    Art produced by nature and nicely captured by you.

  7. Nice finds, Eliza. From your brook? They won’t enlarge for me but I can see their beauty and great patterning as they are.

      Thank you, Steve. From a seep across the street. Too much water in the stream and river to form this kind of ice. Those are bubbly and chunky, as well as layers. Another opportunity!

    These wonderful photos will inspire me to go out and take some shots of a creek about 2 miles from home, maybe. 😜

    It looks as though some flash freezing might have been taking place. The patterns are beautiful, and clearly show the influence of the leaves beneath them.

  15. Alice says:

    Bubbles, swirls, layers of patterns and delicate ice colors…fascinating…the last photo looks like a stingray!

  16. Ice swirls and ice bubbles are fascinating. I’m glad you got the chance to photograph them. (I wanted to enlarge, as you urged, but when I click on these pictures they don’t enlarge for me.)

    The icy swirls draw one in deeply. Mesmerizing image Eliza.

  24. Dale says:

    These are stunning (just so you know when you have a slideshow, you can’t click and make them bigger). They didn’t need to be, though!

  25. Beautiful shapes, how they all created different shapes and colors amazes me. Ice is a truly fascinating!
