The Kolden Report: Moody Blues. December 29, 2012

Hi, kids!
 
Well, I've been at the Kolden Report for nearly another year!  It's been a privilege and an honor to share this ride we call '"life" with you.  Thank you all for your support.  Keep those comments coming!
 
I am looking ahead and wondering how I might improve the Kolden Report?  Same as last year, I'm asking you what you like best in the reports?  How might I improve the reports?  What don't you like?  What do you want more of?  Less of? 
 
It's quite possible that you'll not hear from me again until next year so....Happy New Year!  I wish you ALL the very best 2013 has to offer. 
 
And now, my frosty walkabout.  Enjoy!
 
 
Cotton ball sky.
 

 
Frost fingers.
 

 
Back lit in blue.
 
 
No two crystals are alike!
 

 
Sky sentinels.
 

 
Back lit burr bunch.
 

 
Shadowland.
 

 
Sandbar snow pack.  (Elizabeth, you asked about the sandbar?  Well HERE it is!)
 

 
Spray of shadow.
 

 
And the river, she's a rising.
 

 
White and blue wonder.
 

 
Ravishing reflection.
 

 
The river is ONE chunky monkey.
 

 
Delight in white.
 

 
Look how long some of these crystals are!
 

 
River steam turns into geometric crystals.
 

 
Shoreline wanderer.
 

 
Silver steam.  (I REALLY love this one.)
 

 
Alien world.
 

 
Finely flocked.
 

 
The shape of things to come.
 

 
Fairly frosted!
 

 
Top knot.
 

 
Frosted puff.  (Again...no TWO are alike....amazing!)
 

Weed wades.
 

 
Blue bliss.
 

 
Swizzle stick?
 

 
Fabularity.  (Yes... I make up words when the ones we already have just won't quite do!)

 
And again, a bit closer. 
 

 
173 degrees of separation.  (  According to ice, a free panorama stitcher , this is 173.9 degrees horizontally.) 
 
 

 
Big.  Orange.  Ball.  (Love that it's orange when it crests the horizon and as it climbs, turns silver). 
 
 
Happy Trails, kids!
