Mac: I do love them all, you certainly have a chance for retention. I have to see the others.

Darla said...

Goodness gracious!! This is great!!! Love what you are grateful for!!!

Gail's Man said...

Great selection of pictures again. I'll be visiting the others shortly.

Becca's Dirt said...

Awesome is the best word. Stunning photos.

leavesnbloom said...

great thought went into this! I've plenty of ice on my Scottish gardening blog - but not in my header - I'm grateful for all my senses ie sight, hearing, taste, smell, touch etc.

Your header challenges are really doing my head in *lol* - so many fantastic photos to look at. I really like your pics, but Darla offered something extra, and to say the least, something unlikely. Because of this, I just can't wait to see what you will come up with next time.

I think this is a hard week to decide. Everyone's ice pictures are amazing. I've narrowed it down to four people, LOL!

Wowsey-Dowesy. Can't pick a favorite. I give them all a five ice-cycle up rating.

Betsy from Tennessee said...

Wooooo---I'd hate to choose a winner this week, Mac... They are all great pictures. Maybe each of you should WIN---a New Year's GIFT to all.

Can I call a tie between you and Darla?? Very nice, but very different representations of ice. I can't decide, what shall I do?

Craver Vii said...

I like the ice patterns, and especially the frosty stalagmites from the bucket.

Teacher's Pet said...

Imac...I vote for your "I'm grateful for".....
How wonderfully sweet is that!
You and your wife sound like a match made in heaven to me.
Of course, you don't take a photograph that I don't like...ever.
Just look at these leaves me shivering....a glimmering shiver.
Beautiful, Imac...as always!!!

Linda Higgins said...

very very cool! LOL love the ice shots! Amazing how something so simple can become so beautiful!

solange said...

Your pictures are just fantastic!

Lew said...

Nice shot of the sheet of ice! And I like what you did with PhotoShop.

katney said...

I've had some lovely ice lately, but I think you've been by to see it.

Misty Dawn said...
