Header Competition # 13

The header theme this week by Mac from England is "ICE". Mac,TomDarla and I have a little contest to show a new theme header each week. Go to the other sites to see their interpretation of this weeks theme.


I have had a lot of ice hanging from my roof line. It does cause some problems.

It can build up as all the snow on the roof melts.



The little stream down the road is open but has ice on the banks.

The photo of the "Mallards On Ice" I liked best became my favorite and became my header.

Nice to see the ducks making out OK.... I recall watching them land on ice a few years back. I could not help but laugh at how they managed it, even though some tippled over they all shook themselves and carried on as normal...
Great looking header and fantastic icicles.

Glad the mallards can stand the ice. Great header. Looks like your icicles could be dangerous.

Hope you took some breadcrumbs to give them, as they look quite hungry.

Jo Castillo said...

The different headers are fun to see. I like yours for the ducks. Great photos of the icicles, too

Oohhh it must be soo cold at your house to have all those stalactites hanging from the roof.
Nice Mallards don't seem to mind the ice in the water.

Makes me want to grab an icicle and crunch away!
I don't know what keeps those ducks from freezing in that cold water!

Ever since I was a little kid, I liked icicles; they're just ducky!

Your header is beautiful. I wonder how the mallards bear the coldness. Whew! it must be freezing cold.

Just be careful with those ice cycles, they can be dangerous when falling. We have them too. Anna :)

Great shot of the mallards Tom. I had to look closely as I thought their little feet were frozen into the lake.
