Private Pond/ Watery Wednesday

Yep, there's ice under that snow. This pond isn't very deep but I still wouldn't trust the ice enough to walk on it yet. Besides it would spoil the pristine look.

Pristine is right. Looks like something right out of Norman Rockwell.

Great shot!

East Gwillimbury WOW! I love the looks of your area even more with snow. So clean!

Tarolino said...

That is so wonderful. I'm glad you did not walk on it before the shot. Unspoilt nature at its best and baking in the sun. Love the blue reflections too. Great composition.

I know, its nice seeing no tracks anywhere in the snow accept for the occasional animals prints to follow to a nearby burrow.

Jan said...

Ditto, what 2sweetnsaxy said, it is like a postcard. I'm glad you didn't try to walk on it, that water's got to be cold. Brrrr.

Snow is beautiful, especially when it remains untouched.

Carletta said...

Very pristine and beautiful!

When my kids were little I wanted them to play in the background and keep the nice fresh snow pristine in the front - didn't always happen as well it shouldn't!

Norm said...

We are in a warming trend so most of our frozen lakes and ponds have lost their ice, or at least their sturdy ice. But they are still beautiful from a distance. - Margy

Well, the ice may be still too thin but that is an amazing landscape!

Darla said...

Beautiful. I'd never guess there was ice under there but I'm in no danger because I wouldn't be walking in any snow to begin with.
Pretty to look at tho.

It is a peaceful scene there that you photographed. Nice.


I still have the old blogs but I also have new ones Abe Lincoln Blogs and also look at Abraham Lincoln's Blog

That is beautiful. My son works in Ontario part time (we live in Va. USA) and he talks about how cold it is. But, you just can't get pictures like that just anywhere.... it has to be cold and left untouched. Thanks for the photo.

Beautiful!!

michael bird said...

Does look like a nice spot and the little bit of sunshine gives it a warmth that it probably doesn't have. Nice.

I agree, there's something so nice about an expanse of unbroken snow.

Yeah, you don't want to spoil the smooth snow on top! it's too pretty!

DeniseinVA said...

It certainly would. This photo is so beautiful.

bobbie said...

this photo is so lovely!

It could be entered in so many memes these days shadow Shot Sunday, or Scenic Sunday, or others. It is certainly appropriate for Watery Wednesday as well.

PERBS said...

I didn't even realize that there was a pond there. Oops! Got to be careful where I walk huh?

Julie said...

No tracks makes it even prettier. Love the shot.
