Following Alun's suggestion, how about people post ice photos from around the navigation.

A few from Naas-Sallins -


Out walking the canal bank



Lock 2 on Naas branch line - ice just starting to form



Then a week later it got really cold - an icebound 34B

Sigh. ... ok, it's just a detail. But nobody spots the slight difference? Are you all snow blind and freezing? Or is it a case of steamy glasses? Before driving for Christmas shopping to NI you should clean them and the car windows too.

In case you cannot find your glasses I will give you a zoom version of both pics. Please use a marker (permanent) to circle the difference in the second photo on your screen, write the number of animals you can see on the second pic beside the circle, take a photo of your screen and post it here.

Conor, I know that you said 'No talk, just photos' ....but I just have to say I love your selection of shots. Excellent quality images: nicely focused, sharp, and lovely composition. You have a good eye and steady hands. And a good camera helps! Did you shoot them with a Nikon D60?

Regards,

Paul,

I should have credited the Quivvy Marina photo to Nigel Allen of Irish Spars. He was out working in the very cold weather, checking covers etc. Fair play.

Hi al,
a couple from last Saturday of a rather chilly 'Castle Harbour'.




Re: Watery Winter Wonderland photos

Joe, looks like Castle Harbour was, and presumably still is, solidly iced as well as cold!

Yes Paul, Castle Harbour is 'ice-breaker' land at present as the footprints below show. The shot of the castle was taken on October BH weekend (25th Oct.), we got an early warning !!!

Michael Savage has taken some winter wonderland photos last week on Lough Neagh.
He told me that he was out at Rams Island yesterday breaking ice all the way although not too thick yet.
