A Cold Blast Of The Best Weather

I have some snowy shots for you today. Dundonald Park is in Centretown, near to where I live. This first shot is in early January.

One snowy evening, I took these two shots, a few streets apart, in Centretown.

The following day, I passed through the Glebe, photographing this view of a side street, waiting to be cleared.

A few minutes later, I photographed this view of the stadium at Lansdowne in the early morning light, with snow on the field.

This was taken on a different day back in Centretown, where piles of snow were accumulated on the sides of the road. These are removed in the days that follow a snowstorm, though it can take time.

Here we have three views of Dundonald Park, taken one sunny day.

And I finish with these shots at Dow's Lake, part of the Rideau Canal skateway. The wooded area on the far shore is the Arboretum.


  1. ...this weather is right up your alley, my friend.

  2. You have to promise me that the winter weather will keep you there and not send to the Netherlands! Most of the flowers woke up here! Will be a disaster if the snow and ice come here ...

  3. I go with Ella. Love the last shot.

  4. You have snow !! I haven't seen a snowflake this year ! But flowers are start to bloom ! Far too early !

  5. We miss the snow here this year, at least I can watch your photos.

  6. Snow can have so many looks. I actually like a snowy winter.

  7. Hello, it does look like winter there, lots of snow. Enjoy your day, wishing you a happy weekend ahead.

  8. The narrowing of roads by piling the snow at the sides makes me crazy.

  9. Wonderful to see all those snowy winter shots.

  10. I’d like to have a picnic in those chairs!

  11. Oh wow! Looks amazing William, could not be more different from my weather if it tried! Looks particularly beautiful when the sun is shining too. That last shot is a gem ✨

  12. Thanks for sharing your very snowy photos, reminding me of what wintertime life is like elsewhere!

  13. How nice to live so near the park. I love the last photo of the adirondack chairs by the lake.

  14. We have no snow left here now. It has been a crazy winter!

  15. You gave me a little chill. Brrr.

  16. Many great winter scenes and it's of your favorite...snow!

  17. @Tom: it certainly is.

    @Lady Fi: so do I.

    @Ella: that would be.

    @Francisco: thank you.

    @Iris: I may have to use it next winter for my winter header.

    @Gattina: we're having a bit of an odd winter regardless.

    @David: it certainly feels like winter today.

    @Marianne: I enjoy showing it all.

    @Janis: I do as well.

    @Eileen: thank you.

    @Anvilcloud: it makes it hard to navigate at times as a pedestrian.

    @Jan: a pleasure to show it.

    @Marie: it would make for a cold seat!

    @Grace: sunny days are rare in winter.

    @Barbara: it's typical here.

    @Jeanie: I do as well.

    @RedPat: that it has.

    @Sharon: that's the idea.

    @Stefan: that appears to be the consensus.

    @Red: always my favourite.

  18. Those Muskoka chairs are very tempting. Very nicely located.

  19. Too cold for this Desert Rat. Tweeted.

  20. I enjoyed today, sunshine in the cold!

  21. @Catarina: definitely.

    @Mari: cold is good.

    @Jennifer: we've had a few sunny days.

    @Happyone: thank you.

    @Maywyn: thanks!

    @Joanne: they are.

  22. Such lovely shots. I enjoy winter, but it's much nicer to see it in pictures than to try to navigate around in it. Love those chairs, too. :-)

  23. I enjoy winter and these shots reminded me of the snow that's no longer here on the ground. My favorite was the last shot of the 3 chairs as if they were waiting for people to sit in them.

    1. Probably a better idea to sit in other seasons, though, as the seats are snow covered!

  24. I love your first shot.
    Snow...and more snow. You're in your element, aren't you?

  25. So fast its winter again. Like to see the white snow, but not to feel the cold of winter.

  26. Wow! That certainly is a big 'cold blast' ~ great snow shots ^_^

    Happy Moments to You,

  27. Impressive building and I like all the snow pictures.

  28. The last photo is spectacular!

  29. Great photographs here William … but my favourite is your last one.

    All the best Jan
