So far it’s been a very, very cold winter.

So much for Gobal Warning.  (My annual political statement)

Because the temps have been so low, all the open water froze very early this year.  And have stayed frozen.  The downside is the very limited Bald Eagle sightings at the refuge.  Ducks, Herons and other shore birds have been missing.  Not a lot to photograph.  On occasion the Harrier Hawks and America Kestrels made an appeareance.

Yesterday I was fascinated by the Ice patterns on the Frozen waters.  For about an hour I walked out on the snow covered ice and photographed hundreds of shapes.




These shapes went on for as far as I could see.

There was some familiar shapes.  All created by mother nature.

  1. Hello,

    I’m writing from Dorling Kindersley’s Delhi office.

    We are working on a new book titled “The Cat Encyclopedia”. For this we would like to use an image of a “Minskin” cat.

    We were hoping if you would have some images for the breed and supply us the hi-res for the image.

    We would be crediting you for the image. We would like to use the image at 1/8th size of a page.

    By giving us the permission we understand we have your consent to use the images in world, all language, all edition (re-use) (including eBook) rights, plus for use in spin-off digital products of “The Cat Encyclopedia”.

    It would be great if you could get back to us regarding this at the earliest possible.

    Thanks so much for your help.
