01.28.2021 More winter blues

The colder it gets, the bluer the ice, at least in the camera sensor’s opinion.

We’re due for some single digits this weekend starting tonight with some wind chills below zero.  We’ll see if I’ve still got what it takes ( or maybe we’ll see if I’ve grown wiser with maturity).   🙂

    WOW–icy stalagmites! At first glance, I suspected that you had inverted the image, but it’s a natural formation–and a splendid one. What a great picture. Stay warm and stay well and keep shooting.

    Neat formation, fun catch! Be careful out there, Steve. I’m thinking of skipping the walks the next two days!

    The color’s lovely, but the clarity’s quite a treat, too. Speaking of treats, this is the kind of cold the ice stalagmites reminded me of.

  9. Neat capture, Steve! I like those greens at the top, too. As for going out in single digits, I understand the allure but hope wiser prevails!

    That’s got to be one of the most unusual images I’ve ever seen. Well done, Steve!

    better the ice turning blue than you! Brrr. We’re predicted to get a big storm tomorrow…I can already hear the wind blowing out there. This image is fascinating.

    • ABsolutely. I don’t want folks to think I’m a big smurf. 🙂 We are watching your storm and it will arrive mid-week, I think. Fortunately our temperatures will moderate by then.

        You’d think it would be running out of snow by now, after dumping so much out west first, and then about a foot (and counting ) here….

      • The last forecast I saw predicted possibly a foot in NYC. We seem to be in a slot that will only get 2-5 inches with more to our east and west.

        You’d probably like to get more to feed the streams, wouldn’t you? I keep telling myself all the benefits for the great piles of the stuff I’m seeing out my window…

      • Yes I do and the 10″ we received yesterday and overnight will help with the spring melt.

        That’s good, I’m glad to hear it. Sounds like the whole west coast will also be topped up and in good shape this spring…except, you know, for the parts that have been washed away!

        Need to get back out there do dig Pete’s habitrail out again, and extend it. As it is he comes in with snow balls stuck to him everywhere, poor little fellow.

    What an amazing formation! I assume that there was a lot of shade there – so more blue in the light. It gives a wonderfully cold look!

    The contrast between those warm-toned mushrooms and the ice, along with all the curvy shapes is just wonderful. Very cool, Steve!!
