These look like serious danger! Beautiful though.

Jacob said...

That does appear menacing...and it truly is. I've heard of people who were severely damaged by falling icicles.

Thus my Monday morning advice: wear a helmet out-of-doors.

That way you'll probably survive the week which I hope is a good one!

Oh my, those are scary looking icicles.

Scary beauty in those icicles--and great jabberwock quote to match.

Sunny said...

It sure has been a winter for icicles!
Perfect quote.

Oh Wow! Just read Jabberwocky this morning @ 8AM. Same wavelength or what... but I think we knew that.

Ice is something I have not around here..So, what a strange thing to see, especially under this shape! yes, a real monster!

Your snow pictures last week were stunning!

Giorgio said...

Here the snow already melted and it feels like spring... guess it can't last too long!

Doug Hickok said...

This one is very cool. The sharp diagonals of ice juxtaposed with the verticals makes for a striking image!

Bob Crowe said...

Me. I'm looking out for the frumious Bandersnatch.

Very creative match of image and title.

Mysterious shapes and fascinating shades of grey...

Irina said...

I have recently read that the more dirty the water and air the more unpredictable shapes and sizes the icicles have. Glad that icicles in Vermont are so straight and correct.
As for the vintage shop I will be so glad to take you there, just say the date. The best time is May-June.

That is an awesome photo. Very menacing.

Visiting from "Split in Two" mostly because you entitled your blog "Battleboro" and I happen to live in the Mt. Washington Valley of NH.
