Bowling Green, OH, December 2008 [Click to enlarge]
For many of us, it's been a fairly brutal season. In the Great White North, we've had more snow, ice and cold than most folks can tolerate. Drill a hole through the planet and it's a completely different story: the southern hemisphere's been baking, often tragically. Welcome to the age of global warming. Except if you're Sarah Palin.
Heat was the last thing on my mind, however, as we tucked in for the night on our grand family vacation adventure. We had stopped in this delightful university burg - and hometown of figure skating legend Scott Hamilton - a few hours earlier when the weather became too dangerous, and hoped that the morning would bring a little meteorological relief. Um, not so much. We woke up to a world coated in ice - this is the rear wing of our van - and it got worse from there.
It was rather difficult to imagine our friends in Australia sweating out triple-digit heat at at very moment. We would have gladly averaged out both extremes for our collective benefit. But since this was - and presumably is and always be - impossible, we'll simply have to share wintry-themed pictures for the next week. You game?
Your turn: Please post a winter-themed photo to your blog, Facebook page, Flickr account, or anywhere else online, then share the link in a comment below. Here's how Thematic Photographic works:
- Every Wednesday evening, at precisely 7 o'clock Eastern, I post a new Thematic Photographic entry.
- Each entry has a unique theme. This week's is...winter.
- You post a similarly themed image over on your blog.
- You paste a link to your entry in a comment here.
- If you've already posted something that fits (on a blog, Facebook, MySpace, wherever) simply post the link to the existing entry. Old or new, all photos are welcome.
- You may post as many photos or links as you wish. For the next week, I'll be supporting this theme with a related picture/posting each day. I encourage you to do the same. This is all about sharing, so feel free to share to your heart's content!
- Please share this link with friends, too, and encourage them to join in. The more, the merrier.
- And please accept my thanks for your enthusiasm. Your participation has made TP a true highlight for me each and every week.
