red-hot ice cube

It was so hot this week, that when I grilled at lunchtime, I didn't even need to light the charcoal. (sizzle)


This image of a "red-hot" ice cube was remarkably low-tech, and no color editing was necessary. One evening, I placed an ice cube on a black surface, and used a cheap, red laser to illuminate it. In case you're wondering, the camera was my wife's compact point & shoot.


Stay cool, Friends.

This picture proves that it's the photographer, not the camera, that's most important. This is a neat photo.

I'm not sure is I should say "That's a hot idea" or "Wow, that's cool!"

George, you always have a good word of encouragement.

Thank you kindly, Imac. (I still miss using a DSLR, though.)

Clever, Shammy. Very punny. ;-)

Fire and ice, Lime? I never thought of you as a Pat Benatar fan. Heh, heh.

wow that is cool,Craver!!!! Do you think it would feel hot or cold to the touch? ;)

EG Wow said...

What a clever idea, Craver! So, you did this with a point and shoot? That makes it even neater!

"Fire and ice". Hey Steve Camp had an Lp called 'Fire & Ice'.

Nice pic Crav.

BTW If you could pray for me bro. I have lost a good bit of my memory. The doctors are checking me out. Thanks brother. Look forward to seeing you in heaven my friend, and looking upon our Savior with a joy we always dreamed of and never knew.

Hey Craver, here's that Steve Camp song.

Craver: It has been really hot this week. This is such a cool result.

I'm glad you like it, Rachel Grace. It sure has the impression of extreme heat, doesn't it?

The point & shoot is not nearly the same as a DSLR, but it is inconceivable that I don't pick up a camera EG. I was at a wedding over the weekend, and asked the photographer if I could hold her Nikon for just a moment. I'm incurable!

Sandman, I've been thinking (and praying) about you a lot this weekend. Please keep me updated.

Very clever, Fishing Guy. Nicely phrased.
