Spring has been a lingering affair this year with a greater than usual repetition of melting and freezing events. A few weeks ago, I meandered into the Seine River Forest and made a few images of ice that formed on pools and puddles at the edge of the trees as well as images of the melting ice on the Seine River itself. The late afternoon sun created a lovely contrast between warm and cool colors. Click on the main image to see the other images in the gallery.
Spring has arrived and, as is usually the case, weather varies considerably from one day to the next. In Winnipeg we are currently on our second 'snow free' period and we'll see how long this one lasts! Last weekend, I took a stroll in the Seine River forest and captured these images of early spring, leaves trapped in ice after the first thaw.

My bedroom drapes, normally a plain beige colour, were transformed into a tapestry the other evening as the setting sun shone through the drapes backlighting some frost that had formed on the window the previous evening as temperatures plummeted to about -27 degrees Celsius.

I ventured out onto the Seine River this past weekend. It's always a thrill to walk on the ice before it becomes blanketed with snow. It hasn't been particularly cold yet so I was a little apprehensive. I followed the deer tracks and came upon this tiny leaf amidst the ice pattern.

Master of camouflage! It was so darn cold on the tundra that I don't blame it for hiding.
