    What an interesting capture, Eliza. Sometimes I wish our winters gave more subject material like the one in this post.

    For some reason this won’t open. I am in NoCal visiting the twins so maybe it is a connectivity issue

    The scalloped edge is remarkable. I also like the crackle-glaze effect. Keep warm and enjoy your short walks when it is possible to venture out!
