Photos from my Canadian Christmas

This first is a shot of the ditch near Karina's home in Saskatchewan which is lined with poplar trees. Here the sun which is so low this time of year, casts long shadows over everything. I love the blue and white of this image and how the shadow bends over the contours of the snow and ditch.

This second photo is just up the road a bit from the first. Here a fence post pokes out from a summer time swamp area. Animal tracks and and a tuft of grass add texture to the stark shadows of the wire and post.

This third image is from our drive home across Saskatchewan on Sunday. Everything for about 3 hours heading east from Springside was covered in heavy hoar frost. This area, where we paused to switch drivers was especially heavy.
