These ones were rising ground up... they came off the car that was parked here. I am surprised that they didn't shatter when the car was moved but stayed attached at ground level.

(Yes, that is the top of the red snow blower shoot you can barely see over the rise.)

These ones were so small but unusual in that they were more firmly frozen to the ground then the car. I have to laugh, Ardy...I was singing my own bowdlerized verse of "Swinging on a Star" when I was creating this: "and all the stalagmites are not in a cave...out in snow they can be very brave..." and I just got sillier as I went along! I have to admit a partiality for hanging icicles too...but there aren't any yet around here.

Glad you enjoyed it but didn't want to scare you; these are very small, Jana! I had to bend right down to the ground to take the photo.

All the stalagmites are not in caves. Prettier in pictures than in actuality. That's a LOT of snow. Thanks, Michelle.

Very beautiful, but when scary, thank you Michelle for showing :-)))

Thanks, Francine...had to go for the sky (picked it from there) and added a gradient for subtle lighting effects. (I really had to bend over, rather precariously, to try to get this photo from ground level...the neighbours must have wondered...lol!)

Good photo - like your framing too.

Hey, texasstar and fodus, I haven't seen this one before either so there you go...a learning experience for all of us!

They were really glistening in the sun but I didn't realize my shadow would block them so much when I was bent down taking the pictures. Of course, they're not there anymore. The rest of the driveway had to be shoveled!

fodus

Yup do.

Now that's just weird! Never would have thought it! Thanks, you learn something new every day with Jigidi.
