    We had some freezing rain here in Toronto on Saturday, so I braved the slippery conditions to grab a few pics...

    Naah, it was only about 2 inches deep, max. With a frozen layer of ice on top. I was hoping to find some nice colourful berries frozen in ice, but there was nothing but brown stems, with all the ice on the 'east' side of the stems.

    So here you are saying that the plants only have ice on their eastern side ... I was looking at them for the first time yesterday and thought: hand on, they are not all wrapped into ice, now are they?

    Looks cool. And cold! :shock:
    Icy... like winter.
    I mean: the way winter ought to look. You have seen my first winter-interlude thread, you know what I mean, don't you :roll: :er: :wink: !?!?!

    Oh yeah, it's been cold all right! We've had a few days where it's been -20 to -24C with the windchill. Prolonged cold like that makes the harbour start to skim over with ice. But we haven't had a lot of snow.....yet.

    Thanks everyone for your kind comments. It was such a grey day, but I hadn't taken or posted pics for a while, so I was determined to get something. I was hoping for some hints on how to improve shots of snow, or shots taken on dull, grey days. Any takers?
