After the roads were cleared from this season's second biggest snowfall, Rhonda and I headed out to the banks of the St. Lawrence River in Brockville, Ontario. Our goal was just to stretch our legs after being cooped up inside for a bit and to take some pictures and video of whatever caught our attention. (I did the filming, and she took the snapshots, like usual.)
The last time I was down by the mighty St. Lawrence, it still hadn't iced over, but I knew we had a pretty good cold snap lately, so I wasn't sure what I'd find when we got there. The river had finally frozen over, and it's the first time I've seen ice cover in the last few years, so it was a nice surprise. We spent the afternoon at Centeen Park and Hardy Park capturing different scenes until the sun dipped far down on the horizon and our fingers and toes were numb from the cold.
"Solitude" is my final winter themed video of the season. I set out to shoot 3 different videos around the area that had a similar look and feel, which could be played back to back, or standalone. (Snowfallen, Winterscape and Solitude.)
Filmed on Feb 10th, 2013 on my Canon XA10.
