Ice




My « real » post for today is below, but from a walk yesterday morning I thought I had to show that Paris had this winter's first frost night and that there was just enough of thin ice to support the seagulls. It’s getting warmer again.

I like the tall weeds surrounding the ice patch as well as the sweet little birds. Very nice photo...they seem to like the ice.

I see that it's going to rain and be cloudy the rest of the week. I'd like to think Paris is "weeping" because I've left !HA I believe I saw more seagulls in Paris this week than I have on trips to the beach!

Une photo prise dans le "Marais" ?

Bien entendu cette photo n'est pas d'aujourd'hui (nous avons +11 de plus) ni d'hier (+1), peut-être de samedi (-3) ou plus vraisemblablement de dimanche ?
On dirait que le plan d'eau s'est fait une raie bien droite...

Peter said...

Cergie: Si, elle est prise hier matin! :-)

La surface de l'eau a gelé par chez nous aussi il y a quelques jours, mais maintenant il pleut dessus. Et je crois bien que la surface a fondu
depuis. Le temps n'est pas terrible, mais les mouettes supportent tout, même la couche de glace qui les supporte.

So beautiful photo, Peter!
Amazing reflection!

Kate said...

A different view of Paris that you normally post, and I like it!

Nathalie said...

Peter - what do you mean, "my real post"??? This is worth a post in its own right, it's an amazing photo, especially when you think it's been taken in Paris. Where exactly?

Magdalena said...

Beautiful :-)

Ici après deux ou trois matinées avec ds gelées, il fait doux comme au printemps.
Très beau et instructif ton précédent post.

C'est fou quand même ces variations de température. Notre organisme est mis à rude épreuve. Il a fait un froid de canard durant toute la semaine et soudain hier, les températures remontent. Aujourd'hui il pleut en plaine. En montagne, le temps paraît agité. Je crois que je vais rester au chaud.
Dis, où sont les patins à glace pour ces petites bestioles??

La Petite Gallery said...

Fantastic photo Peter.
Love your head, you have a great eye for beauty.

Oh, I do love this! I reminds me of a post I did about two weeks ago, where the ducks were doing as your seagulls do -- standing and walking along the reflected frozen waters of my favorite pond. I do love the white on white, though!

Ash said...

Gorgeous photo, Peter!

Eleanor said...

Nice capture. Thanks for joining my site!

Cezar and Léia said...

This picture is so beautiful, clever capture dear Peter!
Here is not so cold, but I don't mind cold weather, I don't like these rainy days!!! :(
And wind...and rain again...and wind...
