    Love this, Eliza. The ice is mesmerizing!

  4. Such swirling movement

  5. Joanne says:

    This is amazing image to me, Eliza – I can’t imagine the temperature getting cold enough to form ice like this! Wonderful. ๐Ÿ™‚

  6. A true natural abstract!

  7. Ice can be very artistic!

    Beauty captured in ice, which is beautiful in its own way.

  10. Very nice Eliza! Beautiful image!

  11. Alice says:

    Fascinating. I ‘see’ a seal head with beautiful right eye in the left-middle.

  12. Jewels says:

    Beautiful image Eliza! I love the textures! Hope you’re keeping warm and well! โค

      Thank you, Julie! This has been a mild winter so far, with daily temps above freezing. Not so long ago we’d go 6 wks without rising above freezing. The new normal, I guess, for better or worse. It does make it more comfortable for getting out for walks. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  13. Wonderful swirl of ice with the dried stalks.

  14. I think your coats might be heavier than mine! Gorgeous photo.

  15. I love your nature abstract Eliza!

  16. Debbie says:

    A thin coating of ice makes everything beautiful (but treacherous!). Be safe out there, Eliza!

  17. Kris P says:

    It may be uncomfortable but there’s a lot to say for the beauty cold creates!

    A beautiful capture Eliza!

  19. I envy you being able to just walk a few feet and find these almost at your doorstep, Eliza. Lucky you! ๐Ÿ™‚ I always enjoy seeing these “outlines”.

  20. That’s how things look in many places in Austinโ€”minus the ice, of course.

    Nature is the greatest artist. lovely photo Eliza

  22. susurrus says:

    I find this almost hypnotic. The lines are like reflections allowed to go their own way.

    • Eliza Waters says:

      Thank you very much, Susan. The art of nature, and particularly in this case of ice, does have a hypnotic quality for me. Glad you liked it. ๐Ÿ™‚

    This photo has the quality of a painting. It’s just stunning Eliza.

  24. pbmgarden says:

    You have such a good eye–great photo. One of my favorite books for a while (which I can’t seem to locate at the moment) was Abstraction in Art and Nature or some such title.

  25. livblumer says:

    Looks like someone below the surface of the water is breathing and creating those swirls. Who could it be?

    To click trough your blog was really amazing. ๐Ÿ™‚ I am a student from Austria and the task to create my own blog with wordpress was given to me. To get a good mark at university it’s neccesary to have a lot of visits and follower. I need klicks every day until 25th of January. My blog is about my wonderful homeland Carinthia. In fact it’s really hard to get visits, likes and follower. It would be a pleasure, if you would follow me:


    Thanks ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Eliza Waters says:

      Blogging takes a fair amount of time and attention. But it is a great way to virtually ‘meet’ people and ‘visit’ other lands. After seven years, I have many good friends on WP and have learned a lot. There is a saying here, that ‘the best way to have a friend is to be one.’ So I suggest you like, follow and comment on other blogs and they will do the same. ๐Ÿ™‚

    I really like this photo Eliza, of the psychedelic ice scene. So much color and texture and activity in this wintry spot on earth.

  28. What a beautiful photo, Eliza โค I've been looking forward to photographing ice, but we've not seen much more than light frost thus far. You find beauty in even the coldest garden scene! Thank you for being the first to follow the newly launched site. I appreciate that so much. Stay warm, e

    • Eliza Waters says:

      Thank you for your visit and comment, E. Here, the weather today felt more like March than January with it warming above freezing and leaving the dirt roads slick with mud. Normally, our January days rarely go above freezing, so it seems odd.
      I feel privileged to be your first follower! May there be many more!

      • Thank you so much, Eliza. It feels like early spring here, too. Believe it or not, we still have geraniums blooming on our front porch and scented geraniums that have not yet succumbed to frost. We have plenty of mud, from all of the heavy rain lately, too ๐Ÿ˜‰ It was perfect that you are the first to follow the new site. I appreciate your likes and comments so very much. Hope you have a great weekend, Eliza โค โค โค

    Nature is amazing and you’ve found a wonderful combination of textures and patterns, Eliza. Beautiful! โค๏ธ

    It’s complicated!
