    • C’est vrai qu’on a l’impression de regarder dans un autre monde. J’ai vraiment de la chance: la surface de l’Γ©tang est si claire Γ  certains endroits.

  3. Aahh! Another gem! This is so full of energy!

    • Thank you, Ashley. It’s what I find so fascinating about the pond when it’s frozen: everything appears to be so full of movement and energy, when in reality it’s captured and perfectly still in the ice.

  4. Wow !
    To see this photo, one eye closed = we can see the space in 3D with
    perspective = I like this depth.
    Among potatoes and the coins asteroids, I can see sea-urchin as well.
    It’s a pretty busy Galaxy isn’t it. πŸ™‚

    • I am so glad you told me you’re able to see it in 3D. I have one I will post tomorrow (it will be the 2nd one of the two that I will include in tomorrow’s post), that may have a similar effect for you; I don’t know. I, myself, cannot see in 3D because of a visual impairment. I DO see, now that you describe them this way: the potatoes, coins, and sea-urchin. πŸ™‚ Yes, the pond galaxy is very busy. πŸ˜€

      • In fact, the line or chain of bubbles has the direction with perspective.
        On top of them the two brown twigs (or leaves ?) giving the lines to show
        this perspective as well = hence, with one eye’s view, the brain creates 3D image.
        I got -5 short eye-sight and double vision, still close distance to the screen
        I can see your photo clear. (No double vision with one eye closed πŸ™‚ )

        • I see! Yes, this is how I am able to see (or create) depth or an added dimension in my mind sometimes… through certain placement of lines. I’ll have to practice looking with one eye closed and see what happens. πŸ™‚

  5. Very nice from the ice age.

  6. I love the shots in this series! How did you take them and NOT fall in??

    • Thank you, Miss Maura. I appreciate your visits. The pond is frozen, so I just lie right down on the ice with no worries at all. πŸ™‚

  7. So beautiful!

  8. Spectacular!

  9. Where are you finding these bubbles? A truly fantastic series!

    January 12, 2013 at 12:45 am

    • All of these bubbles are on one pond in northern Maine (which is, of course, frozen at the moment). There are so many different kinds of bubble formations there, and I’m curious now to know if I would find similar kinds of bubbles elsewhere, or if they’re unique to our pond or rather to this area. It seems that the environment here gives rise to special circumstances with how rapidly things freeze.

  10. Such beauty in a place where few, if any, will ever see it. Unless they read your blog-I picture us all on our knees on the ice at some point in the future.

    January 12, 2013 at 10:45 am

    • Such nice words, thank you. I highly encourage a close look at the ice: there is so much to see!

      January 12, 2013 at 3:19 pm

  11. It’s crazy how clear the ice is, that you’re able to see beneath the surface with such ease…beautiful, Melanie.

    • I’m astonished by the clarity in some places in the pond, too. There are other areas that are not as clear, but still make for interesting, textured kinds of shots. I might post some of those, too, at some point. Thank you very much for your recent visit and your generous comments, Scott.

      • It’s always nice visiting, Melanie. πŸ™‚

    This series is just fantastic. You don’t need textures with shots like this one. πŸ˜€

  13. I wonder what Little Webbians would be called?

    January 14, 2013 at 7:32 pm

    • I think you’ve just come up with their name! Little Webbians! I love that! I see a fantastic tale in the making. πŸ™‚
