is this

what it looks like
on the surface
of the moon?

(the confluence between the west river and the connecticut river
wearing a cratered cloak of ice)

Oh my gosh! It must be so. Superbly surreal yet really real.

Birdman said...

1 and 3 look like sky shots for sure. Ice makes for some interesting images.

Looks cold to me.

Doug Hickok said...

Ah, what a wonderful analogy! Fantastic black and white images to spark the imagination.

Cathy Hudspeth said...

Yes! Especially the first image, looks like another planet with a weird sky. Love it!

Sharon said...

Such a great analogy! These shots do look a bit bleak and barren.

Sharon Creech said...

Stunning images, brattcat - could be sky or lake or river or puddle . . . or moon.

Kate said...

Dreaming about summer doesn't make it happen during these cold, chilly months so we might as well enjoy the beauty wherever we find it. Good eye, brattcat!

2nd and 3rd maybe Brattcat, but the second instantly reminded me of some ancient fossil discovered in the middle of the desert somewhere...I think you and I both have very good imaginations yeh!

We have at times been in desert environments that look like a moonscape. I would not have thought of a river scene evoking the moon, but you have created the mood.

JM said...

Brilliant! Great trio, Brattcat.

Tanya said...

possibly....beautiful images anyway!

Rob Siemann said...

Wonderful!

Lowell said...

Probably not, but I think that's what Mars may have looked like many billions of years ago as they have found evidence of water there...or it is a beautiful artistic wintry shot taken in Vermont! :-)

Who knows?..Walking on the ice is as exotic as walking on the moon for me..:o)

Jack said...

Actually, no. I can say so with authority because I attended a lecture Saturday afternoon by a geology professor from the university I attended. He talked about current discoveries on Mars and the moon. He showed pictures, and they didn't look like this. (No visible water.)

Bob Crowe said...

Ummm. I don't think the moon has that glassy sheen. The texture may fit. We could call up Niel Armstrong and ask him.

Carraol said...

Beautiful forms, textures and light!

Clouds photos...

Anyway, the Earth is the most beautiful beauty in the world.
