With a blizzard falling on Nova Scotia this afternoon, I had the opportunity to break out the camera for my walk home. I have only managed to time this right perhaps once or twice a winter over the last few years. For some reason, I seem to invariably convert these images to black and white - perhaps so I can safely increase the contrast without making the colours seem odd.
Some of my images from this afternoon:
|Halifax Central Library.|
|Nova Centre under construction, as seen through an arch.|
|The Grafton tunnel under Nova Centre. A slow shutter speed nicely blurred the passage of snow flakes.|
|Argyle Street in the snow, near the Carleton.|
|Commuters evacuating the downtown via Lower Water Street.|
|Alderney marshalling yard.|
|One of the gates to Leighton Dillman Park (aka Dartmouth Common).|
|Trees on Dartmouth Common.|
Plus, one of my favourites from last year:
|A bus leaving the Metro Transit bridge terminal in Dartmouth.|
Now, all I have to do is shovel it all out of the driveway tomorrow morning. I'm not entirely sure it is worth it!
