Project52 – Frozen Puddle

This week's Project52 theme is 'Summer/Winter'. As it's technically winter here in the northern hemisphere, that was the direction I took when I went looking for something representative of this theme. Unfortunatley, the weather here in Calgary has been unusually mild so far, with temperatures during the day regularly above zero and even venturing into the teens, thanks to our chinooks.

As such, there isn't really much around that fits well with this week's theme. However, there are a lot of puddles all over the place and when they freeze overnight, they create some neat crystalline patterns. Here's a couple of the shots I was happy with.

The weather forecast has us expecting a brown Christmas here in Calgary this year. We've been enjoying some unusually warm weather over the last couple of weeks, which has helped melt away a lot of the white stuff that had accumulated a few weeks ago. Despite this lack of winter, I noticed these couple of shots of fresh fallen snow I had taken a couple of years ago while I was digging around my archives doing some cleanup.

I'd also like to take this opportunity to wish everyone a safe and happy holiday season.. A big Merry Christmas to you and yours and all the best for a Happy New Year! Cheers!

I was rearranging my photo library, trying to figure out a better way to organize and categorize my photos when I came across this shot of a metal park bench with some great bokeh. I wasn't really trying for this effect, but sometimes my camera and lens surprises me and a neat shot results from it. I also tried converting it to black and white, but I'm not sure which version I like better. What do you think?
