joco said...

That was an unusual phrase for Coleridge.

A nice fringe framing your soft sky.

It sure is, but what a beautiful blue sky.

Cold icicles and cold sky. Nice clicking.

EG Wow said...

Col shot of your cold world, Carletta!

Judy said...

Yup, that is what my world looks like just now, all except for the blue part... I am waiting for that!
I love the shot, though - an unusual treatment for icicles!

Riet said...

That looks cold. Great shot

Carver said...

It's cold indeed. I love the way the icicles look like they are coming from the sky.

healingmagichands said...

I agree with another commenter -- the contrast of the icicles against the sky is grand. Watch out for that one on the left though, looks a tad dangerous!

eileeninmd said...

Carletta: What a great winter sky framed with the ice.

Thanks for stopping by. This has been a tough winter in NE Ohio. We have had 6 foot of snow so far. Our average winter is 5 foot so we may break some records.

Fotobloggen 2011 said...

a wonderful combination, I like the angle of this shot a lot

SquirrelQueen said...

I had a very similar view a few weeks ago but now it is raining and warm. Probably just a short interlude before the cold returns.

HRANDICA said...

You've done wonderful job. Congrats!

Brit Gal Sarah said...

Have a great weekend & happy SWF!
