Frozen

Langhorne, Pennsylvania                                           Core Creek Park frozen solid.

Without making any global warming jokes I'll just say it's really cold here and we have lots of beautiful snow. This is a photo that I took a few weeks ago when it was cold but not as cold as it is now.  I know some people don't like cold weather but I'm the opposite. I like the cold and I love snow but I can't stand hot weather. Yesterday I enjoyed a long walk when it was 15°F or -9°C,  but this morning it dropped down to -5°F or -21°C. Maybe someday the cold weather will bother me but for now it's something new and I like it.

  3. That sounds really cold James. I like the trees with the backlight. Sometimes it gives also a sparkle in the snow . Nice one.

  9. I admit I love all climates, as I love variety. Too much of anything makes me antsy. Anyway, I love the silvery glow of your image and the radiating shadows. I can hear the muffled silence punctuated by the crunch of footsteps on frozen snow. A beautiful mood.

  10. I don't like the cold as much as I once did. Walking about helps!

  11. I'm glad you like that cold. Somebody has to give it some love and it can't be me.
    Gorgeous light here...streaming thru the trees. Looks like that bench is available for you to have a little picnic.

  12. Love how the ground is reflecting the light - glittering! And the pattern the trees are making on the ground because of the light! You really made this shot all about the light - very nice! And I love the cold weather!

  13. Je suis comme toi, j'ai horreur de la chaleur , et j'aime le froid;MAis je crois que je n'ai jamais connu de temperature aussi basse.
    J'aime beaucoup le jeu des ombres dans ta photo, et aussi le banc solitaire, bien sûr... :o)

  14. Bonne Année à toi et à ton épouse !
    Je pense que tu vas être heureux avec la vague de froid qui sévit sur cette partie de l'Amérique - nous suivons cela sur les journaux télévisés !
    Ici, c'est plutôt pluie, pluie, pluie...
