Iced in

iced in

Swirly ice around a tree trunk at Håga. The horrible November weather continues. Rain and snow all day today. Grey skies and around 1 C, so the snow turns to water when it hits the ground. If you want to believe the Swedish Meteorological and Hydrological Institute we can expect a snow storm tomorrow with 2 decimetres of the white stuff, so hurrah for that!

I would take the snow. There is nothing worse than ice.

Luis Gomez said...

Very nice shot Steffe. Interesting!

Jacob said...

Oh sheesh! Ice and snow. No. We just got back from a bike ride. It's 72 going to 83 (F)...bright sun.

Cool photo, and I mean that literally!

Love the circles at base of tree . . .

Marie said...

It looks as if there is ice on the trunk too. I hope this bad weather wont last too long, Steffe. Good luck!

Halcyon said...

A lovely shot. I love the detailes in the ice. I can hold off on the snow though!

Nice image. Thanks. Looks like something I could find in my part of the world as far as the cold and ice.

Very cool shot, haven't seen one like that.
We have a few inches of snow right now with more on the way and then really cold temps are supposed to hit.
I really love snow, but not so much people who don't know how to drive in it.

Nice photo. It looks really cold there.

Thanks for visiting CDP today. If you were here and the friendly Griswold Inn's pub crawlers heard your Swedish accent, no doubt they would treat you to a beer or three.

Steffe said...

I would have to fake the accent Jack, because I don't have the typical Swedish accent, but hey, I'd do it for a few free beers, skål!

I totally agree B Squared.

Glad you are out and about again Jacob.

Actually this tree stands in water year round. On this day the ice was very thin no more than a few millimetre.

Sitting here in Melbourne, Australia in 34 degrees Celcius wishing for some of that snow!
Love that shot!

RedPat said...

Love the patterns in the ice and the way that the tree influences the ice formation. Great shot!

T. Becque said...

Wow, not to rub it in, but I went running with shorts and a tank top today.

brattcat said...

We're promised snow later this week too. Winter draws on.

What a beautiful shot! Thank you for all your comments on my site. I always appreciate what you say. My job/life is so busy that I feel lucky to at least post, let alone enjoy other photo blogs like yours. Your work always inspires me. Thanks again! LA from LA

Great sculptor work of nature, great image. We have the same snow-rain here today, and while I am reading your posts from oldest, I will see what you get on 24Nov a bit later. Interesting.
