Ice Fishing

Ice fishing, another way to pass the winter!

I have never been ice fishing. But if I was to go it would be inside one of these amazing huts! Truth be told I am not big into fishing even in warm weather. In my books stopping at a grocery store to pick-up your fish is easier and more enjoyable. But that is me.

Getting out!

This past weekend with the slight break in the frigid temperatures I decided that I would head out. I wanted to see what I could find worth taking pictures of. There was a lot to shoot. It was not what I was expecting but there was a lot!

My first stop was at McQuillan Reservoir. In a very short walk I found a number of subjects to photograph. From the ice fishing tents, the animal tracks to some rabbits and a few birds it was a fun day. Cannot say that I got to walk very far as the slight breeze that was blowing was enough to make it painful to stay out. But with so many subjects to photograph I had to take pictures. It is also funny how after a number of days of clouds that a day of even a little sun makes being outside enjoyable.

Winter is back!

Suppose to be a cold and snowy weekend. Cannot complain so far this winter with what we have had. I don’t hate snow pictures but we can have spring any time now 🙂 . The good part is when I am shooting with the White Turtle III I have the heat on so I can warm up when I get back.
McQuillan Reservoir, Coaldale

Same area in the spring.

It is hard to believe that the same area that is so cold and lifeless today will take on an entire new look once winter leaves us. I cannot wait!!! I hope spring brings some rain. I do not want a flood just some warm rains to bring the life back.

Hopefully once spring and then summer shows up we will not get the smoke like in the past years. Really need to have a clear summer as the past two have been really smokey.
