Ice and Water

These are a few of the reasons I like ice and water.

Reflections make pretty pictures.

Patterns in ice create interesting designs of light and shadow.

This ice curiosity formed in a cavity not 3 inches across.

Tumbling water rolled over on itself, trapped air and bubbles resulted.

Rippling water cast yellow-rimmed shadows on the rocks below.

Add the sound of running water to all this, and it explains why I’m drawn to rocky creeks.

    Well done! I know the name of the rocks with the yellow cast on them. Ready?
    Giraffe rocks. Terrible, I know. I miss my hikes to your creek.


  2. Beautiful pics of the ice in the creek/brook. Really nice photos.


  3. Lovely photos! You could spend all day along the creek and still have much to wonder at!


  4. Beautiful captures!


  5. The photos with ripples and rocks are especially intriguing! :O)


  6. I spend a lot of time near water too. Something about it draws me to it. Maybe because I grew up on a river. Nice shots!


    • Thanks. We went to Missouri for 2 weeks every summer when I was a kid. It was a trout park, and the Current River came up in the park. We camped by the stream. Such nice memories.
