THE SILVER THAW



I can lose hours browsing through the National Geographic photo archives and this one caught my eye. It was taken in Newfoundland by Sam Abell who is one of my favourite photographers.

The plant stems have an icy glaze on them which is caused by freezing rain. The Newfoundlanders call this the silver thaw.

Sam Abell has taken some terrific Australian photos but I like his miniature nature ones the best.

The same way Crystal does after 6 cans over the limit.
