stairs

I am having so much fun at Foto Fridays,
you really should play along as well!
This week's theme is stairs...
Since the definition of stairs is "a set of steps"...
I'm going to get creative again & say,

"You really should watch your steps. This ice is slippery!"


We had more ice than snow this past week and the sun finally came out yesterday to start to melt it. The sun glinting off the ice was truly magnificent! I used my polarizing filter to try and cut down on too much glare... still playing with that filter - I'm not sure if it was the right thing to do or not? (but the ones without the filter didn't look quite as crisp).
The leaf was frozen into this patch of ice (my daughter says it looks like a little dog, lol) so it too got included in my shot.

very creative--one does have to watch their step at this time of year. Kaye—the road goes ever ever on

Thanks for the "half" idea for the scavenger hunt with my diet coke photo. I was thinking about joining in this Sunday if I can figure out the rest of them!

I haven't tried using a polarized filter. This shot has inspired me to venture out a bit. Thanks!

Beautiful shot!
