This is it … the final month of the Changing Seasons Photo Challenge hosted by Cardinal Guzman. I can’t believe we are at the end of the year already.
I think of December as being all about lights, sparkly decorations and jewel tones. With this in mind, I went down to Bluffer’s Marina at dusk with the expectation of seeing the house-boats and condos ablaze in Christmas lights. I was disappointed.
With the exception of one tiny Christmas tree, there wasn’t a decoration in sight.
The brightest light I could find was on the tiny lighthouse at the mouth of the harbour.
But this December isn’t normal. It’s not about the lights and decorations this year – it’s about the weather.
Last year we were in the middle of an Arctic blast that stayed around for months. This year, it feels more like approaching spring.
So I’ve been spending considerably more time outdoors enjoying this unseasonably warm weather while it lasts.
Some of these photos were taken while cycling a trail running along the Don River on the east end of Toronto.
Some were taken while walking along the lakefront at Rouge Park.
All of them tell the same story of a beautiful December in Eastern Canada.
Thank you for joining me each month as I explored the seasons in Toronto and thank you to Cardinal Guzman for hosting this photo challenge.
Best wishes and Happy Holidays!
