Sight to Behold

“I snapped this photo of the twin spans of the Blue Water Bridge joining Point Edward, Ont., here in Canada and Port Huron, Michigan, in the United States,” shares Darren Metcalfe of Corunna, Ont. “It is a stunning sight to see during all four seasons, including winter, with locals and visitors alike flocking to the area year-round. I was ‘test-driving’ a new camera when I stumbled across a number of people fishing under the bridge, including this fellow.”

Solitary Moment

Monique Savoie of Moncton, N.B., shares this great pic, writing: “This photo is a beautiful example of the type of activity we can enjoy during winter here in Canada. Fishing for smelt through the ice is a wonderful pastime, in which almost no equipment is needed. Last winter, we went ice fishing on a cloudy day, when there were no smelt to be had, I decided to snap a few pictures. This is my husband, Mario, trying his luck in nearby Cocagne. For us, spending time outside is a must and ice fishing is just one of many winter activities we enjoy.”

Iconic Symbol

“I think when someone sees a CN train, they automatically think Canada,” says Anne Doerksen of Carrot River, Sask. “I like the colours of the train against the white frosted trees in this photo. I’m reminded of years gone by when the old steam engine trains would roll across the vast Prairie landscape.”

Back in the Day

“While driving to Algonquin Park, I spotted this hockey rink on Opeongo Lake,” says Paul Sinclair of Lindsay, Ont. “As I pulled my car over to take a pic, I flashed back to playing hockey every Saturday morning on a local pond. It brought back some of my fondest childhood memories.”
