Ice Age.........

By Brilane
........photograph, taken 850 million years ago, of a monster trapped in the ice of the frozen lake.

Yesterday, Tammy and myself got into our time machine and travelled back in time to the ice age. When we arrived it was sleeting very heavily and the ice on the lake had a covering of snow. The prehistoric monster was trapped in the ice and was bellowing for assistance. Tammy took no notice and was more interested in some nearby birds. I didn't venture onto the ice and didn't fancy getting near the monster, so we decided to continue on our walk, and then to return, safely, home.

Tech stuff:
Machine. Time warp, matter disintigrator/transporter, Windows XP.
AA battery powered.

1/30th (hand held)
ISO 800
Lens 124mm 135 equiv.

I hope that you like the picture, and thanks for looking in.

This is wonderful! And that's a new addition to the Common lake... I wonder if Mikbee knows Nessie has migrated?

Excellent picture and super humorous write-up. Wouldn't want to see him getting together with Mick's acquaintance, though I doubt they would be in any hurry!

It looks like this monster is frozen in time. Did Michael J. Fox lend you his DeLorean car so that you could travel back to the Future?! lol
