We'd heard that waves were rolling in down at the shore. We've never lived in a community right on the Great Lakes shoreline, so we find it fascinating how things change over the seasons.
We started out downtown where I amused myself taking a couple of pictures of Meaford Hall and the old fire station, the biggest highlights of Meaford's architecture in my opinion. Did you notice the pigeons?
We paused by the inner harbour to view the 'pancake' ice. When the temperature is cold enough to freeze the water, but slight movement breaks it up, the resulting ice flows or pans float around and bump into each other. This accounts for the bits of broken ice around the edges of the 'pancakes', a very common pattern in the winter here.
Down the street we stopped by what is a small protected beach for children in the summer. Lots of ice from water splashing up.
Then I started trying to capture some splashing waves. You could watch the big waves rolling in for some time before getting a big splash.
We moved to where we could see the waves rolling around the point of the small protective breakwater, and then I got a good couple of photos. I ended up with a lot of pictures, do you're going to see more over the next few days.
Cool splashes. I didn't see the pigeons until you pointed them out. You live in a very lovely place. :-)ReplyDelete
Beautiful images of all the ice!!ReplyDelete
You got some great photographs here :)ReplyDelete
All the best Jan
It's always interesting how, in winter, rock pigeons always seem to pick the most exposed places and then perch near, but not too near, each other. Good photos of the waves breaking on the rocks and beautiful ice formations.ReplyDelete
Is it unusual for Georgian Bay to be ice free at this time of year?ReplyDelete
The winter ice formations you show or fascinating.ReplyDelete
It's great to see the waves through your eyes. I don't want to feel the cold or chills in person but from the warmth of CA this winter, I'm good. :)ReplyDelete
Spiky grass, stalactite icicles, and water in motion, love every photo, I really had to focus with both eyes looking very hard to find the pigeons. ( Cataracts do not help). They must like the ridge for a perching place.ReplyDelete
I'm amazed how trees manage to survive those conditions. Great captures of the waves breaking.ReplyDelete
Fantastic wave photos! Brrr, it looks so frigid!💖ReplyDelete
