A Perpetual Astonishment
Every spring is the only spring, a perpetual astonishment. ~ Ellis Peters
a Perpetual Astonishment
At Home on the Pond
A female merganser swims through the reflection of a house on an urban pond.
Coming in for a Landing
Mute swan lands in Collingwood Harbour.
By the Pond
House reflection on the pond.
I think this is the same pair of mute swans I followed last year, They appear to be staking out the same territory although it is quite changed this Spring.
Ice melting in Collingwood Harbour.
Rain this past weekend and warming temps are breaking up the ice along the shoreline.
Walking on Water
This was open water last week.
One of my favourite area beaches in summer, it's pretty icy at the moment.
In Search of Open Water
As I lay on the dock taking photos of the ice in Collingwood Harbour I heard the distinct sound of swan wings. I manged to sit up in time for one quick shot.
This woman celebrated the first day of Spring along the waterfront at Sunset Point.
It may not look like it but I took this photo on the first day of Spring.
We had virtually no ice on the bay this winter, but with Spring came bitterly cold winds, freezing the waves that battered the shoreline, leaving mounds of ice in their wake.
I often see people hiking along the waterfront, coffee in hand to ward off the cold. I just wish the cups could find their way to a garbage can.
