01.26.2021 Great Gobs of Globular Goodness

Maybe I am getting carried away with the alliteration?  🙂

The water was running very strong at Murphy Falls in Dean Brook on Sunday.  We finally had some winter cold and the temperature was @12°F.  My liners, unbeknownst to me, had fallen between the seat and passenger door so I only had my outer gloves and my fingers were as blue as this ice so I cut the shoot session shiveringly short.

I enjoyed capturing the drips from the water flowing behind the icicles seemingly frozen in motion.

    I will say that the first thing your title brought to mind were those infamous great green gobs of greasy, grimey gopher… Well, you know. I especially like the contrast between the smooth water and globular ice in the first photo.

    • Yes, I thought of that phrase too along with something one of Fred Sanford’s friends, Grady Wilson, used to say on Sanford and Son…”good goobily goop”. I tried to maintain some texture in the water but not so much that it competed with the ice’s solid quality.


  3. I’m with Liz, that second image with those layers draws me in. And that blue is quite dreamy.

  4. Even your copyright signature looks like it’s shivering.

  5. Contrasting the still with the moving, as here, often makes for good pictures.

    Nice captures, Steve. Though very cold, the ice has been wonderful. The flat pool patterns are particularly fascinating. A pity it will be all covered up with today’s storm. It’ll be different, but equally intriguing.
