December 1

First of December, and the traditionel calender candle is ready to count the days for us. I wrote a bit about this last  year : https://my2008blog.wordpress.com/2009/12/02/counting-the-days/
It is very cold these days, and the windows are decorated with ice pattern in the morning. Nicely done.

    Very nice to see you back, giiid 🙂 and with such delightful images. Contrasts of the season, warmth, cosyness and extreme cold. Ice patterns like sculptures. Both pictures are beautiful ! Thank you.

    Can you believe it’s December again already?
    The ice pattern is really beautiful! Stay warm!

    Oh my! The ice looks like seaweed under a very cold sea or like a volcanic eruption from a frozen planet! I’ve never seen Jack Frost’s work captured with that three-dimensional look. You got the candle wick inside the flame, too. Fire and ice both tamed by your lens – you are having a good week!

    That is just so gorgeous. Are those really ice crystals on the windowpane?

      Yes, it is ice. The different temperature between outside/inside, sometimes cause waterdrops on the window. If it is very cols outside, they will freeze. The windows in our house is old style, which means two seperate glass, and this photo is of the glass closest to outside.

        Ahh! I didn’t know that you have two glass-panes in your windows – we just have one! But then, we don’t have close-to-zero or sub-zero temperatures in Cape Town, so I guess we don’t need such double-glass. Now I have learned something new again. 🙂

          The very old houses had only one glass, next step was these dobble glass made as two seperate glass. The next level was a thermo glass, which is two glass in one piece, completely tight together, no air inside. Next level is energy thermo glass, which as indicated will isolate also. We are realy obsessed by how to isolate our houses in this country…
