As much as I hope for the snow, we have had relatively little this year. Snowflakes aside, I have been trying to keep up with my landscape photography as well but the weather hasn’t cooperated. Even still, I have been able to grab a few great shots so far this season:

The halo and Sun Dogs around the sun are caused by a cloud of ice crystals, and I found it near the Alliston area. I drove there hoping to find snow, but this was a much nicer surprise!

I set my sights on Bracebridge as a snow system was moving in, only for it to move off-course by the time I arrived. I chose my location wisely however – as a back-up I knew that Potts Falls would still be flowing and I was treated to quite the landscape.

Finally, I tried a different approach with this last image. I don’t often create “pan-blur” images, but this is one that I liked. It is an extremely wide angle of view and I rotated the camera to blur the details and make it look painterly. Please tell me your thoughts!

I’ll make a snowflake post soon too 🙂 For those eager to see my snowflake images, I am posting a new one every single day over at Google+, check it out!

    Donny, I absolutely love the sun dog photo. It’s very inspiring and has a soft supernatural quality about it. All 3 photos are spectacular. The trees also have a supernatural feel, and that arch in the center makes me want to go into the picture and see what’s in this magical forest of yours. Very cool.

    Facebook hat mich zu Deinem Profil geschickt, und Du dann hierher.
    Jetzt stehe ich schon wieder vor diesem Bild.
    Vielleicht hast Du ja oben beschrieben, was das ist, oder wie Du es Aufgenommen hast, ich verstehe leider kein Wort. Mein Englisch. 🙁

    Sag doch mal: Was ist das. 🙂

    Thanks very much Aunty Cindy! I have had mixed impressions on the tree photo, but that’s what you get with art 🙂 I’m glad you like them all!

    Ajuna: Das Foto dreht die Kamera. Wenn Sie das Bild, dreht sich die Kamera. die Aussicht ist um 180 Grad. Ich benutze Google Translate, um diese zu schreiben:)
