Cool Stuff I See When Rusty and I Walk the Dog!



Bacchus, Rusty and I walk around our water hyacinth infested pond a few times each day. I'm
looking forward to 11 degrees and below freezing the next couple of days because I hope it will do some major damage to this plant. Unfortunately it will probably also kill all the frog eggs that seem to be all around the pond.

The photo below is ice on the pond surface . I might try to make an image for photoetching silver with that one. Pretty cool!
We have 10 rain barrels to collect water. 9 had ice on them and 1 didn't. I took the photo because I thought that was cool. Then I looked at the photo and saw the reflection, way cooler!





















Trenches for the asparagus beds! And more ice!













Well it isn't too cold out this morning, it was 41 at 9 (forecasted high of 38) but supposed to start dropping! It could be worse, at my parents home it is 10 now wih a low of -5 tonight. Now that is cold!!!

I like the rain barrel shot most because of the way the reflection of the post next to the rain barrel is perfectly lined up with the post itself outside the barrel.

I know, me too! I was just shooting stuff and then when I saw the reflections of the pole and tree I was amazed. You just never know, at least not when you are an amateur photographer like me.

A photographer friend of mine made a category on his blog called "from the hip" - pictures he happens on by mistake or without realizing what he's shooting.

I like this one:

I bet it's icy and snowy there today! Snow is falling as I look out my window in Raleigh today. Hope you have a fun walk in the snow.
