We usually get one or two brief snow dumps out here per season, and this year's is exceptional! We got a little under 2 feet in two days this past weekend. Raining now on Monday, and it will all be gone in a few days as it is returning to well above freezing. Nice to see it come.... nice to see it go! But great fun while it lasted! ;) The images are mostly of our Zachary.... the first is of our neighbor's wee one and a quick portrait of them they asked me to snap while out for our walk on the trail behind our house. Little "K" was MOST responsive to my funny faces... or perhaps face. lol

All with A99ii and Minolta AF80-200 F2.8 G.

Hope all are doing well in these challenging times.

Very best regards

Mike

1. "Listen"


1B "Portrait of a Snow Angel"


2. Casual Portrait


3. "Faceful"


3b. Its an all you can eat buffet!


4.


5. In his own winter world


6.


7. A two minute walk away, the neighborhood decided that their very steep and (still) unplowed residential street was better utilized as a sledding hill.


8. A long climb to the top!


9.



Hope some smiled!


Mike

edits: added a couple pics

Great series, the relatively bright out of focus backgrounds give all the photos a nice and luminous atmosphere. And I agree with Addy on #7.
Mind the bandwidth of others, don't link pictures larger then 1024 wide or 960 pix high, see here

Somehow I had missed this, but via the weekly exhibition I found it . Great series Mike! I notice a similar joy that the snow and ice brought here in the covid times. Certainly it made me smile too. TFS

Wow nice set of images Mike !

I use to visit friends from time to time in Victoria and i also spent a whole winter there (such a nice to live by the way). So it is so surprising to see the amount of snow you guys have ! Almost a shock ! Wow !

Take care,

Jacques

It was quite a happy shock to us too! More even than forecast, its the most snow on the ground I have seen since moving here in 2008. :) And yes, we DO love it here! I don't often miss Ontario.   

Cheers
