Putting winter on ice

The lake is now water

And the cold spring is just waiting to burst into flower and warmth (sometime soon, I hope).

But before that, I wanted to post one of my favourite photos from this winter.

The purple sunset over the iced over lake

And Oscar looking majestic.

  12. Oscar saying good-bye to winter. With relief?

    April 27, 2013 at 18:42

  13. He IS a majestic dog!!!

  14. Oscar looks like such a fine character!
    Our lakes are still very frozen.. 2 or more feet of ice currently, more to the north. But we’ve hit a warm up, and the sun is shining STRONG.. things have been melting fast in the past 24 hours! Our kids got a kayak out to float on all the melting water that is running to & filling the top of our frozen pond. :)

  15. Oh you mean he doesn’t feel the cold at his behind? When your cold is lingering and your winter overstaying, our dry season temperature keeps on soaring, it is now 36.6C and might still go up. It is maybe easier for Oscar to stay in that cold than us staying outside the building. Global warming is really already here!

  16. Oscar is a perfect center piece!

    April 27, 2013 at 19:30

  17. Oscar’s golden orangey coat perfectly counterpoints the lavender snow – you have a great eye for a shot!

    April 27, 2013 at 19:48

  18. A fantastic image!

    His beautiful presence adds to all the other beauty in the image. I’m always fascinated by the colour. It’s going to be good to see the lake again. Waiting for that image.

  26. Thats a right word in this case – majestic! Must be important to have a fur coat under such circumstances as well!
