What in the world is this…? What killed him and why do the bones look like that covered in ice? Was he here for a drink by the river and caught in a rapid freeze like some woolly mammoth?

    This is a fantastic photo. Seeing the whole thing was great and very revealing. The way the icicles formed is so perfect. I just could not stop clicking on it.

    Freaky! at first I thought its a dog or some animal frozen in the ice. I was glad to see it was just a log!

    My guess was a rock. Was this a natural ice sculpture, or did you do this while you were waiting for your porridge to cool?

  4. I wood venture a guess but I’m going to have to log out now…….

  5. My guess it is a trunk, an old one!

    Meu palpite é que é um tronco, um velho tronco.

    Amazing photo!
    Incrível foto!

    Have a nice weekend!
    Tenha um belo final de semana.

    Ahhh! You’ve discovered the elusive Giant Snow Poodle that archaeologists and biologists have been tracking for decades! Be sure to write a paper about it and submit a grant proposal; I think you’re on your way to a great new career…

    Beautiful shot!

    I thought it was a rock!

  8. The frozen front of a decorated wooden boat? A garden ornament? A film prop? God, I’m really that boring, aren’t I

    very cool photo. At first glance it looks like a frozen aligator.

    Walter, you have a very sharp eye. I especially liked Katrina’s Giant Snow Poodle suggestion – that’s exactly what it struck me as.

    I miss my Nikon 990, and I’d really like some snow here please.
