Blogging along on my journey to wherever it is I'm going
Fascinating. I can't imagine somewhere so cold. What was the netting for? To keep folks from falling in? Was the pond frozen too?
GG - the netting was to keep leaves out. the water was cold but not frozen.
Besides being a beautiful photo, it reminds of the a chorus line - dancing icicles.janeyhttp://janeysjourney.com
My sister says that the netting is to stop their cat, Jazz, from fishing and also to stop the fish from jumpint out! She has some koi and they like jumping!She guesses it was around -4 or -5.Janey - I love the idea of it being a chorus line! Think what sort of music they'd like best!
I was going to ask the same question that guyana-gyal asked. Fascinating and shiver-inducing photo!
Laura - its true - what makes me feel cold is imagining my sister getting down onto the ground as I assume she must to take this picture!
Caro, for a minute I thought it was the South Pole, No joke!What a great photo! Well done, Caro's sister!
Thanks for sharing this with us. It's an eye opener for sure! Beautiful.
Thanks Cream and Andrea - I'm passing everyone's comments on to my sister and she is really appreciating her photo being appreciated!
Fascinating photo... and your sister captured the transparency of the icicles so well!As for the star... I'd say it weighs maybe 15 pounds... not very heavy for how big it is... The "balls" are actually plastic (which is nice because I'm not so worried it'll break in storage) and wired (I think) onto a big star shaped armature, with tinsel garland/fringe around the edges and in some of the "holes". I'm wondering if one could do something similar with styrofoam and metallic paint or gauze...... Love your art and comments. Hope your landlord person gets a clue.
Thank you sulty painterwoman. And thanks for the detail about the star. I think making one might be a good project!
This is an amazingly beautiful picture - and actually gave me goose flesh. It looks sooooo cold.
Thanks rebekah - I've past your compliments onto my sister!
it's so beautiful like icicle keys on an ice piano!
It looks like a shark's-eye view of a busy day at the beach.
Amazing! And I'm with you... who knows what she had to go through to get this picture. Brrrrrrrrr!
I agree-it is stunning. Cheers!
it is stunning! wow.
Spectacular ... I needed ice for my ginger ale :)
That is a very cool photo. The icicles look like they are dancing...many tiny ballerina feet on their tippy toes.
Thank you everyone - my sister has been really surprised at so many comments on her photo!
Very nice image and great composition. The mirror-like reflection coupled with the shallow Depth of field really make it stand out.
