Trumpeter Swans

Finally, we had sunny, frosty, and snowy winter weekend. The Sun was blindingly bright, and on its harsh light the photography did not have semitones. However, it did not stop me to make some pictures of beautiful trumpeter swans.

The Beginning

And so, another year – 2023 is here.

Sometimes people say that life flows like sand through fingers. However, sand that seeped through the fingers can be lifted and repeated all over again. But if you compare life with a river, then it is impossible to return the flowed water…

White Christmas expected

December 23, 1:00 pm, temperature is -14C, Blizzard. Definitely we are going to have White Christmas. But today and tomorrow the weather is nasty. It is not really nice and beautiful rather dangerous for driving and walking. However, on Christmas Day we expect sunny and crispy condition.











It is nice to be home. The fireplace is burning. Christmas tree is sparkling with lights. Warm and cozy.

And these two funny and happy guys are on their way through the life for 47 years together.

October Evening Sky

The last October Sunday was beautiful, and a lot of people rushed to enjoy that lovely day to Niagara Falls. Who knows, perhaps it was the last warm and sunny day of the season. Because we live right over the corner from that place, our decision to go there in the evening was right. There were not a lot of strollers around, cool and fresh air, the falling water roar, and a beautiful evening sky made walking enjoyable.

The last Breath of October

The end of October pleased us with beautiful sunny days. However, it creates a lot of work. All beautiful colourful leaves from the trees now looking like thick yellow rug. Leaves rustle underfoot, and it is very sad to part with them, but we must say goodbye to them. See you in the Spring!

October

October is the most colourful Autumn month in Canada. Even when the day is grey everything looks festive and attractive. The colours are unreal bright, and under the faint rays of the sun they are burning.
















Autumn, you look like my sadness, Autumn. I don’t love you, Autumn, but still, Autumn, we’ll be together until winter.

Toy Town

Saturday morning sunrise was gloomy and and partially foggy. However the colourful and cute small town Niagara-on-the-Lake makes even that kind of weather festive and joyful. It is the most loveable touristic place in Niagara Falls area. No matter what season it is there are a lot of people on the streets of this beautiful town. Let me show you what it looks like in the early morning.

Strangers

Definitely, they are not native Canadians. However they are here and living their hard immigrant life.

Butterfly Conservatory

Butterfly Conservatory is the nice place to have fun and relax. It is located at Niagara Falls. There is a special atmosphere at this place. The countless butterflies fly around you, and at some point one can feel like somebody’s souls flutter around.


















Bird Kingdom

Among the numerous Niagara Falls attraction there is the Bird Kingdom. Here you can see a lot of exotic birds which are not usual for Canada. They are treated well and place is looking pretty close to real world for these creatures. However, it is not their natural habitat, it is only nice prison for them. Nevertheless, it is very busy place where families with kids enjoy this beautiful attraction.

Welland Canal

The Welland Canal locks allow large ships over 200 yards in length that may weigh approximately 30,000 tons to travel between Lake Ontario and Lake Erie in spite of the 326.5 ft. difference in elevation. The Welland Canal locks lift and lower these ships with the help of gravity and large quantities of water. The force of gravity is used to fill or drain a lock moving about 20 million gallons of water in about 11 minutes. It is this movement of water that actually lifts or lowers a ship in a lock. The force of gravity is so strong that it draws this water a distance of 27 miles from lake Erie to Lake Ontario filling and draining the 8 locks in between. (wellandcanal.com)

Sunflowers all the time watching to the East. Probably they are named not only because they look alike, but because they miss and wait for the Sun all the time.
