Ice, Ice, Baby

No, this week's theme is not on the revival of Vanilla Ice, or bad 90's pop tunes. Rather, it is on frozen H2O. Your photo must have, as its main subject, ice! Note that ice cream, Popsicle, frozen drinks, etc. are not eligible. It must be something that we normally associated as frozen water. So frozen lakes/rivers/etc, snow, ice cubes, etc. all qualify.

Good luck!


Contest Rules:

1. Any digital photo or digitally-scanned photo relevant to the theme will be accepted within the contest period. In case there's a gray area, or you're not sure if the picture is suitable, check with me first.

2. Please resize your digital photo to no more than 800 x 600 or 600 x 800 pixels. You may also crop your picture if you wish. You are also allowed to adjust the brightness and contrast of your picture but these should not dramatically alter the look of the picture. But other than those, any form of picture editing or modification is not allowed. This is a photo contest, not a picture editing/special effect contest. You may add a watermark or your name/nickname to the photo for identification purposes.

3. Upload your photos to any of the photo servers such as imageshack or photobucket. Then post it the relevant contest thread and link your picture using the img command. PM me if you do not know how.

4. Only ONE picture per member per contest. Once a picture is posted, it cannot be changed other than a total withdrawl by that member from that week's photo contest. Exceptions will be made for modification to comply with the rules, such as resizing.

5. At the end of the contest period, I will open a poll and every PF member can vote for the picture they like best.

6. Note that in case we have a large number of entries, I will do the polling in more than one thread. If that's the case, you can vote in each of the polling threads. The photos will be assigned in the polling threads in the order they were submitted.

7. These pictures must be something that you took, not something taken off someone else's photo albums or taken by someone else. I have no way of checking if you did this, so we'll go by the honor system.

8. You can use a picture only once. Once it is used in a contest, it cannot be reused in another contest.

9. Please post only pictures meant for submission in this thread. Photos not meant for submission must not be posted in the contest thread. Posting of more than one photos by a member may result in an automatic disqualification from the week's contest.

While the unseasonably warm weather is great, it's not conducive for ice... I was reduced to peeking into the department's ice machine, and was struck at how the texture is remarkably similar to that of burning coals:

This place hit the news today (for no apparent reason, other than we have a wave of very low temperatures here). And you know what - the sky was perfectly blue and there was plenty of Sun

My backyard pond froze over early this year. Unfortunately, it looks like an elk has fallen in and may have to be dragged out in the spring.

Glad I have a big tractor! That must be one BIG elk!
