Pefferlaw River

 Fence and bridge over Pefferlaw River

Pefferlaw is a community a few miles north of East Gwillimbury. Last weekend - although the weather had been cold - the rushing water had kept ice from forming over the top of the river.

Another view of the bridge

It may be totally covered in ice today, though, because the Arctic sent us some extremely cold air yesterday. Brrr.

I am linking to Good Fences HERE.

I guess you will have to go back for some ice photos of the same scene. It will probably look very cool and cold.

Anvilcloud said...

It has been incredibly cold. Good for you getting out there.

Revrunner said...

What a lovely river! The ice just makes it lovelier.

Pretty shots of the river! I hope you stay warm on these outings.. We have a min 12 degrees with the wind chill this morning.. Have a happy day!

Not a day for a paddle!

Margaret Adamson said...

No ice or snow here but the chill is here today although we have bright blue skies. Your shots are great with the snow on them and I love that bridge.

Beautiful wintery shots of bridge and river :) Yes, please go back there when it's covered with ice, must be some great pictures! But, please don't slip and fall in it :))

see you there! said...

You can almost hear the water rushing by. I wonder who lives in that house.

I had to go out and check a gate at 6 a.m. today (before daylight) and the 21 degrees outside made me feel like I might be in Ontario!

Birdman said...

Interesting 'take' on a fence today.

Bethany Carson said...

Beautiful shots of the bridge!

William Kendall said...

Very pretty shots. I've seen the place name on the map and on direction signs, but I've never been there.

PerthDailyPhoto said...

Well done on braving the weather for these gorgeous shots EG, I do love an arched bridge. Bet it will look magical iced over.

The perspective and composition of your photos is just outstanding! I absolutely love the old boxcar (yesterday) and the first bridge photo today. Great work! John

Lowell said...

It's a beautiful bridge and looks like a beautiful community. I'm trying to picture it in the summertime! Kind of a strange name, though!

You're hearing Jingle Bells? Does this happen all the time or only at certain times of the year? :)

Cranberry Morning said...

The second photo is my favorite. What a beautiful bridge and great composition! Makes me not even mind the snow (for a while).

Sandra said...

to day the Arctic blast is leaking down into Florida, but no ice.. just lots of wind and 41 degrees, it will be gone in two days

Barbara Wójcik said...

It is a lovely river!

Liz Needle said...

Beautiful shots of the bridge

Kate said...

Like the way you photographed the bridge!

TexWisGirl said...

hard freeze in texas, too. 20 degrees. but your scene looks colder! :)

Sharon Anck said...

Two beautiful views. Stay warm!

Pamela Gordon said...

Oh it's cold alright! Pretty shots of the river and bridge.

Carola Bartz said...

It looks pretty cold, brr. I hope you stay warm.

Montanagirl said...

Terrific photos and fences!! Looks pretty chilly.

DeniseinVA said...

I love the name of the river. Beautiful shots and our temperatures are also taking a dip this week.

Ruth Kelly said...

Lovely little bridge! Bundle up!

LV said...

It is very cold here today, but nothing compared to where you are. I would freeze there.

Mary Hone said...

Neat old bridge. Stay warm up there.

Linda W. said...

Nice bridge! I'm always partial to arch bridges.

Lynne said...

Beautiful pictures . . .
I liked seeing sun glimpses along with the fence and bridge railings . . .
A treat for me when all I am seeing is WHITE these days!

Karen S. said...

What gorgeous places to drive to!

RedPat said...

Pefferlaw is such a nice word. Love your pics of the river, EG!

VP said...

We probably won't get any snow this year!

Sylvia K said...

I love the name and what great captures for the day!! Beautiful river and it does look cold!! Hope you have a great weekend! Stay warm!!

Andrea Priebe said...

Nice solidly built bridge over that cold, cold stream ... and the fence is very interesting as well as functional. I wish my country would get busy and fix or rebuild our bridges ... I sure wouldn't want to fall into that cold water :) Nice post EGCG ...

Beautiful icy bridge, fantastic photos.

Ginny said...

What a pretty place!! I would also love to see a picture of it in the spring, maybe in each season.

ladyfi said...

Lovely shots. And that bridge is very lovely too.

Ida said...

We were thinking alike here today with our bridge/fences. - I really like that 2nd photo.

thirtysevenandcounting said...

I was wondering about that last night, if our local creek would freeze with the windchill being minus 30.

These are lovely images of the bridge and landscape.

Thanks for stopping by to comment on my fences. I hope the new year is starting out well for you!

What a tranquil, beautiful winter scene.

Photo Cache said...

i like the angle it was photographed in on image 1.

Gemma Wiseman said...

Pretty little bridge style. And love the touch of enigmatic blues in the water beneath.

Sarah Beth said...

Love this! You just have to wonder where the water will take you!
Stay warm!

barbara l. hale said...

Seems like it's cold all over the north. We live in the northeast USA and they say that the high for the day will be 7 degrees F. which according to the calculator I've seen on line is -13 or so C. Brrrrr! We are currently in Florida where people are complaining about the cold. It's about 4 degrees C. Seems pretty balmy to me. That's a beautiful bridge scene!

Inger said...

The second photo is gorgeous, so wintry. I really like the curves in it.

Inger said...

I love the curves in the second photo and the wintry feel of both.

cieldequimper said...

I want snow and a bridge!!!

Kay said...

Both the river and the bridge are lovely. Many of our more modern bridges aren't as graceful.
It looks as if the river's giving it a good try to freeze at the edges. That cold blast may indeed finish it off. Stay warm!

Naquillity said...

i can relate to the cold weather you're having as it was 0 degrees here this morning and was only supposed to be a high of 7. personally i can't wait for warmer weather... love your photos. have a great night~

Yogi♪♪♪ said...

I love the graceful arc of the bridge. I don't do cold too well.

Jennifer A. Jilks said...

Wasn't it cold???
We had -25 overnight.
I love your photos. I remember being to Pefferlaw. I just like the name.
Keep warm!

Felicia said...

such beautiful light and wonderful images.

Debbie said...

ooohhh what a beautiful view!!

Stephanie said...

Beautiful bridge and view!

Jack said...

It is a nice little bridge. To my eye, the second photo is the better one. Stay warm, EG.

Chandra said...

Hi Tina,
Very beautiful winter scenes, but I know it is cold as heck. The same arctic is hanging out in our neck of the woods too, I reckon; for, we are in the teens overnight and the high today was 30 deg. F.

Stay warm!

Peace :)

Bob Scotney said...

I always like bridges so it's good to see one where care has been taken to make concrete more interesting. The road bridge in the town near where I live was buit originally in the 1410.

Susan said...

These are absolutely beautiful!

Indrani said...

Lovely captures, started loving snow more now after experiencing it in Greece. :)
