2012-12-30 146Winter Niagara Falls Views 尼加拉瓜大瀑布冬景

Today we had a enjoyable trip to Niagara falls for pictures taking. About 145 km from Toronto city (home) to Niagara falls. It took us 1.5 hours to get to there.
今天抽空老公開車,我們到了尼加拉瓜大瀑布拍一些冬景照片. 約145公里車程單程為1個半小時.

Maybe because it was cold, today’s visitors were not so many.
I love the looks of trees were all covered with ice and snow! So pretty and special!
大概因為天冷的關係今天的遊客並不多. 因為覺得樹上的冰雪很美特別拍了一些有樹的雪景.

Enjoy the photos I took.
希望大家會喜歡我拍的景色.

These pine in winter, its pine needles will turn golden yellow 冬冷松針變金黃的松樹品種


They are in the market now…but still rare to find!  Pine needles are green when the weather is not cold, in cold winter the needles turn golden yellow..striking!

 

這種新流通市面的變色松(溫暖時綠色,冬冷松針轉變成金黃色)做成盆景應該令人刮目相看吧?  高山上造景應該夠特別!
Upright 直立樹型: Pinus contorta ‘Chief Joseph’

可是時間要算好,要春天到時有得種小實生苗. But I have to time it right for the seedlings to grow outdoors in spring.
