    They are like waves on an ocean – lovely

  2. MK says:

    These look like waves holding still for the camera. I cannot imagine the process in nature that produced these forms. What a wonder to capture & share!

  3. BunKaryudo says:

    These are beautiful, but I’m cold just looking at them. ๐Ÿ™‚

  4. Walking My Path: Mindful Wanderings in Nature says:

    So beautiful, Eliza. I may just follow up on some ice sculptures from here. You know – you and me – we are drawn to so many of the same things. I love that!! โค

  5. Laurie Graves says:

    Great photos! How wonderfully you captured ice.

  6. Very cool or cold Eliza!

  7. Pauline says:

    They are really beautiful but it looks so cold!

  8. Robin says:

    Beautiful waves of ice. They almost looks like a glass staircase. Very cool. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Stunning photos…

  10. Extraordinary landscapes or is this a frozen riverscape? It’s so beautiful – I imagine being outdoors to take the shots is challenging!

    • Eliza Waters says:

      Thanks, Liz. This is from a nearby stream. The day was rather bitter (-26C windchill) but I was so in ‘the zone’ I barely felt it, thanks to a down coat and insulated boots. I was out for two hours before I had to pack it in, due to stiff fingers. Ice is so mesmerizing to me, it continues to build and change every day.

  11. Nature sculpts so beautifully!

  12. Ann @Ann Edwards Photography says:

    gosh, how cold it must be there! I agree completely with Kimberley above, they are like beautiful sculptures. Keep warm!

    • Eliza Waters says:

      Thank you, Ann. It is common at this time of year to go weeks without the temps rising about freezing, so we get these lovely ice formations. As we haven’t had snow, they haven’t been covered over. The gallery is open until it does!

  13. Amazing pictures of nature in the cold ๐Ÿ™‚

  14. Val Boyko says:

    Lovely captures of Natures water sculptures Eliza!

  15. maureenc says:

    Eliza your captures of frozen nature are exquisite. The staircase of frozen wavelets is awesome to one who has never experienced the degree of cold that you live with. I hope you weren’t in the pathway of storm Jonas.

  16. arlingwoman says:

    Goodness, an esplanade of ice steps. They must have been dazzling in the light.

  17. LB says:

    Hello Eliza, as I was visiting blogs this evening, I realized that a few times, I was following you. So of course, I had to visit. And I’m so glad that I did. Aren’t those ice formations amazing?!

  18. Inger says:

    Such beautiful shapes created by the ice! Have you been to Yellowstone? The shape reminded me or Mammoth hot springs.

  19. Your eye catches such beauty! and I also want to thank you for all of your encouragement this past year, Eliza! You posted the MOST comments on my blog! WOW! Thank YOU! I am hoping to do better this year…time will tell…difficulty in writing lately…THANK YOU for all of your kind words these past 12 months!

  20. I absolutely love this!! I just took a walk today and took so many pictures of the ice and snow and sludge all around! It was so hard walking in that slippery stuff but so inspiring! Winter really is quite beautiful! Even with cold slush in my shoes! Lovely photos!! I love the texture and ridges and the slippery look. โค ๐Ÿ˜€

  21. Jane Lurie says:

    Brrr…. wonderful patterns of nature, Eliza. Ice is so captivating.

  22. ladyfi says:

    Gorgeous ice patterns.

  23. How fascinating. It is like the tide coming in.

  24. Cathy says:

    I have never seen such wonderful shapes in ice before. Lovely photos Eliza.

  25. albert says:

    Lovely. Mysterious. Beauty everywhere!

  26. adeleulnais says:

    They are beautiful, the perpetual motion of water caught by The Snow Queen.

  27. Beautiful photos, Eliza! I just about fell off my chair because my next post will be of ICE! Wow!!! I’m laughing as I write this …. we are on the same page! โค

    • Eliza Waters says:

      Absolutely, what else do we northern nature lovers have to take photos of? ๐Ÿ˜‰ With the lack of snow so far, the ice has been fantastic, yes? Thanks, Amy, looking forward to your ‘icy’ post. โค

      • I just finished editing my images of ice and all I can is wow! It’s a good thing I did because today I am seeing green grass again! Everything has melted (again)! This has been the oddest winter! โค

      • Eliza Waters says:

        It really is odd, to say the least! I see that the end of this week and all next the highs here will be in the 40s. What little snow we have will surely be gone by the end of the week. Very unusual winter!

  28. Maria F. says:

    Great choice of monochrome, I like it.

  29. Maria F. says:

    Maybe it is in color, now that I think.

  30. dorannrule says:

    These are lovely images of winter’s drawings, shapes and shadows.

  31. Kathy Sturr says:

    COOL! (I see a painting in these!)
