Woodbine in the Winter

with 9 comments


“No Lifeguard on Duty”

Back when I was still going to school, I used to have quite a bit of spare time.  I spent a lot of that spare time going out and taking photo walks and one of my most favourite places to visit was Woodbine Beach…. Woodbine Beach in the wintertime to be more specific.  I love how the beach is so empty during the winter season, devoid of the people that usually crowd in during the summertime.  I’ve never actually been to Woodbine Beach in the summertime (I’m allergic to heat… and I have sweating issues… lol), but from what I’ve heard the crowds can get pretty thick during those times.

There aren’t that many things to see at Woodbine Beach; mostly sand, sand, water, and more sand, so there really aren’t that many things to take pictures of.  I really just go there to spend some quiet alone time along the shores of Lake Ontario.  The pictures are really just a bonus.  Looking back at these pictures makes me wish I had more time to just go out and take pictures again…. *sigh*

Here are a couple of shots that I’ve taken during my many trips to Woodbine Beach in the wintertime.

  1. By clicking on “theme” on my WordPress top-division I was referred to other blogs which use Journalist-1.9 theme. I use it mainly for getting large images, but I like it generally except there is not “commenting” link at the bottom of a post. Well, when scrolling down your post from April I got more and more surprised that there were so fine pictures. I am not going to say too much, I like them all, but the nex-to-last says more to me.

    I can understand your fascination of Woodbine – it is simply beautiful. Yes, get time to go out and take some more pictures, just once each month 🙂 Best Wishes from Donald Axel (Denmark, EU).
