Freezing Rain






























In the last few days, the south of the country has witnessed a rarer weather phenomenon known as freezing rain. Freezing rain appears when temperature is below freezing, according to Realitatea.net. The raindrops become supercooled while passing through a sub-freezing layer of air, many hundred meters, just above the surface, and then freeze upon impact with any object they encounter.

In ultimele zile sudul ţării a fost martorul unui fenomen meteo mai rar, cunoscut de specialişti drept "freezing rain", sau altfel spus, ploaie îngheţată. Ploaia îngheţată apare atunci când temperatura se află sub pragul de îngheţ, informeaza Realitatea.net. Picăturile de ploaie se suprarăcesc în timp ce trec printr-un strat de aer cu temperaturi sub 0 grade, la câţiva metri de pământ, iar apoi îngheaţă la impactul cu orice obiect întâlnit.

remember how it used to be
when the sun would fill up the sky
remember how we used to feel
those days would never end
those days would never end

remember how it used to be
when the stars would fill the sky
remember how we used to dream
those nights would never end
those nights would never end

it was the sweetness of your skin
it was the hope of all we might have been
that fills me with the hope to wish
impossible things

but now the sun shines cold
and all the sky is grey
the stars are dimmed by clouds and tears
and all I wish
is gone away
all I wish
is gone away

Impresionant fenomemul, foarte sugestiv reprezentat. Abia din pozele tale am înţeles cât de extraordinar a fost... bravo...

Amazing photography! Your work is truly stunning and very inspirational. Thank you, for sharing your exquisite collection.

Am zis ca nu-mi plac postarile alea monosilabice sau onomatopeice dar tu obligi la asta! Extraordinar! Ai fost pe faza si ai realizat ceva grozav! Imi plac toate dar in special bobocul de trandafir, fructele de maces, tagetele galbene si fructele acelea galbene (de sub cele negre, de iedera canadiana, presupun) care par niste chihlimbare.

Awesom photos, you're an artist Wind!
Freezing rain is beautiful if you don't have to drive of course:)
Have a great weekend!

Clint said...

Thank you, Wind. Another tour-de-force! I love your shots. I love it after an ice storm---how the sun shines on the frozen trees and makes the landscape appear magical.

DUTA said...

Kudos to you for the stunning photography displaying the rare phenomenon of rain freezing!
The lyrics accompanying it all, are lovely.

This is a good time to find really abstract items. In Nature Cebter Magazine they have a similar experiment you can do with water in your home. They are an online publication.

Picturit said...

Fantastic images well spotted, so abstract can't pick a favourite they are all good.

arcadia said...

Pana sa vad minunatele si exresivele tale poze, n-am inteles de ce nu decolau avioanele de pe Otopeni :O

Alberto Oliver said...

And Nature decided to transform such beautiful flowers and plants, into cristal jewells, for the delight of those who know how to look the life. And a luck you were close with your camera, in order to catch such celestial jewellry and show us that every single day has a new surprise.
May you have a warm weekend, despite the cold there outside.
=)
Regards and all the best !!

I live in a region where freezing rain is not unusual. I have walked in it and driven in it, and have seen the world glistening from it in sunlight the morning after it, but I never have seen such lovely and fantastic photographs of it before this moment.

You are more than a photographer, Wind. You truly are an artist.

Luzia said...

Wow, you don´t like the winter? You have catch the best of it in a perfect cool way in your images!!! I wish you a nice week full of inspirations. Hugs from Luzia.

Călin H said...

tare mi-au pklăcut fotografiile tale; au făcut ca ale mele să pară ceea ce sunt: niste încercări timide.
Voi da vina pe aparatul de fotografiat, dar stim amândoi că e vorba de altceva. Felicitări!
