Beauty in a Blackout

by Epic Mom on January 7, 2014

Our city’s recent blackout, gave us Torontonians a chance to stop and marvel at the might and wonder of winter. Here are some snapshots of the beauty I found during our blackout.

Wow. Those are some unbelievable icicles! What did you use to take the photos with? It’s great that you found a way to find some beauty amidst the darkness! ;)


Epic Mom January 16, 2014 at 6:12 pm

I actually took the photos with my new iPhone. Thanks to hubby! :)

I don’t envy your cold, but I certainly do envy your photo ops! These shots are simply fabulous!


Epic Mom January 13, 2014 at 4:09 pm

Thanks Betty. I don’t envy our cold either! :)

I love how you captured God’s landscape – thanks for sharing. Hopped over from Katherine’s Corner


Epic Mom January 13, 2014 at 4:07 pm

Thank you so much Antionette. It was easy to see the beauty of His creation, I just knew I wanted to capture it on film too.

WOW the beauty of Mother Nature!! We had a similar storm in MI a few years ago and also had lots of ice on branches. Thanks for the beautiful pics!


Epic Mom January 13, 2014 at 4:01 pm

Thanks Joann. :)

How gorgeous, sometimes even in these types of weather moments, we need to stop and stare.


Epic Mom January 8, 2014 at 4:12 pm

Thanks NYCSM, So true, I’m glad we stopped to savour the moment.

These shots are beautiful. Today was cold enough to snow but sunny. Later this week it will warm up and rain. Typical.


Epic Mom January 8, 2014 at 4:10 pm

Thanks Joyce. Yesterday it was so cold here that they cancelled the school buses. I think I’m ready to embrace the warmer temperatures and rain that you’ll be getting later on this week.

I agree they look very pretty not something you get to photograph very often ;-)

Have a good week ahead ;-)


Epic Mom January 8, 2014 at 4:02 pm

Thanks Steve, I hope you have a great week too. :)


Alissa Apel January 7, 2014 at 4:48 pm

The ice on trees is so pretty. Great captures. I love the lighting.


Epic Mom January 7, 2014 at 5:02 pm

Thanks Alissa! It was a challenge for many people in the city during the several day power outage/blackout, but it was important to hubby and I to take the time to point out the beauty found in nature and other people to our kiddies.
