This is pretty cool. I put a camera on a tripod out at the lake last week and set it up to take a picture every 30 minutes to record the melting ice. Then I deleted all the night scenes and created a time lapse movie in Picasa. Now it's here on my blog for all to view. That's just cool.
I did this sketch on December 15th. I remember it was cold and I was seeing the ice beginning to form on the lake. I was sitting on a bench in front of the tree that is to the far left in the video. It's been a long winter. I'm glad the ice is finally gone.
