So yesterday, I decided to take a walk to the river, to photograph the snow and the water and the docks. Normally, the walk that I took would be a very easy walk. Yesterday, because of the snow and because of the wind that occasionally kicked up, this walk became much more challenging. Nevertheless, I started walking. It was interesting to watch the snowplows at work, clearing out driveways.

|Snow swirling around makes headlights almost the only thing you can see.|
|In the falling snow, the trees look a little mysterious.|
|A truck parked on the side of the road. All is white and peaceful.|
I walked along the Niagara River, looking for photo ops, which I found to me great glee. Getting to the spots where I could get the best shots turned out to be challenging so it was good that I wore my rain pants. I had to wade through some very deep snow! It was adventurous. Here are some of the pictures that I took along the river.

|It looks like a long line of small Christmas trees.|
|It's definitely off season in the boating world.|
|Here is another view of those Christmas trees, looking very much like Christmas has just arrived.|

|Trees in wintertime are very interesting. You can see the shapes of all of the branches when the trees have no leaves. Notice how the branches curl around and the tree seems to tilt just a little bit.|
|I guess that yesterday wasn't the day for a picnic.|
Carmen drove me home, and that was the end of my adventure.
Here are a few more pictures:
|I love the appearance of a snow covered wooden fence.|
