Funny bridge

The Baker River is over to the left of this capture. The bridge was built by one of river front property owners. I really liked the contours of the railings,bridge path, and the snow leading to the bridge. It is apparent to me that no one has used this bridge since it started snowing months ago. The bridge connects the property owner to a town owned water hole with several small waterfalls. An excellent place to cool off in the summer.

It was a cold morning here in the White Mountains. I got up early to take my dog out for a walk and when I went past my car I saw these designs in the frost. Quickly, I started shooting because before long the sunshine would erase these wonderful designs that nature had made.

Late in the day today I heard a woodpecker, so with camera in hand I followed the sound. Well two things happened; one I need snow shoes and two I needed to not fall

The this woodpecker is called a Flicker and is common for this area.

In the town that I live in, there is a place called by the locals "the Climbing Rocks", which most locals have not even been to the Rocks. The Climbing Rocks use to be a well hidden secret amongst the rock and ice climbing groups. However, that has changed it has become internationally known for passionate climbers.
Recently, I have decided to do a series of pictures of the Climbing Rocks for the local coffee shop and antique store, "The Common Cafe and Antiques". This coffee shop is about a mile and a half down the road from the Climbing Rocks which a lot of hikers and climbers will stop at to warm up in the winter.

So, during a warm snap (35F) I went to the Climbing Rocks so that I could get as close as I could to the icy cliffs. I climbed up the hill right below these icy cliffs which was pretty tricky. Actually treacherous with out spike clamp ons. The snow was slick, and the hill just steep enough to make sliding a fact not just a possiblility. It took a while but I finally grappled my way up to the ledge below the ice climbers. I was not wearing a helmet (I am bad) and every time the climbers used their picks the ice came raining down on my head, ouch.

In this capture, I found what I think looks like a woman's face on the rocks. Much to my surprise!!
