Nice Ice

My magical little ditch rarely disappoints.  There’s something about the deep pools of clear water in summer, the kaleidoscope of reflections in fall, and now the minute ice crystal formations in winter.  A few days of warmer weather followed by a bit of chill resulted in some amazing creations. All in miniature, these sights take some time and effort to see.


On the surface: yikes! a skating rink!


The ditch, looking rather ordinary.


Yet it also holds the extraordinary.


A myriad of geometrical wonders.


The ice looks like a microscopic slide of something else… It’s own translucence creates a play of light and extra depth.

More ice shots tomorrow!  And the next day and the next.  I took quite a few 🙂
