We took Bart to the Royal Botanical Gardens on Sunday. We'd been on the 17th of March when it was 15C. Interesting to see just how quickly it has all frozen over again. Also, was shooting most of these photos blind - it really was just point and shoot - no looking and studying - couldn't see the screen on the back of the camera because of the light - makes me miss the days of the hooded view-finders. Am going to share some of these shots as a public reminder that I need to do a bit of investigating in order to do a better job of framing when the light is sooooo brilliant.
Perfect sticky snowman making snow here & made me wish I had skis again - perfect spring conditions.
This sort of gives you an idea of the brightness of the day.
Down below - absolutely no definition or shades of colour in those trees to the left - look like a big black blob as the camera squints to do its job.
Kevin & I had hoped to find the swans again - perhaps they're hidden in the snow.
Remove the blue from the top of this photo & it's almost been reduced to a black and white photo.
The pathway of an ice-breaking waterbird...and below at the base of a tree, a little bit of hope that spring is just around the corner.
