Ontario Ice Arch

The photographs in this series entitled: Ontario Ice Arch, Volcano on Ice, Icing Triangular, Shoreline Ice and Icing Pyramids where made on two separate visits to the shoreline of Lake Ontario in 2014. From 2010 to 2015, I travelled and photographed along the Canadian side of the Lake Ontario Shoreline. The goal was to photograph the development, degradation and beauty found on a variety of sites. In the winter of 2014 in Northumberland County the ice conditions along the shoreline were absolutely spectacular. Extremely cold weather created an above average freeze up on the Great Lakes. The five photographs shown in this series were taken during February and early March, either in the early morning or late daylight. As I walked out onto the ice flow with cleats I found a world of shapes and elegant beauty. I was transported to an Arctic environment, one of sculptured ice and snow. I spent many joyful hours out on the ice, amongst the bitter cold, alone and connected to the lake in a spiritual way. Little did I know that this 2014 display of ice would not easily be repeated if ever because of climate change? Every year since 2014 there has never been any ice formations even close to what I discovered in this special and unusual year. The warmer winters made this time on Lake Ontario’s shoreline ice unique
