      It lingers. Slowly it diminishes. I hope to get some shots of the lake with the “new” camera. We have had much rain & fog in the last couple of days, but very cool, further north they are getting snow still. Here new snowfall only clings to the remaining mounds & bits of ice. if you dig into that brown mound in the first image you would find a dirty snow-cone ice underneath. 🙂

        Very poetic sounding, the first two sentences. New camera? What pray, variety is that?

        A couple of Christmases back my son & wife got me a a used EOS 50D with all sorts of extra stuff ( it has the French manual, but not the English) that intimidated me. My EOs 1000D has gotten ill and I must now depend on the semi-pro camera. My most recent posts feature some shots using the Intimidator – getting used to it. The dull grey weather lends itself to B&W or tonal compositions. may has not been very merry. The fine drizzle falling briefly turned to snow this morning. May the sunshine be with you.

        Sounds challenging, the camera. Suddenly turned very cold here with snow on the ranges to the west of me after 30 C days. Mind you it’s only 6 C overnight but that’s pretty much our deep winter weather not May. Our houses are not built for snow and cold, no central heating or double glazing and I have floor to ceiling glass door and panels as most of my house. Hopefully your summer will come soon.

        Our normals for now should be between 3 to 15 degrees C. We have not been hitting our highs. This evening it may dip down to -2. I am blaming the Tar sands and related industries. 🙂

        -2 ??? brrrr! I would be blaming them too.

        Just cool enough to slow down the melt for any ice or snow that may not be getting direct sunlight all day. The cloudy weather during the also contributes the slower process. mention snow & ice to people up here and the sigh/groan hoping for the end of the stuff. 😀

  3. It is like it it is super sonic snow. It could be July before it melts.

      Hoping May will do its magic and make it go poof. However, they are predicting that the current cool damp weather is spawning a bumper crop of black flies & mosquitoes . Out of the fridge and into the flyer. 😦
