Wow. I gotta say that the first picture (as well as the rest of the set) of the "Surface Tension" set was one of the few pictures I've seen in a good while that made me just have a full mental stop for a few moments. Good stuff to look at.

Of course, these would melt and freeze again every year. And I'm sure global warming denialists would argue that. But man, it's just amazing that there are people out there who still deny global warming.

On the other hand, dosn't seem like everyone who is supposedly good on global warming isn't actually presenting a plan that would actually do any good? They all want to reduce CO2 output by like 10% or something. It's just ridiculous, I suppose anything is better then nothing, but most people in governments around the world don't seem to be taking it very seriously, even the ones who are supposedly "on the right side"

When I have kids, they better like cold, because we are going on a vacation to Norway, and renting a sailboat. Oh yes.

Very cool pics.

Why does every photography site use flash? (at least this one loaded quickly).

I think they all use flash because photos that wonderful (lovely lovely post!) just have to be sullied somehow, even though they can't be. It's the way of the world.
