Still winter

Some people say that there are four seasons in Canada: Almost Winter, Winter, Still Winter, and Road Construction.  If that is the case, I believe we are currently experiencing Still Winter.

Unlike many March snowstorms, last night’s precipitation came not in the form of large wet flakes that clung to every surface and clothed the trees in robes of white.  Rather, the chilly temperatures brought tiny crystals of drifting snow that, carried by gusting icy winds, created quite another kind of beauty.

Stephen and I dared to venture out with our cameras late last night.  Finding only partial shelter just within the barn door, we quickly learned that lens hoods can be used to keep out things other than direct beams of sunlight!

Sadly, by the time I was set up for this shot, the wind was dying down.

The cows seemed grateful to come indoors for the night.



This morning, Evelyn took a look out her window…


… while I went out to check the electric fence and try practising some of what I learned during the photography workshop.


Will it keep the cows in?

Can you find our picnic table in the picture below?


Thank you, Lord, for the marvels of winter!
