The forecast for today was one of bitter cold temperatures and snow squalls, however, the snow was to remain further towards the southern areas of the Ontario. When the weather turns bitterly cold this is often the time I am ready to head out to some of my favorite waterfalls and rivers because the extreme cold temperatures do wonders for the creation of awesome ice formations. My chosen destination for today was the beautiful Duchesnay Falls, which is on the Duchesnay Creek in North Bay, Ontario. I awoke at 4:30 a.m. and commenced my 3 hour drive north to North Bay. When I arrived in North Bay the temperature was a balmy -26 C 🙂 As I made my way through the forest towards the falls I soon came to realize that I could not hear the sound of the waterfall through the forest, and as I had feared it was completely frozen over, but I continued along the trail system the leads up to the top of the waterfall and did find some nice open water above the falls. I spent about three hours creating various compositions along this stretch of open water on the Duchesnay Creek before making the trek home. All in all it was a wonderful day, made even better by the brutal cold, which made for some lovely ice formations. I will share some of the alternate compositions with you shortly.
