It is that time of the year. When daylights are short, precipitation is long, the city of Windsor is whipped by the snowstorm and strong wind chill, and the harsh climate wreaks havoc on the schedule of commuting everywhere.
The air up in Windsor is very humid, makes the Fahrenheit of ten below more gripping then -30 degrees in Fairbanks Alaska.I tried to stay warm and organized as much as I can, but even a picture shot straight from my window outside chilled my bones, not to say to step outside. But in the end, I gave up. I cannot take to stay in my apartment all day. So I ended up taking some images about the real winter.
My camera was in hiatus for a long time after I left Hawaii, and it is an awesome feeling to pick that up all again. Doing winter shots require different sets of photography skills and I am still working on it. The following picture reveals what winter looks like on campus.
I really love the combination color of the white and red. I always believe those two are the perfect match.
Picture: Ambassador Bridge and Detroit River taken right out of my window. Do not get me wrong, I did not take this shot in the dawn, but the snow whipped the Detroit sky and makes the riverside looks super gloomy.
One thing I realized after taking those pictures is that winter actually made me feel refreshed. Imagining wake up to the snow falls on the riverside and started your day with a home-made premium breakfast.
Also it is the first winter in my entire life that I got to sick the least, and I was able to fully recover in two days. So say I am mad, but I still love to get out and embrace the Mother Nature as much as possible.
By the way, I really love to live on the border and overlook the Detroit River outside my window. This is so far the best apartment I have ever lived.
