On The Ice Surface

 I proceeded on, walking along the ice from the university towards where Dow's Lake opened up, photographing the Canal ice and the Arboretum as I went along.


A look back showed how far I'd come from the vicinity of the Hartwell Locks.

  4. I clicked on your photos to enlarge them, and enjoyed them very much. I especially like the bridge.
    Have a blessed day!

  5. Always good to go outside, no matter the weather, but frankly... I´m glad our snow is gone.
    I still have some pics to share, too, though - maybe in summer when it hopefully gets stinkin' hot!

  7. Two days ago I noticed Snowdrops in the backyard and the ice has gone from most of the waterways - and by mid March that is fine by me!

    @Gattina: eventually we'll get there.

    @Sami: for the moment.

    @Italiafinlandia: thanks!

    @Eileen: thank you.

  11. Oh that definitely looks like a cold walk. I always feel very nervous to walk on ice, but all those skaters can't we wrong!

  12. Is it comfortable to walk so much on snow capped streets?

  13. Not many people around, it looks cold...

  15. I know that you love winter but I have to admit that I'm impressed by how long you can stay out in the cold.

  16. I'm glad that you turned around at the end, and started back!

  17. It's not only the live and snow, but the skies are great as well.

  20. @Gemel: thank you.

    @Carol: thanks!

    @Shammickite: I never have a problem on Canal ice.

    @Magiceye: this is comfortable. I tend to be wary on sidewalks, actually, always looking for a thin glaze of ice. That seems more slippery.

    @Karl: it was a cold day.

    @RedPat: we've got another day of above average temperatures here. Tomorrow evening apparently the temperatures drop like a rock.

    @Red: this is quite an arboretum.

    @Sharon: I love it.

    @Maywyn: thanks!

    @Barbara: it had been a long, long walk.

    @Jan: I think so too.

    @Marie: that's true.

    @Beth: it was good exercise.

  21. Looks like a stretch where you might be able to build up some speed.

  22. Such lovely wintry scenes.

    All the best Jan

  23. No hills to walk up and down makes for a nice walk.
