    A perfect portrait of COLD!

    • Eliza Waters says:

      Thanks, it’s been very wintry, but today was mild (finally chopped the last of the ice off the driveway) and tomorrow it is supposed to rain heavily, which will clear the stream and river of all its ice. Clean slate for the cold that will follow. Ah, winter! ๐Ÿ˜‰

        Chopping ice off the driveway?!!! I just closed my eyes & put my fingers in my ears. Nooooo!

      • Eliza Waters says:

        2 inches of it – lol! You use a flat blade of a tool specifically designed for just this purpose, and pounding to break edges off, back and forth. You can see why it took several sessions to get it all done! And what a work out it is – ha! (My health secret to not being sore: magnets!)

  2. Beautiful. I’m going out to shovel a path to the feral cat house.

  3. A crisp reflection of winter.

    What a wonderful photo Eliza. I really like how the lighting draws you in from the bottom left side into the center of the photo where you can almost feel the cold.

    Beautiful image. So full of mood.

  8. Abstracts by nature, love it!

  9. Beautiful image. Looks more like a painting

    You would laugh if you saw the picture I took the other day. Identical, other than the kind of leaves. I love how you and I play with our similarities. A walk with you would be so fun, like we had known each other all our lives….since we were like, eight. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Well, I may be coming there in the fall. Let’s email when that time nears. That would be so lovely.

    A window into the cosmos… Carl Sagan would enjoy this photo too ๐ŸŒž

  13. LOVE this image! I have been wanting to fool around with some ice close-ups… you beat me to it! The colors and layered feeling is wonderful.

    Beautiful. I like the different colors and shapes and, well, everything. ๐Ÿ™‚

    This is like a poetry in Motion.. Picture perfect

  17. Brrrr! What a cool photo of leaves frozen in time (literally). All those layers are mesmerizing. Blessings and stay warm, Sarah

    So very beautiful, Eliza. In Maine, we, too, had a lashing rain, and most of the snow is gone. However, snow is slated for tomorrow, so its absence might be temporary. I hope it is. I don’t like bare ground in the winter, and I’m definitely not a fan of chipping ice in the driveway ๐Ÿ˜‰

    • Eliza Waters says:

      Thanks, Laurie. Yes, ice in the driveway is a pain. I’m glad we got it all up before it froze again. Because our yard slopes slightly to the north, we still have about an inch of crust left, with intermittent patches where footprints were. A good snow would make it more accessible and less treacherous. ๐Ÿ™‚

  19. Oh, I really liked this. Stunning!

  20. Very beautiful! I can feel the cold just looking at that glistening ice! I love when photos can do that, provoke strong feelings/emotions in us. The colors are very pretty! The clear bluish ice looks lovely against the gold of the Fall leaf.

  21. Perfect framing, Eliza!! Just beautiful!! โค
