Photo Study #1 – Icicles

The Path Less Travelled By

Ice water crystals,

Molded to the dormant forms

Of twigs, buds, and stems.

********************

Last year in January I went outside a couple of times with my camera to capture icicles – shimmering and reflecting in the winter sunshine…..also including one overcast day.  And yet, somehow I didn’t get to posting any of those on my blog.

I carried that little twinge of regret around for a while.

So, today another opportunity presented itself – albeit briefly – to run outside with camera again to get some shots of icicles.  As the temperature had warmed up some, the ice in places was melting quickly.  Even though I know there’ll be more snow coming our way here, as I walked along the walkway in the front yard, I didn’t want to pass on today’s crystalline gems.
