When it snows in Canada

Well, when in snows in Canada, it pours… Just to paraphrase the well known saying about rain πŸ™‚

I took these two photos below while driving in a snow squall in Ontario. I should better say: while my husband was driving and I was shooting through the windshield from the passenger seat..

Winter driving in Canada

However, contrary to some beliefs, Canadians do not live in igloos and shovel snow all the year long. In the summertime for instance it doesn’t snow at all πŸ™‚

It is true though, that in some years winter comes earlier than expected. It is also true that in some years it can even snow on Mother’s Day… this below is a photo I took in Collingwood, Ontario on the second Sunday of May:

But who doesn’t like winter photos? Good question – I don’t know. What I know is that I love taking them. There are many beautiful images of winter on sunny bright days, and I have some myself. However, as I previously mentioned in my “To Focus or Not to Focus” article, I like to take fuzzy type of weather photos. This is not a problem at all, because when it snows in Canada, all you have to do is get out and shoot πŸ˜‰

My husband and I generally go South for the winter, but there are exceptions. A great opportunity for winter photography! πŸ™‚

This is a photo I took in the parking-lot of a motel we stayed in Ontario during a blizzard. Is it not nice? πŸ˜‰

Lucky enough, we had the opportunity to spend the winter and spring of 2012-13 in Collingwood Ontario. This is a very nice historic Canadian town and area to visit in all seasons. Here you can also find the only serious place in Ontario where you can ski. The ski resort is an European style vacation village called Blue Mountain. It really looks blue when the fog partially covers the trees.

Believe it or not, there was not enough snow that year for the ski season, so they had to use special snow making machines.

I liked this scenery and the fuzziness given by the blowing snow, so I digitally made it as a painting, available in my FAA gallery.

On the slopes, the snow was continuously blown in a thick looking fog. Hard to even see the landscape…

The ski season ended in March in Collingwood, but In April, the winter was back πŸ™‚

Maybe it’s not easy to drive when it snows in Canada, but it’s fun to take photos πŸ™‚ Look at these barns almost covered by a snow blizzard on the side of a highway:

Generally speaking, when it gets too miserable outside it’s better to stay inside…

But when it snows in Canada, let it snow! It can be nice, but there is nothing you can do about it anyway, ha, ha πŸ™‚
