Frigid Temperatures

Posted by
Lee (Fort Frances Ontario, Canada) on 4 January 2010 in Landscape & Rural and Portfolio.

Thank you to everyone for the lovely and meaningful comments. I hope 2010 finds each one of you in good health. All is well here in the frigid north country of Ontario. As you can see from this shot, hoar frost abounds when the temperature dips well below zero. The water remains open in this particular spot due to the current. It makes for interesting shots.

This shot was taken only a few hours later than the last post I made.

Thank you for visiting my site. I consider myself to be lucky living where I do. Everyday I wake up to a wealth of interesting visual scenarios. Most of my pictures are Wildlife and Nature taken from around the area. The area specifically being Fort Frances Ontario on beautiful Rainy Lake. Feel free to comment on what you see. I look forward to hearing from you. If you like what you see, please rate it. Better yet, bookmark the site and drop back often. I will be posting daily.

That is beautiful, we don't get anything like that here in the UK.

Which is probably good since the whole country comes to a standstill with an inch of snow!
