Frozen

ICICLE BEARDS

The icicle grew down from a patio chair to the snow on the deck floor. I liked the way the evening light caught the spot where it touched the deck.

Lovely photo of the "icicle beards"--nature can produce the most unusual and beautiful works of art!!! Always fun to check your blog and see what wonderful things you have captured on your camera. Mickie

George said...

You've got some large icicles around your neck of the woods. Most of ours have disappeared (or at least shrunk) after a couple of days of fairly warm temperatures.

Gine said...

Glacial, en effet !

Frank said...

Two super pictures, Carletta. You have frozen time...

diane b said...

Frozen is right...brrrrr. They are marvels of nature.

Jeanne said...

LOVE that first shot Carlotta. You sure have some cold! The one good thing is it gives us good picture taking opportunities!

Jeanette said...

Love the icicle shot. Very cool!

Janice said...

Wow, Great photos! I'm so glad we don't get that much ice around here!

ladyfi said...

What amazing icicle beards!

Donna said...

Beautiful! Gave me chills, LOL!

Lynn said...

Cool captures! (No pun intended.)

xinex said...

Amazing photos! Thanks for stopping by....Christine

Holly said...

We have so few icicles, I guess it just isn't warm enough for them. I do enjoy them and they remind me of when I was a kid. We lived on the other side of the mountains and icicles hung from the eves and barns.

Dimple said...

"Icicle beards" --great phrase!
Ice looks so many different ways, depending on the conditions under which it formed, it's truly amazing!

Ann said...

that icicle is cool but oh my that first shot is stunning. Nicely done

Brenda said...

Perfect frozen shots!

John S. Mead said...

Beautiful! I miss scenes like that here in Texas! Thanks for sharing!

SquirrelQueen said...

Oh I love the icicle beards, you have lots of frozen in your area. Great catch of the sun on the little icicle.

Neal said...

I love it!! I can remember, as a kid, pulling icicles off the house and sucking on them. Probably wasn't very clean but as a kid that is not a concern. :)

Really nice captures. I love the spring icicles on the rock. I have a few places to go for that.The clarity was real nice in your 2nd, you have a nice blog to look over.

Rosemarie said...

Very cool shot!

Janice Thomson said...

Good heavens that's absolutely glorious Carletta. Love that second shot too...super shot!

Kerri said...

That looks so cool! That second one looks like it has little "ripples" frozen in it.
Neat-O!

Sallie (FullTime-Life) said...

Carletta, those are lovely! That spiral icicle is amazing -- I've never seen anything like that one. (Of course, it's been a while since I've seen an icicle at all ;>)

Katherine said...

Oh wow! Great photos :)

I am jealous of the snow - it hit 107 degrees here in Australia today!! Gahh it was unbelievable!

Love your work!
