It was so pleasant to get out and take a few photos without worrying about numb fingers: just take my time setting up this and that angle. It's the little things, eh?
There were touches of snow in the woods and in shaded spots, which, I think, added a nice touch to photos that can be a bit drab at this time of year.
|This is a bend in the Crowe River near Glen Alda, just a few miles up the road from the cottage.|
|And this is a stand of beech trees that provided a spot of colour on the Glen Alda Road.|
|After taking the above photos, I stopped at the little bridge over the Crowe and chanced upon this Northern River Otter, who was almost as taken with me as I was of him. But not quite, for he soon had enough of me and went under for good.|
Brian and I took a leisurely drive on Saturday afternoon and stopped to take quite a few pictures, including the next three.
|The Lower Faraday Community Centre: likely once a school house and quite possibly not used as a community centre for quite some time.|
|A little island in the little lake off highway 62, south of Bancroft. The lake was still ice-covered.|
|Just a shed by the side of the road with Brian doing what it takes to get the shot.|
|We found a very interesting piece of equipment.|
|Brian in the reeds: this is where I took the photo of the island, earlier in this post.|
|This was the final stop on our little photographic jaunt at Robinson Lake.|
|Both this and the previous shot were primarily processed in Snapseed on my iPad. I did darken this one a little bit more when I saw it on the computer, just to enhance the silhouette effect.|
Coming home, yesterday, we stopped at a gas station in Madoc, which is ~45mins from the cottage. I was quite impressed (for want of a better word) with this signage. I have a niggling feeling that this guy isn't happy with the local politicians. Of course I could be wrong. lol I see the property is for sale. Any takers?
