Whitby Late December

Entrance to Whitby Harbour in late December

It was chilly with no ice. The temperature has dropped a LOT since then but I have not yet been back to check out the ice, which I suspect is there now.

Lake Simcoe, January 5, 2016

In contrast, this photo was made yesterday at Jackson's Point. Yep, that's ice on the rocks and in the shallow end of the bay there.

I am joining Wednesday Waters HERE.

Great views over the water, winter is slowly coming closer.

Blogoratti said...

Wonderful scenery, so relaxing it seems.

Nancy Chan said...

Both are lovely views but the second one better especially with the ice on the rocks.

Rose said...

That first shot looks so lonely...the second makes me cold just to look at it.

genie said...

Both shots are so pretty but look oh, so cold. There is on one out on the pier. That had to tell you something....BRRRRRR.

You're just TRYING to make me feel cold, right? We Floridians don't like cold. (just saying...we put on parkas when it drops below 70)

I can live with the -5 temps, but the -18 temps are a bit too much!! Lovely photos, very arctic looking!

Sandra said...

it is beautiful with the bright sun shining on the ice....

Maks said...

Love to see your winter images when it's 39C here EG, they have a psychological cooling effect :)

Brrrrrrrrr!

Pamela Gordon said...

Beautiful shots. The cold has been slow in coming this season but it's here now. Brrr.

Kathy said...

The first photo is a beautiful landscape. Frame it!

Lowell said...

Nice photography, EG! In both cases. I have a feeling that winter will be arriving in all its glory fairly soon and ice will be the norm... :)

Mary Hone said...

Such a contrast with the blue water and ice.

Marleen said...

Lovely place, even though it's cold.

Cranberry Morning said...

Beautiful, but the second is my favorite. Winter is beautiful. I keep telling myself that, because we have a long one ahead of us. :-)

William Kendall said...

Beautiful shots! The cold has finally settled in here too.

VP said...

I really like the first picture, there is a certain feeling to it...

Old Man Winter finally arrived eh?

RedPat said...

It may be melting today, EG!

Stephanie said...

Beautiful scenery.

Jennifer A. Jilks said...

I'm so happy for it to get colder. It was coming, we knew it, but it just hasn't felt right! I can't get onto the wetland yet!

Love your photos!

Linda said...

Looks cold! I'm cold here in Virginia. Winter arrived suddenly so I haven't adjusted.

orvokki said...

Looks really lovely view. And I guess there is not SO cold yet beacause there is no ice on the whole water...
We have just now -24,9 C (in this morning) Brrr.. I don't go out.

Margaret Adamson said...

Lovely views but ice on the rocks! Wow!

Susan Anderson said...

I love the serenity of that first photo.

=)

diane b said...

Great shots! Is that Whitby in England and where is Jackson's Point?

Aimeecakes said...

I love the way the sky and the water blend into each other in that first shot

Amy at love made my home said...

Brrr!!! It looks very cold even without snow and ice! xx

Jeevan said...

Superb capture on both the images! Seems the snow/ice slowly filling up the landscape and lake

cieldequimper said...

Oh! I should have looked at these before! Love the 'white' first pic and of course, the ice... Ahhh, ice!

Jack said...

There is something about the light that screams, "Cold!"

Gemma Wiseman said...

There is a haunting sense of lonely quiet in the first scene. And amazing to see ice by water under blue skies in the second scene.
