Day 9 Theme #54 Cold

Cold Fish, originally uploaded by needlepointernc.

Our goldfish are COLD today with the temps falling below 30 degrees F at night these days. But they will survive another cold winter. The water from the fountain is frozen around the netting that we put on the pond to keep out the oak leaves.

I used Lightroom to make the ice bluer.

Love the patterns in your photo…very interesting to study. We have to bring our koi/goldfish into the basement every November as our pond freezes solid. When they get warmed up they tend to jump out of the big tank so we have to put a screen on it. Last year one leaped out and the cat dragged it upstairs as a prize!

The water on the netting is very cool as is the combo of icy blue and the warm red and gold.

I love the abstract nature of this shot….great colors and super details!

Our koi always live every year…we couldn’t kill them if we wanted to lol

Ditto what was said above, in that it is a colorful, yet cold, abstract image. It works on many levels and many themes.

They say goldfish are hardy – this image proves it beyond doubt!

We don’t feed them all winter. They usually sit at the bottom of the pond. If it warms up during the day, they may swim around a little.

Top Image Ruth Ellen, but I have to ask. Does freezing them in Winter and thawing in Spring prolong their life any??

Great ice pic and the colors intertwined make it better.

Very abstract looking cold image. The color sparkles.

Poor fish. I really like the frozen water on the netting when you look at this full-size.
