Pez I was going to ask about this in the other thread but my mind was occupied with something complicated...that is truly bizarre and requires a scientific explanation. There must be some way to make money from this...discovery? i mean how many people have seen this effect? I think it looked like a very high shutter speed to my mind at first. How much elapsed time between each photo?

No shutter tricks, no photo tricks, this is just frozen ice! The different shots are different mounds of the oil absorbing gravel. I couldn't figure it out and it was blowing my mind. I didn't even notice the gravel stuck at the end of the ice arcs until after the photo was taken. Maybe I'll try to reproduce this with my refridgerator or something.

Put it on a sheet of ice in the freezer - I'm guessing the ground was frozen?

Pez's ice shot is really cool.  It looks like a splash that froze in a split second.  I'm no meteorologist, but jqp's latest looks like it may be the beginnings of a mammatus cloud?

From my front porch last Thursday morning at about 07:00. Not much light but what looks like noise is mostly snow. 4 days earlier is was 81F/27C and stunningly beautiful. Most of the city just had rain but we managed the white stuff. HTC EVO.

Jerry- That rock rocks ;)

4 Leaf clovers aren't soooo uncommon. I found one the day after my fiance proposed at Mt Rainier:



The mountain peeked (peaked?) out for us too- also uncommon!



First pic was mobile phone; second was camera for the sake of disclosure

Wow, not a single post here so far this year?  :scratch: 

Okay, just to end and start years in order, here is a hint at how New Year's Eve went:



Tonight, taken down the block from my house. If you look closely, just over the top of the lights, there are mountains. Those are the Channel Islands. (Yep; of Channel Islands Audio fame :lol:)  That thing in the foreground is an irrigation pipe for a farmer's field. The dark on the ground beyond it is a strawberry field.



Have fun,

Jerry
