Great Balls of Ice

OK, went a little off the tracks with the title, but oh well.  Trying to start a new thread to help move on to the next thing.  Don’t have a lot of stuff to write about tonight as I’m trying to get stuff ready for the trip this weekend.

We had a voucher to use on Southwest before the end of January or they’d expire so we are having a little spur of the moment travel to the left coast.  Low and behold San Francisco was one of th ebest bargain fairs and the car rental was kind of dirt cheap.  I guess January must be a slow time for traveling so good deals to be had.

The plan is to camp out (yes tent camping) near Point Reyes National Seashore for a few days, check out some redwoods, then heading up to Yosemite for a few days too.  Hopefully we’ll be able to get there with the snow they’ve had.  Then spend the last couple nights in San Francisco taking in the city.

I’ve been before, but Amy has not so she is excited.   I’m excited too so didn’t mean to sound like it was ho-hum.  Last time I didn’t do any of the exploring so this should be fun. Anyways, I hope to have lots of cool photos to post about when we get back.  Gotta put the 5d Mk II through its paces!!

Anyways, in preparation of the hopefully winter weather we’ll see in the mountains, I figured I’d share a piece of Missouri winter wonderland.  This is another shot from Johnson Shut-Ins.  This was a little ice formation next to a small waterfall.

The water was splashing up and the drops would freeze I guess to form this pretty cool pattern in the ice.  The blue color is a function of the white balance but this is the way it came out of the camera….I could have “fixed it” by adjusting the WB out, but I kind of liked it.  I hope you enjoy.
