I have been walking 4 to 5 km everyday to lose weight and get into shape. I love weekends because I can go for my walk in the morning rather than when I get home from work. Everything seems so much more fresh and bright in the morning and it is such a nice way to start the day. Last night there was a heavy snowfall. The flakes were big and fluffy. This morning the sky was clear making last nights snowfall sparkle. So before I got down to serious walking I grabbed my camera and spent 30 minutes enjoying the scenes given to me. All of these images are from along our lane way. When I walk the lane and am treated to these kind of views I realize how blessed I am to live where I do.
For the last couple of months a lot of folks have been complaining about the snow and cold. While I do not like cold I do love the snow and snowfalls like last night (as long as I do not have to drive anywhere). I always feel there is something magical about a nice snowfall and then a blue sky with the temperature rising like today. The fresh snow covers the old and creates a clean slate.
I also surprised our local cow moose and her calf. They were on the neighbour’s front yard, enjoying the tasty bushes the neighbours have planted. I don’t think they expected anyone would be out bothering them early on a Sunday morning.
Of course I was able to use the polarizer on all the shots to enhance the blue sky. I did very little photoshopping on these images other than a little exposure adjusting.
