It was the best of times………

Dawn

A pinkish-blue haze — the early morning of December 30, 2012 — on the shore of Lake Ontario just west of Sunnyside Pavillion.

Birds nestle on the shore of Lake Ontario, just west of Sunnyside Pavillion

Birds nestle at the water’s edge; an ice-blue tinge casting a quiet spell over the snow and sky.

The sun peeks over the horizon bathing the lake in a warm glow.

The sun peeks over the horizon, bathing the lake in warm, liquid gold.  

Enough poetry. This peaceful scene belies the mayhem that rained down upon this exact spot just 24 hours earlier when….

 It was the worst of times….

Taken with my prime lens in the darkness just before sunrise...

Hurricane snow…. the early morning of December 29, 2012 — pitch dark on the shore of Lake Ontario just west of Sunnyside Pavillion. 

A full abstract with a hint of path and trees.

I trudge to the water’s edge; a black-and-white-and-sepia-tone tinge casting a surreal abstract over the snow and sky.

Took this one from the car...it was cold, my fingers were numb and the sun wasn't coming up anytime soon. Misjudged that one. I got stuck in the parking lot, tires spinning for 10 minutes, me cursing and rocking (with the manual transmission) went home to find these abstracts. The End.

The snow falls furiously, bathing the lake in giant polka dots.  The End.
