Frosted Leaves

Sometimes it’s worth it to leave the warmth of a steaming kitchen, to pull on a pair of lined boots, to tramp out into the morning — all for a glimpse of a yard glazed in frost just before it melts away. But if you’re one of those that simply can’t be lured out of bed before the sun rises, there’s no better place to witness this phenomenon than from the comfort of your own desk.

Let there be light !!

"The festival of lights is one of the most popular festival across India. Although legends say it is a Hindu festival, this is one festival which is celebrated across all communities in India. Everyone lights up their home, sweets are distributed to friends and family. Fireworks and loads of warmth and laughter are the high-points of this festival."

Above photos are just a snapshot of the Festival of Light. You can discover many more photos from this year’s celebrations throughout the Flickrverse.

Venice flood

San Marco Hi Tide

Venetians cope with seasonal floodwater often, but heavy rains from this year severely raised water levels so much that tourists were literally swimming at Venice’s main attraction, St. Mark’s Square. Despite having to endure inundated hotel lobbies and submerged walkways, a few Flickr members found ways to eloquently capture the swamped Italian city — even take a video of two rowers swiftly boating through the rain-swollen canals.

Explore Venice in groups and view photos of Venice Carnival 2012.
