It does look beautiful!
Thanks, Pit, I think so too.
Try saying “No threat thwarts this thaw” quickly five times in a row.
😃 to my surprise, I actually could do that!
I’m worried you’re developing Daffy Duck Syndrome! or was that Sylvester
Daffy is likely akin to daft. Ducks are called ducks because they duck under the water for food. I suffer from Etymology Syndrome.
Real nice photo. It has a surreal quality to it.
Thank you, Neil!
Is this a recent photo, Robert? If so, like us here in Canada in the Interior of BC, you still have a long way to go before Spring arrives. Great photo in spite of the chill in the air!
Thank you, Peter, this was taken the same day, but two years ago.
It looks like a nice hike, but the very thought gives me cold feet.
It doesn’t bother me, except my fingers, which freeze up very quickly when I take them out gloves to take a picture.
I’ve always liked the way melting snow creates soft edges. Here, those snowy margins make a nice contrast with the sharper ice in the middle of the the brook. If we get another February like our last one, I hope it comes with more snow and less ice, so it will be easier to take to the outdoors.
Yes, I always watch out for those soft edges along the tops of ravines, although if the slope isn’t too steep or rocky, it’s fun to step out on them and make a mini-avalanche and slide down the side. I hope the next time you get a wintry blast, it’s nice soft snowfall and not ice.
No more scenes like this around here and happily so. I feel your pain. Regarding cold fingers. That is the bane of winter photography for me.
I used some of those hand-warmer chemical packets, that you shake to start the reaction, and stuck them in my gloves, that helped. Still going down in the 20’s at night around here, but we’re getting there, little by little.
I use those also in addition the liners and battery heated gloves. Still the Raynaud’s limits how long my fingers can take the cold.
