Silent Sunday Sunshine

Seriously I didn’t care that it was -26 with a windchill of -35. The sunshine was stellar. Added bonus we finally saw a moose!

I may or may not have frozen my fingers taking photos today!



I have had a love of the written word for my entire life. It's no surprise that eventually I found a platform where I could write. It's random; sometimes funny, occasionally sad, maybe even at times from anger and I lean towards creative photography and hands on crafts. I have a few blogs that high light these interests.

  1. Wow, beautiful winter photos, Bernie. Just a few days ago temperatures plummeted to -4’C in Sligo and that was already too cold for my liking. Not too sure if I could manage -26’C 🙂

    1. Aiva, it’s true that being a dry cold makes a huge difference. I lived in Vancouver and -4 there is brutal. -20 here is comfy. It was a bit colder today as there was more of a breeze but it’s still doable for an hour. Thanks for the comment about the photos. Glad they are appreciated because as Allan said they are hard on the hands!

    1. How weird that this was in my spam file. Weird how sometimes WordPress does weird stuff like that. Thanks for stopping by and commenting – even if it seems like I ignored it.


    1. I have always loved winter so never travelled to escape it (travelled to ski but that likely won’t be happening this year). We have always embraced it and I am happy to report our children are the same and now our grandchildren. We live here by choice so whining about the weather for 6 months is crazy. I lived in Vancouver and despised the wet dreary rainy days so we left. The moose was a cool element to the day!

  2. Great shots Bernie. Always nice to see a moose. I’m with you on the freezing fingers part of photos. Patty got me some photographer gloves and my fingers are now also cold when the gloves are on. Looks like a hazard of the hobby. Stay warm. Allan

    1. Somehow my reply to you got lost? Weird. Anyway yes the fingers are an issue and add in pulling out puppy treats and they were definitely the cold part of me. The rest was ok but my right hand not so much! The shots of the moose aren’t great but I had to quickly zip to the top of the ravine hill and squinting straight into the sun try to find him and take some shots. I felt lucky to capture him at all as they move at a fair clip! Thanks for stopping in and engaging here. Also stay warm and stay safe. Bernie

    1. That’s typical Sask January weather but we had such a warm Nov, Dec and the beginning of January that it feels colder that it is. We were out for 30 mins and weren’t cold although both our 14 year old retriever and our 14 week old lab were so we headed back. The moose – we know they are around but never spotted one on our property before so that was cool. Thanks for stopping by and engaging in conversation here.

    1. We’ve seen them before Donna but never on our property while out walking so that was cool. Of course I don’t want him in my yard eating our trees but that hasn’t been an issue like it is with the deer.
