photoblog image Scales tarn

Scales tarn

                        Below sharp edge, on Blencathra.Cumbria. U.K. Frozen solid this day, though I wouldn't have risked walking to the middle as these guys did just for a photo....

Darn!

Would have been an even better pic if those blokes had fallen through, and were drowning not waving.
Frank L Croston.: Then I wouldn't have known what do do! Zoom in, or go wide, what would sell!? smile
What an amazing photo... and place!! I love the patterns on the frozen water... and the guys give much needed scale! Can we go there??? smile
Frank L Croston.: Thanks, Elizabeth, the patterns were good, caused by the wind I think, same place as the last three...smile

A terrific image Frank. Nice to see the people in the shot but I wouldn't have risked it on that ice!
Frank L Croston.: Thank you, Chris, I ventured a few feet out, but no further....

It looks like molten metal, Frank
Frank L Croston.: Just the opposite in temperature though, Elisabeth! smile
Darn that is some tarn! Love the snow/wind patterns.
Frank L Croston.: It's a great place, Mary. They did add to the spectacle.

The patterns on the water are deceiving. It looks as if the right hand side is higher than the left.
Frank L Croston.: It does Louis, strange patterns, due to the wind I think, on the water.

That is amazing. As Louis has commented there is almost an optical illusion with the water, it looks as if it is pouring in from the top
Frank L Croston.: It was quite spectacular, yesterdays pic' was just off to the right, thanks, Anne.
nor would i, Frank.
i think a wider view works better in this instance to show off the whole place.
Way to cold for me.
Well worth the climb, what an unusual effect, what is the black line across the LHS of the lake ?
That is quite a sight Frank.
Took me an age to locate them! Very odd optical illusion - it looks as though the ice is on a downhill slope, rather than on a flat tarn!
An amazing sight... I wonder how deep it is...
this is a cool image Frank... the reflections from the side of the hill and the patterns on the surface of the ice gives the impression that it's the bottom of a crater....petersmile
This has been a terrific set of images from Blencathra, we saw it, but didn't go up it, during our Lake District holiday the other year.
