It's been very cold around Hamilton lately, offering a perfect opportunity for some winter photos. Temperatures have been as low as -20 C, so even waterfalls have frozen solid!
First, a look at Tiffany Falls a couple weeks ago, the people there were taking lessons on ice climbing.
These photos are from the very beautiful Spencer Gorge which is part of the Niagara Escarpment, and only a couple of minutes from my house in Dundas.
at the opening to the gorge (standing about halfway up the escarpment)
VIA rail travels along these tracks, offering passengers a great view of Dundas and Hamilton
some scenery on my way to Webster's Falls in the gorge
Spencer's Creek winding along. Mostly frozen, it normally rages.
Webster's falls, the pano doesn't quite give the proper perspective, but cool nonetheless
A closeup of the waterfall, it's difficult to see, but there was still some water falling
Looking out from the top of Webster's Falls into the gorge opening
Another view of Webster's Falls
These are some pictures from around the time of the ice storm a few weeks ago
Another waterfall near Ancaster (another part of Hamilton) in January, just before the really cold weather hit.
