Broken and slowly melting away

Life is a bit hectic at the moment.  Sometimes the only constant in my life is my love for nature, anything else will eventually fade away or break down.  Here are some photos taken during the past two weeks.

I bought a new camera lens during the holiday break - the M.Zuiko 14-42mm f3.5-5.6 II R.  It is a kit lens that usually comes with entry-level cameras, but now I can attach it to my camera without needing an adapter, which makes my camera less bulky and much lighter.

Rideau River.

The Rideau Canal finally opened (partly) on January 23rd.  This the part not opened.

It was full moon on the 23rd.

Closed Rideau Canal
Then Ottawa had several warm periods, leading to the closure of the canal.

Melting away.

There were many Winterlude ice sculptures succumbing to the warm weather.  Here is one of the few that remained upright - The Master of the Cliff by Kee Gawah and Koji Kareki.

This is what happened to the melted ice sculptures.  Just like my heart at the moment.

No one around to enjoy Winterlude (taken during mid-day this Wednesday).

Quite a contrast compared to last year's January (see here).
