Ghiaccio – Ice in Marta

 

There may not be much snow left around the shores of the Lago di Bolsena in Marta, but just look at these photos of the ice taken in town this morning!

They look so much more impressive individually so if you are interested in viewing the rest of the ice photos in a larger format they can be found on Flickr.com in My Album Ghiaccio - Ice in Marta

  3. We have not been out except me to feed the birds and go to the post box. Our neighbour has offered to do some shopping for us as he has a friend picking him up in a 4x 4 this p.m. No gritted roads in the country!

    The ice looks beautiful there, but of course we have no water around here for me to see. Only the birdbath which is freezing over faster than I can unfreeze it!

    Lovely photos. Diane

  8. Lindy... nature never fails to astonish me: look at the incredible beauty of those icicles! Just fantastic! The ice will melt very quickly, don't worry, Lindy... Spring is just round the corner, where you are...

    Keep warm and dry...

  12. The photos are very good. Your winter is a lot worse than ours so far. It has been unseasonably warm here in central Kentucky. We love the warmer weather but it is strange.

  19. do you know I don't ever associate snow with Italy - I always think of it as a hot country - except maybe snow in the mountains. Your post is a revelation!
