Icescapes

Late fall and winter are my least favorite seasons, but I do have to admit that snow and ice can create some beautiful landscapes. Glaciers, snow on frozen water, and blocks of naturally formed ice are the chilly subjects of the photos featured in this week’s post.

After living through a week of  temperatures dropping down to about 25° F overnight, I appreciate the photographers’ determination to take these pictures in spite of the cold. Now I have to return to finishing my homework. I decided to return to school to get a certificate in web design, and I have to finish my final web development project for my beginning web design class, which is due in a few days. Then I get to take a final exam for the same class next week. Stay warm, and I hope to get back to you soon. 🙂
