Travel Day

It was just above freezing. The droplets of water were not ice? Colleen and I disagreed but no one got out of the car to prove the point. Elsewhere someone was having a very bad day in the fog on the mountain. The traffic on the other side was completely blocked. You just can’t drive that fast in the fog.


Ice

Literally! What happens when you don’t defrost your freezer in 4 years? Yes, it’s not a frost-free fridge. We ignored it. It was forgotten. And the ice was impressive. It was a solid block. The door was sealed. I melted the whole thing slowly. Hair dryer! Repurposed! The food was funky. The ice cream was still viable. There’s nothing there now; we don’t need to store anything frozen. Perhaps it will be ice free?


Blackwater Fall

A long long time ago… I saw this image in a travel brochure. It was a winter view of the falls with ice and snow and … oh my! It has been on my bucket list of images. Remember I’m a photo opportunist at heart. So it was not OCD enough for me to make a special trip. I was just keeping the image on my list. The point is to shoot the image yourself. Otherwise the internet will provide you with far better shots than I got. I did not hike down to the ideal location to capture the image. My OCD does not extend forever. I could have done better. I wonder why I did not go further. Time was limited. It was slippery. But, I was there, And, this is my shot. Done.
