Hi all! Here’s something absolutely gorgeous that I think you all will appreciate:

This is a watercolor painting by artist Mishu Bogan, inspired by our beautiful, otherworldly Antarctic imagery. I don’t know about you, but I recognized the imagery where this came from! Mishu can be reached at http://www.mishubogan.com/, mishu@mishubogan.com or https://www.facebook.com/MishuBogan/

As an amateur researcher, I ask, why are there no seals amid areas of ice breaks? Seems easier to haul hundreds of pounds out where the ice is already broken.

OMG it reminds me of our tree :rofl:


Boy was that one a challenge to decorate; the back would have matched map image only I slimmed it down a bit (I had a lot of hacking and thinning to do. Serves me right, I deliberately chose it for it’s crooked misshapen look because I fancied a challenge at the time :crazy_face:

I’ve wondered that in the past though I “think” I’ve seen an odd one. But then I wonder, well, how high above the water is that edge? Is it just the angle of the image that’s making it look closer to the water’s surface than it actually is :thinking:

I dare say some of those cracks can be quite deep, too deep for a seal to haul up out of.

Ladies! High heels are NOT allowed on the ice!

@EmeraldEyes

Is that your current tree or a past tree?

The one I posted from Antarctica lost its ornaments (shhh—they were shiny and round and I couldn’t resist!). Looks like the garland cinched up till embedded along the branches. Ooooo-- just spotted one bulb.

Em, I noticed the boy’s pic behind the tree. Who is that darling who’s waiting to surprise Santa?

Oh to stay on topic…
I’ve heard of a Blue Moon, but a green sea?

Is this what they call (ice) calving?

Hmmm… a surfaced snow seal with text on his collar?

Laying at bottom of poly.

One of those square-hatted wigged Brits, forever trapped in ice as his profile (with long thick nose) looks out over the frigid sea…

I knew those seals were laughing at us! I just knew it. Now I have proof! They left a Snow Sign… See it? Let’s get those naughty seals for hiding from us! We’ll show them!!

Oh no— nodder down! Top right, sideways, how a nodder looks after hours of looking for no-shadow Weddell seals. Nodder just plum tuckered out. Hey, where does that idiom come from “plum tuckered out”? Gotta be a Brit thing?

Maybe if you turn it slightly - with the crooked part toward the corner - it will look straight as looking straight on and off a little to the left and right. That might even help to keep it from leaning too much to … oh never mind… you’ll probably lose half the decorations messing with it! :open_mouth: Looks good from my house! :wink::smiley: I love the blue lights! They look like bright, hot stars! :heart_eyes:


#14

In the 1st photo, the edge of the ice sheet is probably a few hundred feet tall - at least 200’. If you looked at the scale, then imagined the scale line being vertical, that would give you a rough estimate of just how tall it is.
As for the 2nd photo, you could probably sail a ship through that crack. The ice sheet is quite tall.

:rofl::rofl: I was just thinking… I wonder what a psychologist would think if he/she read some of our posts? Probably think a few of us belong in the “nut house!” :thinking::rofl:


#16

That’s a silly thing to be doing… :upside_down_face: … could get you into all sorts of trouble! :rofl:


#17

And talking to yourself can be dangerous also! My wife caught me talking to myself. A short time later she asked me why I had put something she was looking for on the shelf - out of her reach - and I replied, “I was just doing what I was told.” She looked at me with an odd expression so I continued, “I told myself it should go up there, so I was just doing what I was told.” She didn’t think that was funny. Humph! No sense of humor! :crazy_face:


#18

:rofl: I sometimes get the best answers that way… :upside_down_face:


#19

You can usually get at least one person to agree with you also! :wink:


#20

Which “one person”, though? What if a person has many persons? OoOoOoOoooo!

Which one should you listen to?
