McFrost's recent activity

  • Submitted a challenge entry Solstice Lake Ice
    Smooth ice formed on the Buffalo Bill Reservoir, about 8 miles west of Cody, Wyoming, USA on the day before the winter solstice 2005.  This was unusual because local winds normally cause a rough surface to form, such as the ice in the lower left corner.  This ice acted like a mirror, providing a nice reflection for the lenticular clouds above the horizon.

  • Submitted a challenge entry Horse Head Eclipse
    Just before dawn on June 4th, 2012, the partially eclipsed Moon was about to set.  I had planned this shot weeks in advance, computing the time and angles of the image.  The location is about 20 miles southwest of Cody, Wyoming, USA, along the South fork of the Shoshone River.  The large rock pinnacle in the foreground is called Castle Rock, a formation of volcanic breccia.  The mountains below the Moon are part of the Absaroka Range in the Rocky Mountains.  Just below the right edge of the Moon is a large snow bank shaped like a horse's head.  This snow bank forms every year as the spring thaw melts the snow pack.  Local folklore says that when the Horse's throat is "slit" or it's "reins" are cut, then  the high water runoff in area streams and rivers is over for the season.
