Rapids and Falls on the Oromocto

In areas where the waters are fast flowing, such as these rapids and falls along the North Oromocto; rivers have opened up much earlier this spring than those with stiller waters.

Chasing a Sunset

While watching tv early yesterday evening I noticed a beautiful sunset reflected in my neighbour's windows. I immediately reached for my camera and car keys, hopped into my car, and followed this magnificent, firey, setting orb right on into the next village. Stopping and pausing along the way, I was able to capture some of the intense, colourful richness of this setting sun.

Saint John River at Maugerville (March, 2006)

From my photo archives, this picture was taken last year, 2006, in late March. I had just bought a new camera on that day and this was one of my first photos taken with it.

Field of Ice

As often happens this time of year; heavy rains and warm temperatures can suddenly cause a river to rise and flood its banks. This river ice, once a frozen blanket covering the river, now has been left behind, abandoned and scattered about in this field at Hoyt, after the flood waters have receded.

Flooded Fields

A nameless river, and a temporary one at that.

Actually not a river at all; but a flooded field seen along highway 101.

Ice Going Out

An always anticipated event; the going out of the ice in the river. Seen here, the North Oromocto River is now running open and ice free in some sections. This location is the same as in the small photo of a wintery scene to the left titled; 'the colour of winter'. Seasonal colours are changing.

Pussy Willow Catkins

Found today
these traditional
harbingers of spring;

white catkins
emerging on
the branches
of a Pussy Willow.

Ice-patched Walking Trail

Today I found this ice-patched walking trail through an old stand of Pines alongside the river surprisingly free of snow; however, a current winter snowfall warning forecasting periods of heavy snow and blowing snow, beginning tonight, will create a landscape of a somewhat different hue and texture by tomorrow.

River Fog

Rain, above freezing temperatures, surface water and run off; all definite factors which will soon bring about the seasonal break up of the river ice.

Spring Rivers

The yellow brown surface water running over the top of this frozen stream will soon work its spring magic and create a fast flowing river once more.

These overwintered, fuzzy, dense, cigar shaped cattail heads have weathered the winter storms and still stand upright along the roadside. Even as the old heads remain; young shoots will soon emerge and renew their growth cycle in early spring.
