Not long ago, during winter's coldest months, west of Toronto, along the shores of Lake Ontario, we used to get beautiful ice formations.
We did not get any, of significant interest, for the past two years...Global Warming Effect?
The formations used to happen during very cold days and nights with high winds. The waves of Lake Ontario splashed against the shores, freezing immediately on rocks, trees and shrubs thus forming strange and interesting shapes of ice. Then, if we were lucky, with the adding of some fresh snow, the landscape became even more spectacular.
Most of the time, when I visited the place, there was no one around and that made the visits more enjoyable, in spite of the cold temperatures. The swans and the other water birds looked comfortable in the frigid water. Toronto's skyline was very interesting seen from so far away.
Here are some of my favourite shots.
