Arctic Bubbledom

arctic-bubbledom

An image I came across looking through an older file of photographs of my beloved pond, where I was unable to return over the holidays this winter.  I’ve posted many images of the frozen pond here, but I have hundreds more in my archives. I never cease to be fascinated by the formations that bubble up in that pond in winter.  I miss my ice bubbles.

And then it snowed.

Before I move on entirely, I thought I could give proof that I do actually look UP from time to time. 🙂

While landscapes, or rather pondscapes in this case, are not my forte, you might be interested to see where I took all of the shots that I featured over the last month and a half.

Rejects, batch #3 (It’s a strange and fabulous world…)

Hi, everyone.  Here is the next round of remaining images from my frozen pond collection, photographs that didn’t make the cut for a feature post, but which I’m gathering together this week in batches to close out the series.

Rejects, batch #1

Okay, gang, I’m nearing the end of my ice series.  I have a large number of images left that I’d still like to share with you, but which I’ll group together  in sets this week, in somewhat of a haphazard fashion to speed things along, starting tonight.  In some ways, these photographs, for one reason or another, didn’t make my final cut when I was sorting through things and trying to decide what to post. So, for that reason, they’ve been booted to my own personal “Salon des refusés.” But that doesn’t mean I deemed these images unworthy of contribution;  it just means they didn’t fit whatever my purpose was whenever I posted.

So here, for what it’s worth, is batch #1, of the “refusés”:
