In the interval between Covid-19 lockdowns, a friend and I enjoyed a socially-distanced trip to Shirley's Bay. This is an area of NCC (National Capital Commission) parkland in Western Ottawa. It is home to Lac Deschênes Sailing Club, and in winter is a popular entry point to the Ottawa River for ice fishing. We went in mid-March. This is an in-between season: no longer really Winter, but not yet Spring. There was a mix of snow, ice and puddles on the trails, and an intermittent overcast sky. It was great to get out, and I thoroughly enjoyed walking these familiar trails with my friend. With no particular goal in mind, I took a wide variety of photographs. Usually, I process my shots for colour output, but this time I chose a monochrome theme.
