Day 7/365: To heck with icicles in Florida



I've been so envious of everyone and their pictures of all the beautiful snow and icicles that I decided to go in search of my own "wintry scene" here in Florida. I drove around and saw a fire hydrant that had burst and was spraying water on the nearby grass and bushes and it was just cold enough for the water to freeze. So I ended up getting beautiful icicle pictures just as I imagined, and then I thought "Aw, hell, this is the Sunshine state. I gotta show the sun!" So I saw a bush that had only been halfway sprayed and still had lots of greenery and the sun was coming in at a perfectly angle. So I ended up with this not so lovely picture! Enjoy, or not....LOL! There's always tomorrow. I promise to redeem myself and get serious about this 365 project!!

What I love about this photograph: Ummmm, it's a photo!
Technical Stuff: Nikon D40; 40.0mm; 1/200s; f/7.1; ISO 200

Cold enough to freeze in sunny FLA?! Wow!

I think it's cool the way the icicles just molded to the grass -- it barely looks like the grass is weighed down at all. Nifty.

My parents in Omaha report that they are asking people to dig out the fire hydrants just so firefighters can get to them. They even have to dig out their mailbox everyday! I much prefer this image. :)

I see enough ice around here - I'm thrilled with looking at your sunshine!
It is a neat shot though and I'm impressed you found ice down there!

What I love most is ice! in FLORIDA! I really like this picture. You must live in North Florida, though. ;-)

It gets cold enough in Florida for water to freeze? 0.o If you really want some snow, you can come visit me, lots of it here. hah

I like the composition.

This is a lovely shot! It looks like the ice is attacking the foliage. Nice work in finding exactly what you were looking for.
