The next task on my agenda was to practice the handling of the Killarney trees. The pines are heavily flagged to the northeast due to the prevailing and strong southwesterly onshore flows. I worried at the start but it turned out very well indeed. It did capture the scene without painting each pine needle.This scene is in the appropriately named Red Rcok Bay.

It was still only 10 Celsius and the wind made it feel much colder. It was an awkward place to set up an easel but I liked the curve of the beaver dam in the foreground and the colours in the trees and how they were reflected and refracted in the water. This was an active dam as witnessed by the fresh greenery added to the top and the nearby and fresh beaver "chews". Darn it was cold though! My hands can't take the cold ever since I froze them in the 1990's.In Google and Map Source, this waterway is called the "Megazing River". I got the name from the road sign which I trust!
