Burlington Lakeshore

Ahh, the brisk wind that whipped in off the lake was anything but comfortable. It was biting and would numb your fingers in seconds. The brief moment that I took my fingers out of my sleeves and had to manipulate the camera to capture a single exposure was anything but fun, however the photos, they were worth it. 

I warmed up fairly quickly by making sure I was always moving, but I found that the sun, as weak as it was, did help a bit. The blue skies and bright light did make you feel better, even if it was just for show and wasn't actually super warm.  One good thing, it wasn't snowing or raining!

The ice that had formed all over the bollards and chain was pretty cool, but the moment that really stood out was seeing the geese standing in the water.... sleeping..

I mean.. Really?  at -20C and they're sleeping in the water.. It's really weird to see that, but I guess when you're made to be able to take bitter freezing temperatures in the water, it's not going to phase you.  But sleeping? Crazy!

But enough typing.. here are the images from the Lakeshore..

It was a cold, but fun New Year's day...

It was a really cold morning, there were a couple of camera malfunctions, probably to do with the cold weather, but in the end, everything was sorted out and we both got a roll or two finished off..

Until next time, keep those shutters firing!
