Corn Stubble at Dusk

Snow Snakes and other things, Kanata, Ontario

I hadn’t started the day out with any particular photographic goal, but as I was coming home, I noticed the sun shining off the dome of the Greek Orthodox Church and so grabbed my camera and, after one thing led to another, I found myself out after sunset with camera in hand.

Sculpted snow patterns spread across the snow covered corn fields near Kanata, Ontario. When I did a lot of X/C skiing, the reason for falling down was oft cited as the influence of snow snakes that had slithered out from beneath the crusted snow and grabbed the skiier’s boot. These ones looked pretty harmless to me. 🙂

I hadn’t intended to stay out after dark, but when I pulled over to the side of the road to take the shot of the corn field at dusk, I locked myself out of my car :-(.

A farmhouse wasn’t far way and I was able to call home and have my son come out to where I was (not too far from home, thank goodness). While I was waiting, this friendly Golden Lab, kept an eye on me and kept me company.
