With the holidays upon us and in the wake of the recent snowfalls we've experienced, there hasn't been as much time as I had hoped to get out to take new photographs. With things being busier at work and home, I also haven't had any time to update this blog. My new year's resolution is to get out more often and take more pictures. Stay tuned and from my family to yours, Happy Holidays & New Year!

Mounds of snow blanket everything as over 100 cms fell over the span of a few days, breaking recent records and creating chaos throughout Cottage Country. Schools remained closed for 3 days straight and many local businesses were forced to close when power outages and dangerous road conditions prevented people from getting to work.

A motorist negotiates a gauntlet of drifting snow and white out conditions. Before freeze-up, snowfalls, combined with moisture contributed by the lake effect, can produce significant amounts, a boon to snowmobilers but the bane of drivers. Drivers must also remain alert for deer that frequent the area during the winter.

In this day and age of extravagance, where more and bigger are better, I was impressed with this scene by its simplicity. A single tree and deer stand on display at the end of a boathouse, illuminated and reflected in the water, captured my attention more than any lavishly decorated place.

December first and the first snow to blanket the landscape following a squall during the night. There is always something special about the first snowfall of the season, and how it makes the transition from drab scenery to one of serenity. I visualized this scene earlier in my travels and wanted to make this my first winter picture.
