After 2012’s almost non-existent winter it was a shock to the system to be reminded what Canadian winters can actually be like. Long and cold, plenty of snow and this year, unfortunately, not too much sunshine. I can happily cope with winter when we get those beautiful cold but sunny days, a brilliant blue sky and bright sunshine making the snow positively glow. Not so much of that this year, winter 2012/13 reminded more of the cold and damp winters I went through in England. Combined with some personal stuff that kept me away from my camera since October, there’s been little opportunity to shoot before now.

But finally over Easter we got a break and it looks like Spring finally arrived. I managed to get in a couple of short hikes over the last week, one to Rattlesnake Point in Milton and another to the Albion Hills conservation area in Bolton. Both of them offered something in the way of photo opps and it was good to take some shots again.

Rattlesnake Point has some great views over the landscape, this one was taken from one of the lookout points on the Red trail (the easy one!).

And a couple from Albion Hills also. The trails were too slippery and muddy for much decent walking, especially with a couple of dogs along for the exercise, but later in the year they’ll be perfect.
