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.
The top photo and this second one show ice crystals on the common lilac just outside…
