Winter’s Last Grip on Hockley


The snow clings to the landscape from the Tom East side trail in Hockley Valley Provincial Nature Reserve. New spring growth can be seen where the snow has receded on the valley floor.

Your Eyes are Getting Heavy …


This hypnotizing spiral is on the fence that keeps visitors safe at Niagara Fall’s Table Rock viewing area. The ice has formed from the mist from the Falls.

The Good Ol’ Hockey Game


The mill pond in Alton is cleared and ready for the next hockey game on the ice. About as Canadian as you get in winter.
