Baywalk

One day last week, after numerous gray days and bad weather, the sun made an appearance. The northern sky cleared and attempted to clear to the south. However, a menacing cloud bank held its place and the sun was short-lived.

We wanted to explore the beginning of the boardwalk in Summerside. Our walks have always been along the upper part of the Baywalk but curiosity and the desire for a change of scene drew us to the inner part of the bay.

 

We didn't get far. Snow-covered ice, not yet salted since the freezing rain storm the previous day, prevented us from walking on the trail. Nevertheless, I took some of my favourite photos with my new camera.

 

This single tree is all its winter splendor was highlighted against the sky, ice covered bay, the boardwalk and marsh. There is a small abandoned bird's nest in the tree as well.

 

Zooming in on some of the elements of the scene shows the light, 

 

not brilliant sunshine but muted light for mid morning, the scene almost aglow.

 

We stopped and stared.

I like your new camera pictures, Marie. And it does look cold and overcast, except for that blue sky in the second one. I enjoyed the bay walk from here. :-)

That ice did look treacherous. Spring is coming.
