I'm writing this on Wednesday morning. We have totally run the weather gamut from 0 degrees C to -22 C, about 5 below F. We started with a wet snow and continued to a heavy cold snow with high winds forming drifts. I'm not even concerned with the wind chill temperature. It's just damn cold, although it is sunny today. I did check the temperature with the windchill,it's -28C or 12 below zero F.
Even Boomer was cold this morning, as I had to stop and take the snow out of his paws. He was quite content to come home, and curl up in his spot.
The initial photos all show the cold. The second one shows the actual colour of the water, which is stained copper from the minerals in the rock. One person said it looked like whiskey, which is certainly an intriguing thought.
And here comes the whimsy with a quick reversal of the cold. This Black Swallow Tail is on a fireweed plant.
I'm not certain what these are, but they were on a forest trail, and look quite warm with the sun back lighting them.
Another Crow shot that I neglected to include in the preceding sequence, so it's back to winter at the Vermilon River.
And of course another squirrel shot. A Post to SWF @ http://skyley.blogspot.com/ HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYONE!!
