Winter Abstract

Winter Abstract
Have a camera, a snow storm that imprisons you inside for days and an uncleaned window (so that snow and ice can easily attach to it) then you can have almost endless fun to while the time away. Believe me...

After the Storm...

After the Storm...
Two days after, from a vantage point, I was able to see all the way down the street and noticed a lone figure diligently removing the snow...

Snow Storm of 2012

Snow Storm of 2012
This was the view from my "man cave" in the afternoon of Dec 27th -- about 1/3 of the basement window were covered with snow! I was contemplating between digging out and fortifying the left-over eggnog with more rum. The drinks won handily!

Snow Storm of 2012

Snow Storm of 2012
On the 27th of December a storm visited us and left 46 cm of snow as a gift!

Fresh Spring... Into Snow

Fresh Spring... Into Snow
Early spring, freshly new grass and a "dusting" of spring snow... Boy, we're ready for summer!

(Despite the sarcastic tone in the previous line, April 28th is not the latest in the season that I've seen snow -- my record is May 1st!!!)

Fragrance Petals on White Snow

Fragrance Petals on White Snow
Budding since early-November, my Oncidium Twinkle (a hybrid) waited until the first snow of December to compete for supremacy in white. By the way, these blossoms are about the size of a baby's fingertip and their fragrance is heavenly vanilla!

Blue Icicles

Blue Icicles
To have icicles formed on an eave it takes some heat to melt the snow in a very cold day -- as the water falling off the roof, it would be quickly frozen to form a growing spike pointing downward. The recent spell of very sunny days, plus the temperature…

Blue Brasil

Blue Brasil
I came home from a long day, and a much longer week. There was a fresh coat of snow on the ground and a bluest blue colour was descending on the street. I snapped this picture as the song "Aquarela do Brasil" (aka "Brazil" in English), sung by Elis Regi…

Les patineurs sur Lac aux Castor

Les patineurs sur Lac aux Castor
Sunday afternoon skaters on the frozen Lac aux Castor (or Beaver Lake, actually a largish man-made pond) up Mount Royal. (Despite its name and the fact that almost every native Montrealers calls it "The Mountain", Mount Royal is just a hill that barely t…

On the Other Side my Snow Queen was Undressing for the Evening*

On the Other Side my Snow Queen was Undressing for the Evening*
Actually, it's the ice crystals formed on the outside of one of my windows. The other side, hence, is the freezing cold outdoor and anyone who dares just to think of undressing, let alone doing it, is more than deserved the title "Snow Queen".

(After po…

Tree & Snow*

Tree & Snow*
The late afternoon lighting casts a blue tint over the whole scene. The tree trunk acts as a shield against the wind and thus creates a perfectly round indentation on the snow.

Stairway into White*

Stairway into White*
The stairway leading to a higher part of my backyard is completely under snow, except for its handrails.

(Despite having lived in many, many large cities all over the globe, I still have the dream of wearing cloths dried on a line hang in the fresh bre…

Snow & Shadows

Snow & Shadows
A scene that is so Montreal: snowy, sunny, blisteringly cold yet the stairs are outside and treacherously spiral!

I deliberately overexposed to convey the bleakness of the winter-y scene. Sharp eyes should be able to notice a clothes line at the lower-…

The Hedge Wears White in a Storm*

The Hedge Wears White in a Storm*
The Arctic air from the North collided with a super wet system coming up from the Gulf of Mexico last night and gave us not just only our first "official" snow but icy rain as well. This 8-foot high hedge was half bent over by all the snow and ice accumu…
