cosmic ice

One of the nice things about living in an ice box (Webster – Where Life is Worth Living) is, well, ice!  Right now we have a lot of ice.  And snow,  And frigid cold weather. But we only have about another 150 days of this left so I like to make the most of it.

The last photo was taken with the Samsung Note 8.

And for those who took the time to read this far, here’s the Bonus Musical Treat (BMT)!

      Thanks, Emilio. The Note 8 is a great tablet. I used the 10 inch iPad at work and find it a little too large for sitting and reading (and playing, which I don’t do at work). It seems to have a fast processor and the camera is very nice, better than I expected. This photo was processed in Snapseed, which I downloaded because your photos looked so good with it.

    Oh, wonderful ice images (I really like the first one) from your place (Webster – Where Life is Worth Living) 😉

    And the last one… the trees. Absolutely lovely image, Ken!!

      Thanks, Mel. Yes but be aware that the first three weeks of Spring are like the last three weeks of Winter. In other words, cold and possibly snow (still).

        Not quite. We have a reasonably nice Fall season which lasts as long as 2 weeks and a Summer, which is very unpredictable. It’s almost long enough to grow tomatoes completely outside.

    I’m always envious of how ice carries so much detail and that looks good as any type of abstract, especially in B+W which, of course, is it’s natural colours, almost!

      I feel the same way about it, Janina. But as winter gets deeper into the year the ice can look very unappealing. It’s best when the cold weather is just starting and a thin layer forms on the surface.

    Ah, now that picture with the screen is really, really fine. Particularly great is the yellow strip at the side, which takes the picture just a step further away from “representation of reality”, and gives it a strangely nostalgic, “found” quality.
    Discovered your pictures recently, very glad to have done so.

    From pictures like these I can honestly say we don’t get enough ice around here. Certainly cosmic and a good companion to your cosmic concrete shots.
