As I sit here with the temperature at 5 degrees and the snow blowing over the ice all I can think of is how cold it is. How about images illustrating "Cold"! Make us all shiver!

The challenge begins when posted, and will end on Saturday, Jan 20th, 2018 at Noon EST. The winner will be announced shortly thereafter.

CHALLENGE RULES:
1. Camera: Any DIGITAL CAMERA is allowed, (not just DSLR)
2. Time: Any on-topic photo taken at any time is eligible, although photos that have won other competitions should NOT be entered.
3. Size: See standard P.O.T.N. Image Posting Rules.
4. Post Processing: Do whatever you like and the host will decide if it works.
5. Posting: ONE PHOTO per photographer in each challenge.
6. Details: Show camera model & lens used. Post brief EXIF data including ISO, shutter speed and aperture used.
7. Commenting: Please, NO COMMENTING DURING CHALLENGE feel free to comment in this thread after a winner is declared.
8. Content: Keep it clean, and both Family and Work safe.
9. Have questions? PM me.
10. Have FUN!

* THE WINNER ALWAYS SETS THE THEME FOR THE NEXT CHALLENGE, POSTS IT AND JUDGES IT - BE PREPARED! A new challenge should be posted ASAP after you have been declared the winner.

Well this was a really hard one. Every image and I really mean every image was great.

Teekay's Winter Wreck is a fantastic and chilly capture with the boat's splash of color in the ice.
Tom Reichner's Spring Breakup is a great wildlife capture amid the floating ice. I usually cannot capture ducks in the wild as I never seem to have the right lens.
Old Crow's leaves in ice captures the color of late fall with the frozen winter ice.
Alveric's image left me wondering. It is very artistic and abstract. It certainly conveys cold - and maybe a lot of other thoughts.
Airfrogusmc's Monochrome is also art. The choice of B&W gives it the feeling of a first snowfall of the season on a grey day.
Ltdave's image is unique giving an obscured view of a very cold day. It is a view that would make me shiver and not want to go out and shovel the stuff.
darkslinger's image of snow on the branches is iconic of winter and cold - B&W makes it more wintery

All are great but the winner is Lt Dave giving me the best interpretation of "cold" from a warm place
Old Crow is a close second and splitting hairs, teekay is 3rd.

Take it away Ltdave.

"Your" and "you're" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one.
"They're", "their", and "there" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one.
"Fare" and "fair" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one. The proper expression is "moot point", NOT "mute point".

Totally agree with your choice of Ltdave for the winner, Paul, and OldCrow for #2 - and thanks for taking the time to comment on all the entries. Obviously no shortage of "cold" in most areas right now, so it was a good subject.:-)
