    Winter landscape

    The temperature here in Anchorage was supposed to reach 20 F today. It never made it. I think that the high was closer to 10F. It's now just above 0F. From what I've seen on the news, winter in the rest of the US is colder than was expected.

    To commemorate this unanticipated change in temperature, how about a new landscape thread with the theme of winter?

    Here are three to start it.
    1. Frozen Portage Lake in late afternoon, Chugach National Forest, AK
    2. Tidal ice plates near Homer, AK
    3. Ice pans in tidal area along Cook Inlet, AK

    We are having a much colder winter than we have had here for many years in the UK, even southern UK has not escaped sub zero temperatures and heavy snow.

    This picture here on my homepage was taken a few weeks ago before all the snowfall and is a shot of hoar frost in a local forest in Hertfordshire, it is only about the 3rd hoar frost I have ever seen and this time I was ready.

    It was made from 3 4x5 transparencies scanned on an Imacon X5 and stiched together in CS3. I used back shift on my Arca to take the 3 shots.

    Julian - A very strong sense of place and very forbidding.

    Michael - Frozen waterfalls in B&W give a much greater sense of cold than doing it in color in warm light. All three of my photos were made some years ago during a sustained period of -15F to -20F. But they don't convey the sense of cold that I get from your B&W waterfall.

    The scary thing is...that ain't no waterfall. That's a road cut along the side of the freeway going down toward Montpelier,
