Many of us use the winter months as a time to hibernate; tucked under blankets with a warm beverage, binging on our favourite television shows, or getting caught up on our “must-read” book list. While this may be an easy escape for a short time, it seems like such a waste to miss out on the prefect opportunity to see our great county during the winter months. Sarnia-Lambton has some amazing locations to see when covered in freshly fallen snow and with these ‘Top Five’ hot-spots for photographs, you can be sure to create lasting images of an incredible winter.
Blue Water Bridge – Point Edward
This location is breathtaking any time of the year, but in the winter the snow and ice makes Point Edward and the Blue Water Bridge look like a winter wonderland. Take a selfie with the bridge glistening in the background, or hone your landscape photography skills by capturing the unique ice formations that are created along the St.Clair River.
Pinery Park – Grand Bend (Lambton Shores)
The Pinery Park is the perfect location to showcase your favourite winter adventures. From snowshoeing and cross country skiing to tobogganing and walking through the snow covered trails, you will be able to show your friends and family that a little bit of cold weather won’t stop you from conquering the great outdoors.
Sarnia Sting Hockey Game – Sarnia
Hockey is our national past time, from watching our national teams win gold medals, to cheering on our favourite player, we love to see the fast –paced action up close and personal. What better way to show that you are a die-hard sports fan than snapping a quick selfie during the action of the Sarnia Sting hockey games. You might even get a photo with your favourite player.
Canatara Beach/ Seaway Kiwanas Animal Farm – Sarnia
A perfect family outing during the snowy weather is visiting the Canatara Beach and Seaway Kiwanas Animal Farm. Take a stroll (and a snapshot or two) as you walk along the waterfront, or as your family visits the farm animals.
Rock Glen Conservation Area – Arkona (Lambton Shores)
This unique natural location is home to a summer hot-spot for visitors and photographers. Why wait until summer to snap a photo when you can visit this scenic location all-year round. Explore the trails and lookout locations, including the waterfall, and get a new seasonal perspective while taking some amazing photographs.
No matter what location you choose to photograph, make sure to share your story with us on social media. We can’t wait to see what you have conquered this winter.
