I. Just.Can’t.Stop.  🙂

This has been a great year for ice pendants and I’ve tried to make the most of it.  Although close ups like this can make them all look the same, or similar at least, each is quite different. I’ve been making images of these for quite a few years now and don’t get bored at all.  Maybe I am just too easily amused.

Although I did want to enhance the ice by having a dark background, I was happy to retain some of the reflections in the water below although they don’t resemble the icicles at all. And once again I was fortunate to have a little bit of color in the ice.

BTW, for Steve Schwartzman and anyone else curious, it seems that my images were going into the menus because they were cut and pastes rather than media adds. At least that is the only reason I saw for it.

    Pralines. Those icy puddle look precisely like pralines being dropped onto waxed paper. Add a few pecans, and they’d be perfect.

  2. So that makes two problems solved: images sloshing over into the sidebar, and not being able to get the degree symbol (°) to show up in your WordPress posts. (Sarcastic me thought about commenting yesterday that the easiest way to have the degree symbol show up is to use a Macintosh.)

    I think the faint ice reflections in the water are a good touch.

    • One more problem solved making that three. The hyperlinks in my email notifications were not working in Comcast, my ISP. It took some searching, but now I have to right click and select “show in new tab” which would have happened automatically with a left click. I am not a fan of Comcast’s email service but that’s our choice here. When they upgraded their software a few years ago I lost every single one of my email contacts. They were not at all helpful.
      I prefer just a hint of something in a black/dark background. Looks a bit more realistic.


  3. This image stopped me dead in my tracks. It deserves, and got, a long stare. And the subtle reflections in the water are a big part of why. And, keeping up with the theme of my own recently, I can hear this image. It’s the hard ice silence.
