Saturday Photo: Skating at Parc Outremont

It's been a hard winter here  for people who like winter sports.  There has been some snow but the temperature has gone up and down and the outdoor ice rinks have suffered.   This weekend looks like it will be one where folks can have some fun.

Saturday Photo: Waiting for the End of Winter

 The snow is melting fast, even though it's not even the middle of February.  But some folks have everything ready for sunny days and barbecues.

Saturday Photo: Lanewalker in the City

 Lots of alleys in Montreal don't get plowed, and so during the winter they take on the appearance of country lanes.  Good for walking, good for thinking that you're far away from the hustle and bustle of city life.

Saturday Photo: Seeing Double in the Winter

This photo was taken several years ago, but it seems appropriate today.  You have to look at it twice or on two levels anyway.  In the reflection of outside in the window you see the snow of a Montreal winter, but inside there are flowers and plants braving the season.

Good to have double vision on these days when it is cold, but the world is growing hotter...

Saturday Photo: Sunrise, Waning Moon, Winter...

Took this out the front window on one of the few days lately when the skies are clear.

Nice to see the moon  for a change, although as you can see it's waning.  Full moon January 25: hope there will be clear skies so we can enjoy the spectacle.

Saturday Photo: First Morning of the Year

 Cold morning of January 1 when the water was warmer than the air.  Happy New Year all, a little late.
