Photo of the Week: Snow shower

A young boy gives himself a snow shower in Mackie Park following last weekend's snowfall.

A young man gives himself a snow shower while walking through Mackie Park.

“I was trekking the fresh snow in Mackie Park early this morning, trying to snap a few beautiful black and white patterns in the woods. About 8 a.m., the city’s snow plow drove by and cleared the main walkway of the park, a path kids going to Gray Elementary normally take. The handsome young driver smiled and waved me good morning from his cute orange toy truck.

“Soon, kids wearing backpacks and towing ski-doos started to flow by. A few boys couldn’t help stopping here and there, playing with the white fluff. Perhaps seeing me shooting a close-up of the snow-covered pine cones, a bigger boy thought it would be great fun shaking the snow flour off by jump-pulling a low branch over the path. He called to his younger audience, ‘Look, I can get a snow shower!’

“Sure enough, he got a bucket full.”
