South March Highlands, ON
I’m always amazed how nature changes so fast. And lucky to catch the last of the seasons display.
Bursting with colour and warmth only two weeks ago, winter has arrived with advancing greys, dampness and pale light.
The shift is sometimes so rapid it astounds me. Massive blocks of air sweeping down from the arctic while the sun, low on the horizon, does it’s best to provide light. Gone is the thought of heat in it’s rays. Any warmth we might see from now on, will come from giant oceans far away to the south.
There’s already more than 2″ of ice on the water and the woods are virtually silent. Eeven in the mid-afternoon.
The world looks different now with the stark structure of land beginning to emerge from the trees.
