Fishing? wow, hope they do get some...cool shot James.

RuneE said...

Fishing from the deep freezer :-)

Dina said...

You really have to be crazy about fishing to do that.

Enjoy the California weather while you can, James.

Regina said...

Wow amazing winter.
Great pic!

awarewriter said...

A picture of dedication. Maybe the fish taste better when caught in the winter. One thing is sure -- the fish won't spoil lying on the bank in the hot sunshine.

I always thought of fishing as a laid back half asleep in the sun sort of thing. Yep, you have to be dedicated to fish in the winter.

Malyss said...

I would not feel safe on that ice, it does not seem to be very solid..but at least, they are sure to get FRESH fish!^_^
Great contrast with your vacations!

bigadmin said...

I am craving a cup of tea now. That is a perfect weather to sit home staring at the fire

kaye said...

I could never see the fun in ice fishing--but I like your picture

Icy BC said...

I always admire ice fishermen for staying out in the cold..That's an awesome picture!

Thom said...

Wonderful picture but it sure does look cold. Hope you having a great vacation :)

The Good Life in Virginia said...

interesting capture james. almost looks like the fishing is an after thought.
please tell me you are having fab food and that your trip (sans the rain) has been wodnerful.

Gerald (Hyde DP) said...

you have to be really sure of the ice to venture thereon - mine is an icy reflection this week too.

Rebecca said...

Brrrr...are they fishing? Hope you aren't rained out is CA. Not sure if I'll come up with a photo this week...I'm in the photography doldrums.

storyteller said...

Wonderful wintry shot ;-)
Guess you're changing snow for RAIN, eh? We've got wild wet windy weather her in California.
Hugs and blessings,

Quilt Works said...

I really like this photo! It would be a nice photo even without the reflection, but reflection of the men really adds the special dimention that makes the photo memorable! Well done!

Evelyn Howard said...

A nice photo - hope they catch something.

MOO said...

What a cold winter pastime...brrrrrrr!

Oh James that looks like dangerous ice! Great shot though! :)

cieldequimper said...

Hi James, hope you're having a good time in California and that you'll be fishing soon! ;-)

Carolyn Ford said...

It's raining as I write this...hope you are enjoying so. Cal! And, I agree with those who think fishing in the ice is second to sitting beside a nice fireplace! But, you captured an amazing scene so beautifully!

Becky and Gary said...

This is really a neat reflection, but I hope these guys know about the open water near by.
Hope you are staying dry in California too.
Becky

Diane AZ said...

Wow, even their reflections look frozen. Enjoy your time in California!

Autumn Belle @ KDP said...

Fishing will be fun. At least there is some life in the deep of winter. Happy Weekend Reflections to everyone. My post today is Venice in Malaysia.

Marka said...

They look oh so excited.

Thérèse said...

I don't think you are going to find any change in the amount of water you are going to see :) depending though where you are heading to...

Sara Chapman said...

I like this one very much. I've done water also, although mine is a bit subtle. You can see it here:

Gattina said...

Fishing for frozen fish ? I bed it's nicer in California for the moment !

Quilldancer said...

Brrrr ... it's beautiful, but I am getting cold just looking at it.

Gena D said...

Rosidah Abidin said...

Beautiful reflection! Brrr... I can feel the cold. Have a blessed week. TY for another wonderful Weekend Reflections.

Greyscale Territory said...

Those guys almost look as though they are standing on such fragile ice that it almost seems close to water! Brave souls! Great photo!

Cindy said...

Let's hope they catch something other than a cold!

Martha in PA said...

Great capture.

I really hasn't been too terribly cold since you've been gone.

Missing you and Vicki!

desertsandbeyond said...

Er, uh, California is having cold weather right now, but not as cold as Pennsylvania! Hubby is from Meadville, up by Erie. He still talks about how cold it got there in the winters!

mbkatc230 said...

Now that looks cold! These guys must really love to fish. Great shot James. Hoping you're having fun! Kathy

Cezar and Léia said...

Where are they stepping on? Thin ice? Scary to me... But very nice shot! :)
God bless you!
Cezar

Melli said...

That shot scares the Dickens out of me! That ice doesn't LOOK thick enough to be standing on! I'm sure it IS... but it doesn't look it.

ruma2008 said...

They are brave.

Ice seems to be broken.
I feel scared.

Jientje said...

I hope you're having fun in sunny California James! This looks awfully cold!!

hip chick said...

Oh my...they look awful close to open water!

Anna said...

Cool shot!
Anna :)

Lily Hydrangea said...

Is this ice fishing? whatever the case may be, they are two very dedicated fishermen!
& this scene is a lovely weekend reflection James!

Titania said...

Brrrr...cold feet, very "cool" reflection!

Susan at Stony River said...

That's a beautiful photo James, but IMHO, NO fish tastes that good. I'd be inside with the cocoa!!

moorebloglife said...

Sweet! And snow is not easy to expose so nicely, well done!

Serendipity said...

Lovely shot, I really like the composition.

Halcyon said...

Nice reflection! I prefer the warmer climes lke So Cal though!!

Bibi said...

Treading on thin ice...? Lovely photo though!!
