Dennys Photo Gallery: Winter Ice and Snow

From Denny:  Here I am in the middle of a Spring pollen blizzard with 85 degree weather posting winter snow and ice photography.  Uh, the rest of the nation may not be south Louisiana like where I live. In fact, here it is late March and parts of America are still experiencing snow storms and icy driving conditions. The month of March this year of 2011 refuses to go out like a lamb but rather prefers to be a drama queen and exit like a lion!

Just think, you can revisit this post come July when the weather is sweltering and you are fondly remembering cold weather as something wonderful. Enjoy my visual vacation where I rest from writing by combing through Flickr looking for interesting photos to fit a theme. You get to see some new photography talent and lovely images along the way.  I try to feature and promote photographers, both amateur and professional, from all over the world.  I'm an equal opportunity photo junkie...

looking back

looking back photo by gerrybuckel @ flickr, from Michigan, USA - makes you wonder what is going on the mind of that deer, doesn't it?  Probably something like, "Got chocolate with a chaser of milk?"

The Starling poem

"'I can't get out', said the starling."
Sterne's 'Sentimental Journey.'

Forever the impenetrable wall
Of self confines my poor rebellious soul,
I never see the towering white clouds roll
Before a sturdy wind, save through the small
Barred window of my jail. I live a thrall
With all my outer life a clipped, square hole,
Rectangular; a fraction of a scroll
Unwound and winding like a worsted ball.
My thoughts are grown uneager and depressed
Through being always mine, my fancy's wings
Are moulted and the feathers blown away.
I weary for desires never guessed,
For alien passions, strange imaginings,
To be some other person for a day.

- Amy Lowell, The Starling

Abominable Snow Dawg

Abominable Snow Dawg photo by Christmas w/a K @ flickr - OK, this little guy is irrestible!

From the photographer: "Snow is like crack for Belle - she will roll, eat, jump, lay in it as long as she can. Major frolicking has happened all week for her.  After this snowfest, I started putting snow on her head when we'd go out - she loved it and would then start her crazy snow plow moves and rolling and eating it. Yay - Belle is in the top 20 photo results when searching "snow" on flickr! Dec 17, 2010."
