This photo is of an island in Whitefish Lake near Thunder Bay, Ontario. I imagine if the temperatures have been sub-zero in the -18C/0F range or colder then it would be quite the trek across the ice to the island to see what was there. Though a boat or canoe would do nicely in the summer.

Although February is often cold, snowy and definitely winter in Toronto, we have been having a mixture of freezing cold with blowing snow followed by milder temperatures just above the freezing mark. I have never known a winter quite like this. I expect there are varying temperature fluctuations all around the globe.

We've had virtually no winter here in the Peace Country. Perhaps a week and a half of cold. It isn't doing the oil patch business any good.
I look at your picture and think about the early trappers working that country. Great fun!

At least it made for some nice patterns in the snow.

We have (so far) had one of the mildest, windiest and wettest winters I can remember.

What an interesting-looking island. It might make for a nice snowshoeing afternoon.

Very cool. Scenes like that engage my imagination so strongly.

What a striking shot! I'm with Charles on this pic stoking the imagination.
