|Winter, the Blogger, and Tilly the Tall----- Mar 30,2012|
Well, ---that bit of summer--didn't last long. See? You know the one we had for the last two weeks or so? Shirt-sleeve stuff. Camping weather. It was warm and exciting while it lasted, wasn't it?
Snow. Mother Nature played a joke on us....has everyone stopped laughing yet?
Eh? ....*sigh....yes, dear readers, it snowed again last night, we received about 6" of the wet, sticky stuff. That's Northwestern Ontario for you! We never know what we're going to get.....that's where "what you see is what you get" was invented!
Regardless, never mind the weather, let's get down to business and see what we got in exchange...some amazing photos!
What you see is What you Get:
This is a new feature on Incoming Bytes and it is called "What you See is What you Get". Why? Because whatever is incoming, is also what we see--if we're paying attention.
Sometimes we see amazing things and for some reason do not take the time to recognize, or appreciate the absolute, incredibly beautiful surroundings we have.
Here's an example of what I mean, an 'ordinary' photo taken by my extraordinary photographer Wendy Lee, the loving better half.
I hope you like this feature, we shall keep bringing photos and miscellaneous items under the same kind of title from time to time. Yes, this is snow on water.....
|A Late Spring Snowstorm brings Late reflections: Snow on Water|
And here is the reflected arch of a Black Ash tree bent high over the same pond. The snow-covered weed in the photo above is clearly an elegant arch wannabe! The clear spot with no snow on it is the result of a tiny flow of water entering the little pond.

It sure is handy to have a great photographer around, isn't it? Get the detail in this incredibly beautiful photo of ordinary, white, bland, unexciting snow.....and the exciting acrobatics that is taking place. Those weeds are really trying to catch our eye, aren't they?
|Snow and Weeds: The Acrobats|
Maybe this team of acrobatic weeds is just trying to distract us from the beautiful reflections of winter and water, who knows?
Once should never second-guess Mother Nature. After all, who else could create something as elegant as this soft, fluffy snow?
|March 30th, 2012 Soft stuff : Snow Fluff|
That's about it. We got it, now you can see it. Snow. Beautiful fluff or not, I still had to shovel it.
No wonder we like camping better. Even winter camping. Go figure.
Maybe summer will come again for a bit. We'll see. After all, what we see is what we get.
Is that Incoming I hear?
