We picked a perfect day to go snowshoeing in Sandbanks Provincial Park. The sun was glinting off the crisp white landscape, and the clear blue sky highlighted the mist in our breath. Laying down the first set of tracks in the fresh snow is always such a satisfying feeling and for a moment, the world feels is still with only the crunching sound of footsteps echoing through the woods. The best feeling of all however, is returning home to a cozy wood burning stove and warming up with some hot tea and a greasy breakfast.
This year for Family Day weekend, we rented a lovely little cottage in Sandbanks Provincial Park, right along the lake. I love how perfectly still winter can be far away from the busy city. Everyday the world feels fresh and untouched; at peace. Even though we were lacking snow, we still went for some long snowshoe treks, and the mild weather also allowed for some gorgeous runs along the crystallized lake. From the alien dune and ice landscapes to the twinkling, frozen lake; the glowing skies and the bare, crawling tree branches; I loved what I captured on this trip.
