Coats Of Ice / #4

This recreational trail connects the two towns of Fergus and Elora; this stretch during Summer is something I nicknamed "Mosquito Alley", but here we see it as a frozen stillness.

In this one, I love the monochrome sensation and the water under the ice. Trees bend and meet like hair on a forehead. So soft... A caress.

Gorgeous 'tunnel view' through the 'ice'! The trail looks like an abandoned railway track.

@franz: Thanks very much, franz. This is a very handy "as the crow flies" trail that gets a lot of use but can also offer wonderful solace strolls through farmland, over a river, in a gorge... I love it.

An excellent PoV captured here which adds incredible depth to this composition!! The contrasts and textures are amazing.

Love this one - the perspective, like it is out of time with the deep freeze.
