Bond Head Light

 NOT snow but ice created by splashing waves on the light and pier

Yep, overcast skies.  But we have had some sun here, although not the day I took these photos.
True, this light is getting a bit rusty...but at least it still works.


 A little further back

I didn't walk all the way down the pier to take this photo but zoomed in on it. Trust me, it was icy and very slippery. The only critters brave enough to walk on the ice were gulls!   (Can you see one there?) I was standing on concrete and, although it was windy and cold, I was on firm ground. It snowed last night (and is still snowing today) so I'm sure it looks a bit different now.

 New snow on coneflowers

Anyone else thinking "Coneheads" right now?

I love the color of this light!! And I have never seen anything like this, it is truly amazing. But the ice is on the wrong side! The side way from the waves! The side nearest the water is bare!! Hmmm, maybe this is an illusion because we can't really see the other side. In any case, it is truly spectacular.

That ice at the Lighthouse is amazing and the last shot is superb.

At least you are getting out. This winter weather is keeping me close to home.

Joan Elizabeth said...

I love the cone flowers ... they look like an iceblock you could buy at the shop.

I can see your world is very different from ours ... snow is a very rare and exciting event in our part of the world.

Leora said...

Your cone flowers have a lot more snow than mine!

eileeninmd said...

Small City Scenes said...

Oh brr that looks very cold. Love the snow on the Coneflowers--where are my rings. Haha
I mentioned you on my blog because you did give me the idea about using older homes on Rubbish Tuesday. We have so many older places here that it will be my focus for a while now.

John @ Sinbad and I on the Loose said...

That is neat. I think you showed something similar last winter. I always enjoy seeing this especially since I don't have to brave the elements to do so. Thanks for sharing it.

Halcyon said...

So beautiful! We got a little snow today, but it's not sticking.

Pat Tillett said...

So cold and kind of scary. I guess that's because we don't really have a winter where I live. Very nice photos!
