  1. Spectacular! The textures and subtle variations in color are just gorgeous. I’m sorry you had to suffer to get this, but I really appreciate it! We’re about 40 degrees warmer than you, and I’m not missing my Syracuse days, or my Hastings-on-Hudson days, or NYC days, not today. 😉

    • It’s very cold, but I enjoyed getting outside yesterday, I had my wisdom teeth out recently, and walking without a scarf was like a perfect ice pack. Then we went into Ithaca and had some hot soup! 🙂
      Happy New Year!

  2. Beautiful. I’d be jealous if I didn’t know how cold it needs to be to enjoy it. Sometimes there are advantages to vicarious adventures, even if they don’t measure up to the real thing.

    Or maybe not.

    • It really is pretty cold right now, and getting colder. But this falls is only a 3/4 mile walk from the road, on a level path. 99% of it is just dressing carefully – done correctly, you should end up looking like a small yurt. I’ve learned all the tartans, and identify people by their plaid scarves.

  4. Well, this certainly puts our grumping about cold weather into perspective. Even when we get below freezing next week (they’re forecasting the 20s) it won’t be cold enough long enough for much more than frozen bird baths and light skims of ice here and there. I’ll have to head to the fountain in a local park and see if there might be a baby icicle around — that’s probably the best that we’ll do.

    These are fantastic images — in every sense of the word. The photos themselves are wonderful, and the variety of forms and colors really rewards a nice, long look. I suspect it was worth the cold to see this in real life. Your comment about looking like a small yurt made me laugh, and think about Ralphie’s little brother in “A Christmas Story.”

    Your mention of going into Ithaca for soup got my attention. Have you been to Horseheads? One of my favorite people, an artist named Gary Myers, lives in Horseheads. He comments on my blog from time to time, and I never miss reading his blog, Redtree Times. He exhibits at the West End Gallery in Corning, among others. If you’re ever in the area, you might enjoy stopping in. One of these days, I’d enjoy making one of his openings, as well as seeing the glass museum, and the area generally.
