03.17.2015 Double the fun

After last week, I really thought we had turned the corner into spring.  As I write the winds are howling and the temperature is falling.  Not as bad as a few weeks ago, but we’ll be in the teens for the next few nights and in the 30’s during the days, even with the strong sun.  There’s also a chance for some snow this weekend.  So much for the first day of spring.

So in honor of the lingering winter, here is another shot from that frigid morning at Gunn Falls a few weeks ago (2/1) combining two elements of the frozen waterfall.

    Brrrrrr. We’ve had rain here in PV – almost never rains in March. Apparently the snow has all melted in Winnipeg so it’s safe to return home in two weeks. Unless it’s a trick – Mother Nature can be devious.

  2. We’re well into mud-season here. No lambs yet – but soon. Near 50 the last couple of days with water all over the place. Can’t move the machinery without leaving the place looking like the Moon when I’m done. Now I’d like some dry weather please. Haven’t had any real time with the camera for weeks … perhaps I’ll simply sell the stuff … what say you? D

  5. I’m sorry to hear your retrospective view is still a prospective view.

    I really like that shot! Looks like a fantastic spot for a polar dip as long as someone else is doing it!

    This really is beautiful. It’s taken me a while to figure out what the formation on the right reminds me of, and tonight I finally saw it. The curve is much like that of an egret or heron preening, when they bend their head down, out of sight, and only the curve of the body remains. So lovely.


    • I really enjoy the visions you have of my images, Linda. I am generally fairly literal with them although I do have the occasional breakout of imagination. I would not have thought of a heron but now see it plain as day.

    Well, maybe a bit chilly, but I agree with Lyle: There’s still enough open water for the hardy among us to have a lovely, invigorating dip before it might freeze over again, don’t you think? And, pray, why not you, too, Lyle?

    • I have seen more than enough polar plunges and can confidently say that it won’t be me jumping in there.

        Candidly, I really must agree–unless a very-easily-accessible hot pool were just a few steps away. I’ve enjoyed a number of classic sauna passages while in Europe and Minnesota, including the traditional dive-and-roll in the snow, and if the hot pool comes right after the cold plunge, it can be an amazingly-invigorating experience. Just trust me.


      • At my age, that is not one of life’s experience that I feel is a must. I’ll take your word for it. Should my heart stop beating, maybe that will be the time to try it. 🙂
