Frozen Lace

Frozen Lace

Frozen Lace

Lacy ice formations along the stream, fleeting and ephemeral, are abstract works of art.

    I see a Rorschach of the north. Or, the opening of a science fiction story. Or, a haiku in white. At first I saw the white on dark, but as I look closer, I think I prefer the white on white. Mysterious and inviting, for a person such as me.

    exquisite and fascinating!

  3. Max is whining at me to throw his toy for him, but I have to say first that this is really COOL! You should do a series of them. Love it, Eliza, and now I have to go before he has a conniption. Not that he’s spoiled…..

    • Eliza Waters says:

      Thanks, Barbara. I could do a series, I have plenty of ice photos. It is a challenge choosing which to publish however!
      Max isn’t spoiled, he just wants his ‘quality time!’ 😉

    Last night at 8 pm the temperature here was still 86 deg Fah. This morning (8.19 am) it’s 80 deg Fah and it will get hotter and humid, so your icy lace was most appreciated

    They sure are! Nice capture:-) but warm weather is coming your way soon:-) A melt is possible in a few days- I have a biking get together with a friend this weekend-yep, we bike in the winter when in is in the 40’s!
    I started my par-cel yesterday:-) It is slow to germinate:-)

    • Eliza Waters says:

      I would so enjoy a thaw! Our roads are impossible for biking, too many hills and tight corners, but there is a nice bike trail in the valley along an old rail track. It is busy all year round.
      I guess I better start my par-cel, too. 😉

    My comments are a bit late this spring-I am busy with the little plants- for you know—spring is around the corner!

  10. Isn’t ice interesting! Great image!

  11. Sharon K. says:

    What a great image, Eliza. I love the contrast of those browns next to the icy whites. I see a T-Rex dinosaur!!

  12. Beautiful. Ice formations are like post cards from Mother Nature. They are all beautiful but different. I love them.

    • Eliza Waters says:

      Hi Judy, I love ‘post cards from Mother Nature’ – that is exactly what it feels like when I walk and see all the beauty that MN offers. Thanks for the follow!

  13. What a lovely work of art, Eliza- Nature has made such beauty this winter! The ice crystals have grown in such an intricate pattern. You have a great “abstract” here 😉 Are there more shots like this? Stay warm! WG

  14. Robin says:

    This is so beautiful, Eliza. You captured some wonderful patterns in the ice. I agree with Elizabeth and Barbara — I’d love to see more. 🙂

  15. I see a squirrel munching. Though it could be the T-Rex. 🙂
