 Spotted on our walk up the river trail a few nights ago.

 The sheep pictures are more from my visit with them the other day just from a different camera.

 We went for a drive yesterday since it was a nice day.  Good thing because it snowed here today.  We wanted to go check out some new country for when the weather is warmer so we put a lot more miles on than usual.

The view of Osoyoos from the viewpoint on Hwy 3 heading east

These two images are where the snow ploughed up by the grader was melting.  Is this image a cat or is it a human leaning forward?

Captured the sun in this one

I liked the sky contrasting with the pine tree

I was trying to capture the snow sparkles

These basalt cliffs were made much more visible by a major forest fire recently.  They are just north of Rock Creek, BC. 

Back to the Okanagan River, these three images show the melting and revealing of the inner structure.

Almost gone

And this was how I spent some of my time the past week or so.  1000 pieces 24x30 inches it is a Vincent van Gogh montage.

 Since the lighting conditions were good, I thought I would pop up to the road above Vaseux Lake to get some nice shots of the massive ice sheets hanging on the cliffs.  Oops, the sun had melted them so most were gone already.  However, the large herd of Bighorn Sheep more than made up for the loss of the ice.  The neat thing about this area is that it is only a couple miles up the highway from home.

At one point, a large piece of ice broke off the cliff and came crashing down.  That startled the
herd and they stampeded for a minute but soon settled down.

 The following ice sculptures were all taken along the Okanagan River near home on my daily walks.  They are all melted now as we've had a couple days above freezing.  The hoar frost on the pines are taken by zooming way in on the trees on the skyline at the top of McIntyre Bluff.

I saw recently that these types of ice formations are called jellyfish ice.

American Dipper who came and sat near me while I was taking ice photos.

Does anyone else think this looks like a Scotty Dog?
