    • Ha ha! You’re right on, Miss Maura. It’s deep in my psyche. Glad you like the photos.

    • I like you’re description a lot. Thank you, Elisa!

      • Your passion for photography is contagious! You experiment with so many different subjects and ideas, much more like a work of art than a photograph. I’m feeling it!!

  8. I like these!

    • Thanks! I really enjoy discovering what’s beneath the surface of the ice. It’s otherworldly down there.

    You really do have a knack for capturing beautiful images, Melanie.

  10. You have an awesome eye for unusual subjects! These are great shots – photosynthesis in action. Love them.

    It’s animated! Wonderful!

    • It’s a wonderful illusion the frozen bubbles create, isn’t it?! 🙂

  13. I think I hear the call of Cthulu. Fantastic shots – they look completely unreal – like cosmic monsters.

    January 5, 2013 at 9:52 pm

    • 🙂 I love that! Although, this would have to be Cthulhu’s baby given the size . It’s for images like this that I’m completely drawn to frozen ponds: there are all sorts of extraterrestrial-looking things lying just beneath the surface.

    Excellent ! Very National Geographic/Life Magazine style. In a B&W tonal this would look very Lovecraftian . 🙂

    January 5, 2013 at 10:09 pm

    • Thank you. I do have a few B & W versions (well, and slightly different shots, too), which I may post at some point. They definitely have a different effect. I had a hard time choosing which ones to go with today.

  15. Beautiful other world!

    January 5, 2013 at 11:15 pm

    • Yes, it is otherworldly indeed! Thank you so much for your comment!

      January 6, 2013 at 1:46 am

  16. Fabulous!

    January 6, 2013 at 3:39 am

  17. I’m late again, Melanie, but want to tell you how much I like this little monster you’ve found and the bubbles it’s created. I am also impressed (but not that surprised) that you also know how to spell Cthulhu! Once again, well done!

    January 6, 2013 at 4:15 am

    • Thanks for the nice words, Gary! I’m glad you like my little monster! 🙂

  18. Love the ice bubbles…what a find!

    January 7, 2013 at 3:57 am

    • I just love the frozen pond before the snow falls. There are so many wonderful things to see beneath the surface.

      January 8, 2013 at 1:15 am

      • Yes, there are…almost another world….

        January 8, 2013 at 2:52 am

  19. Absolutely lovely, Lemony. Amazing.

    January 7, 2013 at 6:37 pm

  20. I love the dark depths behind…and the splash of green, sumptuous!

    January 9, 2013 at 10:37 am

    • Yes, it’s the dimension to this image that works for me, too. I love your description: sumptuous! Wonderful! Thanks!
