The Changing Seasons 2016—April

It’s time, again, for Cardinal Guzman’s monthly photo challenge, The Changing Seasons 2016. Thank goodness the weather is finally getting warmer. It makes going out to take photos fun again. However, I should add, it did snow again this morning. Ugh!

The first photo in this series was taken on April 1st. I had a very special visitor. Three visitors, actually, but only one of them would look me in the eye when I spoke. I almost didn’t include this photo because the image quality isn’t that great, but how could I not share it? It’s so freaking cute!

The takeout restaurant down the road just reopened for the season. I haven’t eaten there yet, but I stopped to take this photo on my way to shoot photos of construction zone at the canal bridge. I never realized until that day, what an incredible view the place has!

Construction of the new two-lane swing bridge (that will replace our one-lane swing bridge) has begun.

Last month, I shared several photos taken on Denys Street. It’s closed now for construction. I’m not sure when I’ll be able to (safely) return for photos.

The rest of the photos I’m sharing this month were taken in Battery Provincial park on April 17th. It’s a place I will certainly be returning to again and again for The Changing Seasons photo challenge.

  1. Oh my goodness, you’re eye contact shot is the cutest thing ever! How amazing to get that shot. Love it. And the rest of your gallery is like a collection of postcards. What a beautiful part of the world you live in!

  2. It still looks cold there!. This morning we had rain and wet slush snow when I went to work. Fuck off! 😀
    Nice view from that take out place. I guess you’ll get double speed fines almost all over your neighborhood! And that bench on the eroding cliff is literally living on the edge. In a few years your photo will be the only proof that it ever existed.

    • My sentiments exactly when it comes to April snow (or snow in any other month for that matter).

      Yes, there are double speed fines pretty much everywhere in my neighbourhood. After passing through the construction zone, there is a school zone (speed limit of 50km/h drops to 30km/h). That’s even more annoying than the construction zone because my car won’t drive that slow unless I have my foot on the break. Can’t parents just teach their kids to stay off the damn road?!

  3. I love your gallery of photos. They really show the bare anticipation of early spring.
    … but I have to question your judgement of a photo that’s not very good because the deer shot is magnificent!! I’m sure we all picture a little thought bubble above his head. I’m imagining something like ‘you lookin’ at me?’

    • Thanks. Oh, I like the photo of the deer, it’s just not clear and sharp. I like the photos I share here to be of “decent image quality”. There was a lot of digital manipulation done to get it to where it is now, which isn’t very good.
