Before you roll your eyes or nod off in boredom at even more lake pictures please bare with me, I have a point to make!
When I read that this weeks Gallery theme was Sun I thought it was the ideal opportunity to show what a sunny country I live in.
My first picture was taken in early February 2013 after an intense snowstorm when the temperature was somewhere around -20C.
The second picture was about three weeks ago in mid of June when it was about +30C
As you can see the common factor, despite a massive 50 degree difference in the temperature, is of course the sunshine.
Here in Canada we are lucky enough to get a lot of sun regardless of the season, bright sunshine in winter however can often mean plummeting temperatures but our sunny summers mean plenty of opportunity for enjoying the great outdoors.
