Chunks Of Ice On The Ground

It doesn’t snow in Panama.  Not even close.  We also don’t have hailstorms either.  This scene is a strange one I’ll admit.  This is the story.  My wife had filled several plastic bags with water and freezed them up for a kitchen project.  Somehow the project failed and she ended up with several chunks of ice on her hand.

Decision?  Deposit them under a shrub in our backyard to water the roots with cold water in the middle of a very dry season.  She told me about the chunks of ice on the ground, and thought they would be nice to capture for posterity.  Thus the shot of chunks of ice on the ground in a tropical country.

I used two cameras to take the shots to compare their performance.  I’m still learning how to use the new Fujifilm X-30.  Here we go.

All shots were taken using Macro Program Mode and edited with Pixlr photo editing software.  Good Day.

  1. Interesting that this is precisely the water many people water their potted orchids. My aunt puts two ice cubes on each of hers every week, and they thrive. What a fun connection.

  2. This is the first time my wife has done this. It happened by chance. I’m sure the shrub noticed the difference in the temperature of the water. Cold water in the midst of a very dry season.

    Every day we learn something new. Isn’t it?
