Off the Trail
This is another photo from last weekend in the ravine just east of Yonge Street at St. Clair Avenue in Toronto. The actual path is to the right of the railing but with all of the snow the flat trail has become a part of the hill down to the river. The snow-coated trees were beautiful. The light was not good for photography but hopefully you can sense a bit of the magic that this place has in the middle of winter.
I put on my snow trekking boots that I'd bought for a trip to Nepal a number of years ago and grabbed the camera and went out for a hike. It was a nice bit of time to myself, the snow muting the sounds of the city making it very peaceful.
My gear fell into the snow a few times as i'd loos my footing on hills and go for a slide but the trusty and solidly built Olympus gear seems to have stood up well. My lenses are all weathersealed (although not the rear lens elements/caps, but i managed to keep them dry). While the camera isn't the water hasn't affected it (yet!). I think all is good.
