Cold. In Pictures.

Cold.I hate that word for so many reasons.
Especially living up here in the far north.
Also known as Canada.
At this time of the year I am sad to say that we are living up to our reputation of wearing toques, living in the snow and surviving in minus gazillion degrees {celsius} weather.
In our homes of course.  No igloos here.
Unless there is an area of town I dont know about.
But anyways, there are no artsy fartsy pictures in this post.
Just scenes of coldness outside of my door because it was too cold to walk anywhere.

Icicle hanging down off of the barn roof.  As you can see, the sun was shining so I caught drips in motion without even trying.  If only I could photograph the stuff I actually try to capture.
Studley. Tummy deep in the snow. I am sure, in his mind he was calling me bad names.
My favourite "cluster" of trees in our back field.

More pictures of cold here.

Brrrr! That made me cold! There's no way I could live up there. No way.

On another note - I have that exact same bench!

I love the first picture of the droplets of water and the picture of the snow drifts. You know it's cold when the snow has been blown by the chilly wind!

Wow! There's just so much snow. I really need to visit a place like this so I can see it in person! I love the photo of your dog in the snow. I love the composition and he's just so cute!

Jen said...

Brrrr! I need a blanket, those are cold. :)

Colleen said...

I love the icicle drips. And the look on your dog's face is great. He doesn't seem to happy with the cold.

Tara said...

Love these, love your icicle and your doggy is too cute!

Jen said...

I just love the cluster of trees, so pretty!

Jane said...

Great photos - I love that first shot with the water droplets captured so perfectly.

Sheri said...

Love the contrast of the dog in the snow!

Stephanie said...

Great photos! My favorite is the one of the drifts. I'm sending you warm thoughts from N.M. Happy day, Momma!

Really like the first one. Isn't it great how you capture awesomeness without trying, but when you try...not so much.
I think your dog shares the same sentiment as mine this winter. :)

great shots this week!!!

I need to go find a coat just after looking at those!! And yes, I do believe your dog is cussing you out in his head. ;)

Cassie said...

Hopping over from you capture. Love your shots - especially the trees and water shots (and why is it so hard to get shots we want when great oops shots seem to happen on their own?). We live in Minnesota and our landscape is currently looking similar to yours! Spring is on it's way!

What are you talking about? These seem artsy fartsy to me. Love the icicle photo. And Studley (of course). But man ... it looks bbbrrrr cold.

Hege said...

Love the picture of the drifts!
