Broken


Photo Theme. Join the blogroll. Visit participants.

This is a picture of BROKEN ice on the surface of Lake Ontario. I braved some pretty frigid temperatures to grab that shot! Winter's really come back with a vengance. Luckily, the groundhogs had some good news about spring last week.

I've been so busy, I didn't get a chance to play last week, so I'm adding a very late entry for GROSS:
Check out where this bus is going to at 20:50. I've always thought that that was a pretty gross name for a train station!

Happy Photohunting Folks!

Great picture for broken and it makes me cold just looking at it so I can imagine how cold you were getting it!

Hi Angelo

MysteriousLady said...

Wow that's some big pieces of ice! I hear it's VERY cold up their, and I saw lots of snow in your future on CNN today!

Stay warm! Happy Saturday! Great photo!

Gattina said...

He, he the bus stations name is really funny !
Broken ice, what a good idea ! I had quite my difficulties to find something broken. But then I thought about the ruins in Turkey I had seen, and there of course a lot of things are broken !

Pamela said...

The broken ice on Lake Ontario is just incredible! Looks like you got pretty close too! :)

Funny one for gross...Old cummer! lol

Puss-in-Boots said...

Oh good I can leave a comment for you. Blogger isn't letting me leave comments where I have to put in word verification, because it's not bringing the actual verification up!

Anyway, Angelo, it was very brave and noble of you to risk life and limb to bring us the photo of broken ice. Well done, thou brave and faithful servant...lol!

FRIDAY'S CHILD said...

Hey Angelo are you using a professional camera? I just love the shots! I don't capture magnifique shots like this :( ! Or maybe I should take photography class?!

By the way, I am curious...did you every find out why they named it Old Cummer?

Sarah said...

What a great photo, well worth braving the cold!

Daisy said...

Your picture of the ice is one of my favorite photos so far today! Glad you didn't fall in!

TorAa said...

Two great entries here. Gross icebroken affair. LoL.

=^.^=

srp said...

That looks cold enough to freeze your eye to the camera or a tongue to a flagpole. Did you have to get out there in a boat? That would be a bit scary, what if one of those jagged pieces of ice rammed a hole in the wooden boat? OK, I am shivering and my nose just went icy! If only we had a fireplace.

Incog & Nito said...

Great photo. Oh it must be cold! Happy weekend.

Miss Pink said...

I hope nobody falls through.

Rose said...

Patti: Cool Patti, so you must appreciate how cold it gets!

Perfect picks for The Hunt!
