I promised you some more pictures of the icy shoreline on Georgian Bay in Meaford, so here they are. Taken on Friday when we had one of those rare sunny days. The weather since has been hovering just above zero, the snow is turning to fog and drizzle!
It wasn't very rough on Friday, and it doesn't take much of a splash to throw water up over the rocks.
In a corner near the harbour you could easily watch how the water would splash on the boulders of the breakwater, leaving ice coating everything above.
In fact you had to be careful not to stand too close, both to avoid the splashes, and to avoid the ice-coated boulders.
Never-the-less, I thought it was very beautiful, a little ephemeral treasure thrown up for our enjoyment by nature - I wonder how many others noticed!
I liked these curly-cues, as well as the ice-covered shrubs. I'm sure the scenery here changes a lot with the weather too - these are probably gone by now.
I think I have enough blue in these
pictures to link to Blue Monday:
It was actually a very beautiful Friday!
Wow - cool ice sculptures! Thanks for showing us more.ReplyDelete
Now those are some beautiful shots. Thanks for sharing these.ReplyDelete
The ice is quite magical! It was a lovely snow storm with so little wind that there were all kinds of strange sculptures made by nature.ReplyDelete
Beautiful! I think those sculptures in the last picture look like pelican beaks! :-)ReplyDelete
Stunning - such contrast in the photos. I've never seen this before. We are right on the ocean but don't get the freezing temperatures very often that would create such a sight.ReplyDelete
Wow that is gorgeous!!! WOW.ReplyDelete
Mother Nature has superb artistic skills.ReplyDelete
Fantastic photos ! I love the way the ice forms and freezes on everything . Rain and green here still even our lake Erie down this way is clear of ice . Thanks for sharing have a good day !ReplyDelete
Absolutely beautiful! Nature paints a beautiful picture, doesn't it!ReplyDelete
Oh, these are really a nice set of photos! Love all that snow and frost.ReplyDelete
You sure do have enough blue to play with us! Gorgeous shots! Thanks for sharing today.
Happy 1st Blue Monday!
Those are wonderful, and much safer for everyone than a full-scale ice storm.ReplyDelete
Amazing photos. A visual treat.
This is great stuff. If you just take the time to stop and look nature dishes up fabulous art every day. In the last picture the image at the far right vaguely resembles a pelican's head.ReplyDelete
Those are some grand photos! What lovely images you captured. Thanks for sharing. Enjoy your week.ReplyDelete
Oh I love the icy coverings... BeautifulReplyDelete
I've taken icy shots along waterways nearby but haven't checked out any "big" lakes to see what the wave action can do to the shoreline. I'll have to look into it! I might get bored enough to drive up to the U.P. this winter, who knows?ReplyDelete
