Picture Winter Day 20

Today we were instructed to “visually translate the word frosty.”  Meghan wanted a Frosty from Wendy’s.  I didn’t think that would photograph all that well, and there really isn’t one very near by here.  Hubby thought I should mix up one of my famous frosty margaritas:
Electric blue margarita

Made with a splash of Blue Curacao – I guess this shot from my 365 project could actually fit the bill today.

This is the shot, however, I submitted to the gallery today:

This is a photo of ice covered snow lit by the setting sun.  I thought it had the kind of neat effect of being both warm and cool at the same time.  I got some of my inspiration for this shot from Becky Sue, who is also doing the “Picture Winter” class.  She did a very cool shot of her driveway at sunrise this morning.



  1. Oohh, that margarita looks delicious! I could use one of those right about now.
    The iced snow pic is gorgeous!

    • I do make a fabulous margarita, if I say so myself. I still think we should have a blogger meet-up sometime. I’ll bring the drinks, LOL!

  2. A Wendy’s Frosty is always good, I picked up the key tag that gets me a free junior Frosty through the end of the year (so are margaritas)!! 😉 But I like your other interpretation, too!! 🙂

    • I didn’t know there was a key tag for free Frosties! I just don’t get to Wendy’s all that often though.
      Thanks Holly.

  3. I liked what you did with the snow crust. For all the time I spend mushing through snow, I’ve never examined it just that way. I may have to go down to the beach and scrunch down close to see what it looks like. (If I can’t get up again, I will wish that I’d decided to investigate margaritas instead!)

    • You’ll need crunchy-topped snow to see stuff like this, Gerry – and the sun lower in the sky helps too. Margaritas may be the better choice the way temperatures have been feeling lately.

    • I’ll have to make you one sometime, Becky. Maybe this summer you could bring Stella to play with Daphne and Teddy, the kids can go swimming and we can sit on the deck and drink margaritas. Sound good?
      Thank you for the inspiration for my snow photo!

    • Thanks Robin. I have to try to bring a little warmth to this crazy winter we’re having.

  6. Ok, I really, really want one of those margaritas! Like the other frosty pic too, but you just can’t beat a good margarita.

    • I must toot my own horn here – I make a fantastic margarita! 😉

  7. I love both your and Becky Sue’s. They both say frosty to me.
