Winter Scene: Starving Cold

I took this pic a couple weeks ago while visiting my folks in Windsor. They have a miniature Doberman Pinscher that goes nuts every time he sees a grey squirrel through the window. The squirrel must have been REALLY hungry, because he didn't budge when the dog barked loudly from just a feet away. ISO: 200, Exp: 1/200, Aperture: f/5.6, Focal length: 100mm.

Looks like we got some snow today

I'm slowly recovering from a cold and the medication I've been taken wrecks havoc with my sleep patterns. As a result, I woke early this morning to a really cool winter snowstorm. Of course, the medication isn't all to blame - I was up until 5:30am Saturday morning trying to unlock my new iPhone - but that's another story. While Heather slept, I watched out the window as the snow just kept on falling. I was really surprised when I started to hear the thunder... loud, crackling and rumbling. It was awesome. Around 5pm this evening, we decided to go outside for some fresh air and a short walk to our local Starbucks. I brought my camera with us and took the winter photos you see here. It was a little bit too cold and the snow was blowing horizontally, and I was worried about my camera, so I didn't get as many shots in as I would have liked. Still, I was fairly happy with the results: a dark mess of a day at Pape and Danforth. For more photos, check out my Flickr page.
