A SNOWY DRIVE

Uncategorized

[thumb:491:l] Toronto has just received its first major snowfall of the season. Today, I took a drive up to Maxine’s place in Wasaga Beach for a quick visit. The weather as I left was terrible but turned sunny half way. This shot was taken on a back country road near Caledon as I attempt to bypass that little town with the terrible traffic.

A pair of woodpeckers came and went and this is as close as I could get to these shy birds. Max says the deer have made an appearance but they tend to show up in the early morning and late evening only.
