Nature's Ice Sculptures: Part THREE
Today is the last of my series
of the frozen ice sculptures
we saw in the woods.
In addition, about a 1/2 mile from our house on the lake,
(right beside a busy highway)
is a rock cliff
which has been "growing" an ice sculpture
that I have been drooling over for a few weeks now.
I finally had to stop the car and take photos of it for you.
This is a shot of part of the icefalls right beside the highway.
The sky you see in the background is over our lake:
I love the drama that winter snow and ice lends to black and white photography.
I do most of my black and white photos this time of year because of that.
This one begged for black and white in my photographer's eye:
Alot of our icicles on the rocks around here are yellow...we have a lot of iron ore in our rocks
and minerals in our soil.
Which makes great color in the white time of this year and against the rock's
I love looking at the ice closeup and personal:
Or on a wide view:
And the snowcapped ice
I hope your day today
is as golden as these icicles,
as fun as the "powdered sugar" on the icicles
and as intriguing
as this Nature's showcase:

- I retired in June 2008 and started my blog in November 2008. I worked at several jobs as a Registered Nurse prior to retirement. I LOVE being retired! Blogging has offered me a whole new venue to start writing again and to share new hobbies such as gardening, birdwatching and sharing my nature photography.
