Pond Bottom Churn



PHOTOGRAPHER'S JOURNAL: We've rounded the cusp, but it's too soon to feel the days getting longer, and winter's deepest blasts are probably gathering somewhere in the future, beyond the reach of forecast. For now we oscillate between freeze and thaw, part of the constant churning engine that makes tomorrow.

It's been awhile since I've been out shooting, and I've missed some great cloudscapes, an afternoon of fog, a morning of snowfall and ice melting along the river. Today never comes back after the ice has melted, and I hope for other snow and ice.

Great shot, as always...

Fabulous image, Ted! I love the way you see things!

And for us here in the Netherlands, FINALLY we will have winter, with temps just below freezing all week. We've waited for it all season. Let's hope it stays awhile and even brings snow? The main thing is for the canals to freeze so that the ice skaters can come out en masse!

So winterish!

Here it's been unusually warm. I saw a crocus blooming yesterday.

Hi Trotter - No problem. Thanks for visiting.

It was in the mid-40s today, Ginnie. Do you promise pictures of those skaters?

Yes, Tim, mostly warm here as well, but it's supposed to turn cold tomorrow.
