Oh! How beautiful it is! And what wonderful shots you have! Yes, I can see how it could/would put your dreams of summer on hold. It's sometimes amazing all the places we can find beauty if we pause long enough to look! Have a great week, Mark!

Gorgeous shots Mark, the salt water does create some great formations. Sights like this can make us forget about summer for awhile.

I have been having trouble lately posting comments on some blogs, hopefully blogger has it fixed now.

Great shots. Cold weather seems to be the name of the game. We saw really neat ice on the rocks along Lake Eufala OK a few days ago.

Mark, I especially like the images' blending of the frozen and the melted, as the crystals form in very soft undulating shapes. The closeups were informative. I was wondering what the air temperature was when you took these shots.

Lily Robinson said...

One of the reasons I love winter. It amazes me how snow and ice can transform the things we see everyday into new works of art.

Great pics!

Mark Kreider said...

Air temperature was in the low twenties but with direct sun that was capable of some melt in the lee.

I would say that the pic of that big rock was taken somewhere on the North Shore of Long Island Sound. I use to see something like that when I launched a boat by a ramp that was at a place called Truman Beach back in the later 1960s.
