Frozen

The power of winter

Stops water in its tracks —

Frozen tracks.jpg

Freezing reflections and skies

Onto its icy surface.

Scenes like this make me want to burst out into song: ‘The cold never bothered me anyway.’

    “Scenes like this make me want to burt out into song: ‘The cold never bothered me anyway.’”

    Me as well, Fiona. There is something glorious about the cold of winter and the way it transforms nature in to a different kind of beauty. To me there is something utterly beautiful about the barrenness of the cold and winter.

    Amazing photographs, my friend! Have a super weekend!

  75. Ladyfi, Your sky shot with the frozen water shots are beautiful. I love how the clouds swirl against the orange sky. You a special knack for getting right time after time. I remember my first and only visit to one of the Great Lakes in Feb. 2000 and having that sense of wonder seeing such a vast body of water that was frozen ~ so awesomely amazing! The wind was so horrible that we could only stand outdoors long enough to capture a family shot, then back in the car we got. lol
