It’s been a busy week, but I still managed to get one shot per day. The weather has started to improve, so I was able to spend a lot more time outside on the ski trails, which meant more iPhone pictures.

In recognition of National Flag Day here in Canada, I hoped to get a picture of a flag waving in the wind.
The only one I could find was a tattered one riding a slight breeze.

We’ve had a pretty snowy winter so far, but last night was the biggest dumping of the season. With 20-25cm of snow, we are having a hard time finding a place to put it.
The snowbank beside our walkway is nearing five feet in height, and with more snow in the forecast, I fully expect this to get even higher.

The dog walks seem to be a good opportunity to find something new to photograph.
The texture of these tall grasses caught my eye and are a nice contrast to harshness of snow and bare trees.

Another great day for skiing. I’m really enjoying the opportunities to get on the trails this winter, but this makes me think about camping.
The picnic tables are stacked near the campground, waiting for spring and camping season to arrive.

More snow today and more great ski conditions. I’m finding my iPhone is far easier to carry on the ski trails instead of the DSLR.
I love how the snow coats the branches of the conifers and this angle makes you think of a deep woods setting.

Today my wife completed her walk for the Coldest Night of the Year and I joined her for the first part of the walk on the trails. The trails were mostly soft snow, so it was tough going.
This particular stand of young trees was windblown by the recent snow, giving a unique view of the forest.

I rounded off the week with a 12.6 km ski in near perfect conditions. Although it was quite busy on the trails today, it was worth it.
Just like the sign says, I totally recommend getting out for a ski or snowshoe this season, before things warm up.
