The Third Stop

I know that I'm sort of cheating by using about an hour's worth of photography into three separate posts, but c'mon man, it's January. If January in Canada isn't an excuse for just about anything, then I don't know what it. And just wait until February when cabin fever really seeps into the soul.

Anyway, after I jumped off left the bridge in the previous post, I got into the car and headed the relatively short distance to the park. The eastern end looked like this.

The keen-sighted amongst y'all may see that there is no path along the path as it were, so AC, being a chicken-liver at heart went back to the car and drove to the west end.

There really wasn't much doing there either, but I did take one by the ramp where cars load or unload their boats into the water — not just now of course.

So, I turned around where there is an old, original log house on the other side of the road. But this time, I didn't shoot the house but the adjacent shack. What really drew me was the satellite dish by the shack.

Nice enough light there, but I decided to have a look in mono, and I like that too. It's got a very different vibe, but I still like it.

And that, ladies and germs, is how you get three blog posts for the price of one. Now what?

Winter in Canada can be such a challenge, even to a blogger. Love the second photo. The blue...incredible.

Wonderful stuff all around. I've been working a lot and have missed noting you. I've caught up now and must say, this cabin and you after the sledding fall are both great shots. :) Happy new year to all of you.

Brilliant! Well done!! Good job!!!

I had to enlarge to find the satellite dish though. I was wondering whether you had digitally removed it and then there it was!

Nice job. I never do black and white. Dunno why. Maybe winters are so bad.

I like winter in Canada, John, and wish there was a bit more winter here in Nashua, NH.

You do take really wonderful photos, John. Since I'm not seeing any winter scenes here in Hawaii, I'm loving these.
