In 2018, snow sculptures in the Byward Market were of a transportation theme, with the LRT and a city bus emerging from walls of snow.
A classic view of Dow's Lake, with Muskoka chairs on the east shore.
Down on the lake, preparations were being made for the annual bed races, a long tradition for Winterlude. I didn't stay, but got to photograph some of these up close. They ranged from the colourful but basic frame.
To things with unusual decoration motifs.
Snow falling over the Rideau Canal downtown in the evening, and skaters below.
Another day on the Canal saw me down on the ice surface. I was in the Glebe,
Downtown again, this view from the Mackenzie King Bridge looks southeast.
And this looks northeast, under different conditions from that one a few shots up.
Further upstream and back in the Glebe, a look at the Patterson Creek inlet, an ideal spot for learning how to skate before going out onto the Canal proper.
From within the inlet, a look under the graceful bridge leading onto the Canal. We pick up here tomorrow.
