Oh, this water is so cold!








I was down at the Covered Bridge the other day and on a wee bit of the Speed River that wasn't frozen over, it seemed as if he didn't want to get his feet wet or maybe he was saying that the water was so-o-o cold!!!

It's minue 18 C right now here in Guelph and our province has so many roads and highways closed due to blowing snow and so many accidents! I'm glad I am in the house tonight and yes, I felt sorry for this little guy!

Isn't it funny how the same photographer can attract us again and again?
Whenever I look through the up-dated blogs on the CDP page, I am always drawn immediately to your photos without knowing who the photographer is. I wonder what that extra element is that calls me.

This little fella looks like he's skating.

Very cute. I think what catches our eye is that something extra-- if it was just a duck standing there it wouldn't have been as interesting, but with the one foot up..it gives it that something extra!

Nice photo shot of the lovely duck. He is cute and I bet the water must really be very cold.

I at first thought, DANCE. Then I realized how cold it was. It might be difficult to feel free enough to dance in frigid weather. But what a wonderful photo, Pat.

It does look cold! I love the reflection in the water.

Jackie said...

yes, I thought dance too, but reading about -18 I suspect your interpretation is the right one!

Brrrr, -18. Maybe I won't complain about the weather here any more (much).
