that second one (all are swanky, the textures are amazing) but that one reminds me of someone doing the dead man's float. I'm not sure why, and I totally mean that as a compliment.

Laura said...

Wow! Gorgeous pictures!
It has been VERY mild this winter.

What day did you take these beauties?

No ice down here in Margaritaville, err Columbus.

Your etudes au photographie sont magnifiques. See? I'm becoming a right forriner.

Randal Graves said...

duchess, I think the second one turned out the best, too, but I'm kicking myself for not getting more angles of that "scalloped" one towards the middle. The wind did a number on the ice to make it look like the shrooms you'd see on a fallen tree.

laura, I haven't missed shoveling the driveway, but 60° in January is for Arizonastan, not Clevelandia.

if, your reading comprehension membership is hereby revoked!

susan, vous oubliez "vous." What are you, a Yank?

Demeur said...

Graves you bastard!

Now I can't get that earworm out of my head.

I saw the yesternoon bit, but that isn't conclusive, dammnit!

It's been about 92 degrees down here in Columbus for the last two days.

Jim H. said...

Nice nice baby.

Winter completely skipped us here. It's kinda' spooky. Stuff's blooming already.

Randal Graves said...

demeur, much more frightening than fat Immortal.

if, conclusive? Do I look like a technocrat? I want you to recite four Our Fathers and five Vanilla Ices.

jim, how much winter do you guys actually get outside of a bit o' frost, the occasional snowfall?

Tom Harper said...

What Demeur said. Now I'm gonna have Vanilla Ice reverberating inside my head for the rest of the day.

Beach Bum said...

Oh Christ in Heaven, I've gone seriously meganerd, saw the pictures and all I could think of was the ice planet Hoth and Han Solo slicing open a really furry giant kangaroo.

Jim H. said...

Frost, ice storms, and occasionally snow. If we don't get at least 2-3 weeks of sub-freezing nights, the mosquitos swarm. Malaria won't be far behind. Then yellow fever. Then bubonic.

This has been highly unusual. Hell, we've had tornado warnings in fucking January.

S.W. Anderson said...

Some excellent images there. I envy you the mild temperature for February.

Randal Graves said...

tom, the simplest plans are often the most diabolical.

BB, as if there's something wrong with digging the masterful Empire. Fly proud the flag of geekery.

jim, so what you're saying is that instead of death by viral apocalypse, 2012 is gonna go Old Testament. Have you at least stocked up on cans of chicken noodle and shotgun shells?

SWA, I'm glad I got some at least mildly interesting shots and that I haven't had to shovel too much, but it's been waaaaay too warm.

Snave said...

That is ice worth preserving!

My crocuses (croci?) are beginning to bloom. I shout at them, "get back in your dirt until you time arrives, you dastardly crocusesis.
