Lake Ontario in the Winter

in travel •  7 months ago

I recently went to Kingston, Ontario with my girlfriend (this past weekend). We were visiting her aunt.

Lake Ontario was a 10 minute walk away, and my girlfriend wanted to go visit the lake in the winter. So we did just that ;)

Despite the cold temperature, there was a stream runoff of melting snow at the edge of the lake below the snow cover.

There was this neat looking ice beach on the coastal edge of the lake as well :)

At some places you can see land across the horizon while at other places you can't see any land.

It's a big lake ;) It looks like an ocean if you go out far enough, as you don't see any land...

Well that was the gist of the trip to the lake. It was nice with the sun, and a nice view, but pretty damn cold with the wind :/

My fingers were burning a bit after being exposed to the elements while taking several pictures. The wind is a killer hehe.

I hope you enjoyed the view as well :)

Thank you for your time and attention :) Take care. Peace.

For some reason, the last photo makes me think of a book cover for a young adult novel. It's the overall feel. That aside, I live in the tropics and seeing that much snow makes me wonder how many layers of clothes I'd have to wear to be able to explore and enjoy the place. The biting cold is worth it by the way because your pictures look good. The last one with your gf has to be my favorite though.

Ehh there's not even half the amount of snow in my country. When there's a lot of snow you can take a lot of beautiful pictures! And I know that feeling when fingers are burning from all that cold when you're trying to take pictures :D gotta make sacrifices! Haha

Yeah, gotta make sacrifices :P hehehe

This would have been an awesome #WalkWithMe :) Beautiful shots of Lake Ontario, I've never seen it frozen before. My husband is from Pickering :)

Good to see you @krnel and your GF :)

Cool. Thanks for the tag tip too :)

I'm sure it's very beautiful in the sun helps, but what's a cold that looks like a no man's land. At least it provides a memory for you and your girlfriend. Thanks for sharing.

Yes the frozen land makes for barren death zone scenes lol

The sight of the place really impresses is incredible, I can imagine the intense cold .. A place where the silence dominates, and the landscape shines the eyes from who sees.

Great post. The Great Lakes truly are great! It always baffles me when people drive their trucks out on Lake Huron. I am cool with small lakes, but that is just asking for trouble. We just had four guys need to be rescued the other weekend when things thawed up a little and they were out there.

Great shots! thank you for your sharing!I thinkit must be very cold in the ice and snow world !

This is totally amazing...I am speechless...
