Ice Capades

Saturday afternoon Saint Tim and I headed to the river. There is an otter family over there and I was hoping they'd be out and willing to work a photo shoot. No such luck, but it was a nice afternoon regardless.



Yes, he's wearing waders, but apparently it was still pretty cold.



I tried to catch some interesting pictures. I like the "conflict" between the still water and where it turns to riffles.



Little fairy houses?









Hobbit houses?



And a little good news for those of you jonesing for spring. These geese were actually flying north. They've been flying east (?). I'm trying not to think about it.

Fascinating water and ice photos. The ones by the tree look like a place for the Keebler elves.
As for the flock of geese, it could be lead by a male who won't stop and ask directions!

That water sure looks cold!
I love your fairy houses and hobbit homes :)

I sure hope those geese are heading north and that's another sure sign of spring - I'm more than ready.

Beautiful--those must be snow fairy houses! It's snowing here (!) and Finley approves. Pigs must be getting ready to fly next.

nice photo's. According to our weatherman, the snow is still coming, a few inches this weekend and then a bigger one first of the week.

I would not stand in that water (even with high waders) for all the tea in China. Nice shots.

Fun photography day! But, that water does look awfully cold even with the waders.

Your photos are great! BRRRR. For some reason I always think Kentucky should be green and never full of snow. Shows you I don't know anything really.

Love the pictures. A good reminder to stop and just look at what is around us. On the geese front, it ain't looking so good here. Two nights ago three huge flocks went over...flying BACK towards the south. The last bunch went over after dark and I seriously thought my house had been surrounded by coyotes the noise was unbelieveable. The geese had to have been flying pretty low at that point.
