SUNDAY-STILLS-PC-Frozen

These  are the sort of conditions…

…we think of as ‘freezing’…

…a heavy frost.

 

 

However, a frost always brings a nice sunny day,

even if it is not that warm.

The winter of 2007 I saw water running

where it shouldn’t have been one morning.

Stopped as suddenly as it began.

Next time it happened camera and ladder were nearby

and I captured these photos

of what I term a horizontal icicle.

To the best of my knowledge

it has never happened again.

Week 104

Ice

Another hard challenge this week.

An ice rink in Melbourne.

 The first and only time I have seen it was in July 2015.

 

This is the sort of ice I usually see.

No more than a heavy frost.

 

During our second winter here I found this

horizontal icicle stretching from the roof

across to the outside edge of the spouting/gutter.

My contribution for this week’s challenge…

Unusual

~~~~~

This year was the first year for a long time…that we had a heavy frost.  

Much of our lawn is now brown,

with some green roots.  

Weeds like this bent over for a few days

and now continue to thrive.


The first half decent photo I have taken of

Geelong before sunrise.

 

Same morning as above, straight out of the camera.  

I think the slow shutter speed (1/3 sec)

helped the red show through.


Last but not least, I have posted this previously.  

However it is unusual to see

a rainbow, in the west, as the sunrises.

Odd Ball

Week 27, 2017

~~~~~

Sunday morning seemed like a good day to

rise early and take a photo or two….

particularly as barking dogs, ours included had woken me

at 0200 and I had about twenty minutes sleep thereafter.

 A few kilometres into my journey I glanced at the

temperature readout in my car and saw that it was

a balmy -5 degrees Celsius.

 After being outside for about an hour my finger tips

had no feeling so I decided to return home,

only to be greeted with this sight in our backyard.

I will concede that frosts are not unusual,

it is just that we have not had a frost

for nearly two years,

let alone one as severe as this.
