The Winter Hammock

Winter Hammock

Snow Grid


This is Santa's Winter Hammock. I did not know that when i took the photo, but two of my flickr contacts assured me that that was the case. Sadly the bearded fellow wasn't around for a photo-op, so a portrait of him will have to wait for another year.

Oh and this is now the coldest winter in recorded history in this part of the world.

Beautiful, Steffe.

Here's the reason why you and we in Florida and other places are having such cold winters - amazingly enough it is due to global warming!

These are a couple of very interesting images.

I brought my hammock inside so I could use it all winter. But our winter is so mild--with 4 days of rain instead of snow--that I could have just kept it outside. The weather is very strange in Colorado this year.

Yes that looks cold

la première, avec une bonne combinaison de ski, cela doit être assez sympa ;o)

This is a beautiful pair of images, Steffe. The details adds such depth to the first image.

I had thought that a cold winter refered to weather, whereas global warming refered to climate.

Looks inviting but guess nobody will be sitting there until after winter !

The climate on our little planet is changing so we should be prepared to see warmer summers, colder winters and more storms and what have you everywhere.

I think he found somewhere warm with a bottle of Gammel Dansk.

Love the way snow transforms everything and that you see it and capture it.

Ahh, but if he had been sitting in it, you wouldn't have gotten that great pattern shot!

It somehow does not look very inviting to lay down on. Love your Winter Solstice picture.

I love Christmas as much as I love winter. Too bad the East coast is now suffering from blizzards.According to Michael Geffrard, NY is now a city of snow. As I checked the temperature today, it is clear with areas of blowing snow and black ice. I just hope the weather will turn out good before New Year.
