty cool Camera Girl.

We too are having another little taste of winter. High only in the 50s yesterday. ONLY you say?

That's often what spring looks like here in Canada. I really like your collage! Amazes me how some dogs don't notice the cold

Jack said...

That dog was bred for exactly this!

RamblingRound said...

I think the dog doesn't mind that icy water a bit.

RedPat said...

That's one crazy dog!

Your March looks a little warmer and dryer than ours! We just got another 10 inches over the weekend!

Haha, that says it all, it's officially Spring but it's still March! Love the pix and hope you face a bit of a thaw...we had a mix of snow/sleet this morning. Hurry up Spring!

Janie said...

Pretty scenes! I especially like the swan flexing his wings. March is roaring here, but the first green grass blades are just showing up.

Lovely images. Reminds of back home along Lake Michigan at the Manitowoc Harbour. These are worthy of a hot coffee moment:)

George said...

Although your photos are very beautiful, the picture of the dog in the water chilled me to the bone.

Marie said...

Such a nice collage of pictures!

Jill said...

The dog just made me laugh!

Yes it's spring but it doesn't look nor feel like it, does it.
The water in Lake Ontario sure does look cold.

Stephanie said...

Nice shots!

I guess if one wants to spend time outdoors then you have to dress accordingly. It is still unseasonably chilly here in Oklahoma.

Lowell said...

Hardy do, hardy souls. Gotta be hardy up in them thar parts, methinks! It kinda looks like spring should burst upon you at any time, but just not yet.

Sue said...

Cool dog, in every sense of the word.

;)

Sallie (FullTime-Life) said...

Winter hangs on but the brightness seems to hold promises of spring to come in spite of the lingering cold.

That is some brave dog!
