“Winter’s Last Bite?”

“Winter’s Last Bite?”

“The heart can get really cold if all you’ve known is winter.”
― Benjamin Alire Sáenz

Ah!, spring in southern Ontario is, to say the least, ‘unpredictable’. This past Tuesday you could go out and enjoy the sun in a sweatshirt, the next day, a parka was needed as temperatures varied widely.

So, I reflect on this image from last weekend, made on the still frozen shores of Lake Ontario, near Whitby.

The unusual ice formations remind me of teeth and the ‘bite’ of winter. it is nice to see a few teeth missing and others dissolving as temperatures gradually rise. I’m seriously looking forward to spring and the return of warmth after a long, dark winter. In fact, we had a record set in January, with only a few days of sunlight.
