One of my favourite times of winter is when the lakes freeze over. There is just no better way to walk the dog than to watch her rip over the vast empty space.
On bright sunny days, with the snow glittering over the tree branches, I don’t even notice the cold. Luckily, no one else is brave enough to face the temperatures, so we usually have the space to ourselves. Except for a few brave ice fishermen, the lake is ours.
This brief period just doesn`t last long enough. Before too long it will be February and the rain and slush will return. We have to get our ice running in while we can.
I don`t know if there is a camera in the whole that can accurately capture Shiva`s joy.
On days like these, who needs summer?
