Watery Wednesday

I thought this was open water, till Jake slipped on it.

You can see the rocks under the ice.

And the crystals of snow on top of it.

I've never seen crystals like that - they're fantastic! I had some near misses today too, on puddles I wasn't expecting to be frozen :0

The juvenile reminds me of me! Although I'm glad to say I'm no longer a teenager - just :)

I love the last shot with all these little different elements coming together beautifully.
I hope I haven't asked you before; but do you have a macro lens? These crystals are wonderful!

Great pictures! Love the thin ice! We never have thin ice here on the sea. I love the snow crystals!
Thanks for your sweet comment!

Cathy said...

Those are great shots
I don't think I've ever seen the sea iced up either. How cold was it to have that happen?

Ebie said...

The snow crystals look lie fireworks in the sky! Great photos.

Your shots are unique and beautiful. At first I wondered how snow could land on the water without melting.

The ice looks so clear - it does look like water.

Clytie said...

The reflections of the sun through the ice are amazing. Beautiful pictures.

George said...

That is some of the clearest ice I've ever seen. I like the snow flakes on the surface of the ice.

Interesting post and great pictures -- but I am mesmerized by your header photo (this is my first time visiting your site). I love lilacs too. Not too much longer...!

Denise said...

How lovely! Nature can create such intricate and beautiful patterns.

Mona Sweden said...

I too thought it was open water until I read the text. Those are fantastic photos! There is a whole world under the ice.

Bronwynn said...

Awesome. I love the feathery look of the snow, especially in the last shot. Very neat

Tricia said...

Oh ok, those are ice crystals, I'm so glad you added that or I would have had to ask what it was. LoL!
