A few days ago, I got to fumbling around in the studio, trying to conjure up something that reminded me of Christmas when I was a kid growing up in Corner Brook. But I did not have a clue as to what I was going to do. So I got in the car and drove over to a local department store to buy a few things, wrapping paper, etc.. As I passed a shelf in the food section, something caught my eye. Peppermint Knobs!! Yes, that would do it. I hadn't eaten those since I was a kid and it was usually only at Christmas time that we got to enjoy them. I hope everyone out there who happens to visit my blog, will have the Happiest and "Sweetest" Christmas ever, and a very Healthy and Prosperous New Year also.

Earlier in September, I had posted this same setting on a quiet afternoon. We just had a pretty wild storm on the weekend, and I thought that I might find something around Sunset Point Park again. When I arrived, the sun was almost gone over the horizon, and I had to wade up to my waist in snow, over buried rocks, to get myself in position for this sunset scene. The temperature was around -15 C., and the bluish hue of the snow resulting from the reflected light from the sky, and the contrasting yellowish orange colours of the sunset, makes for a rather peaceful scene.......away from the bustling Christmas shopping at the Malls.

Hypothermia anyone? The slipping ice formation looks somewhat like a futuristic aircraft, blasting off for warmer climes. Winter is here!
