Some say that Old Man Winter is a real nice guy. Those people like skiing and skating and making snowmen.
Some say he’s a real S.O.B. – those people like fireplaces and liqueurs and warm TVs.
Some say he’s just doing his job and shouldn’t be unduly chastised – after all, nobody ever says thank you, do they?
When I was at the Kananaskis Lodge recently I took my camera with me and went for a short walk along the escarpment. Emphasis here is on the short because O.M.W. was in fine fettle that day.
This was one picture I managed to get despite the cold. A wild sky, a setting Sun, long shadows, and a sharp, biting wind that you can almost see.
It makes me feel cold just to look at it.
