    They lied, Joe, they lied. Spring comes with the blackfly!

  • Indeed. That is when I do indoor shooting mostly. ;)

    Winter indeed had it’s grip on this dock. Great capture, Joe! Longing for spring here, too.

  • Yeah, guess I’m ready for warm weather finally. Not this week though. Hope all is well. Cheers.

    WOW Joe, this looks amazing! :) So has the warm weather arrived yet, I sent it days ago! :) We’ve got a cool change tonight, a few days ago Tasmania got snow so I assume your Spring has arrived? Some Spring skiing for you you buddy?

    Gabe :)

  • No, warm weather has not arrived. We stay cold and snowy much longer than most the US. Pretty far north and on the eastern shore of one of the Great Lakes, Lake Ontario.The winds and cold northern air comes across unobstructed. Soon, maybe.
