    • Thank you, Klaas. I’m grateful for your comment. I’m especially glad to hear that I keep surprising you. I worry that people will be bored that I keep posting photographs of ice. 🙂

  7. I never knew that there were currents in mud puddles until I began looking closely at the kind of ice in your pictures. It’s amazing.

    • One thing I’m learning about focusing on one location, such as the pond, is that I learn a lot of different things by concentrating on that one location for many, many days. Even the same spot in the pond. Lots of interesting things reveal themselves.

  9. Fascinating – the frozen currents look like Hockneys from the 70s (?) – exactly how he expressed ripples on the surface of a swimming pool. The contours are beautiful – it must have been an incredibly rapid freeze. Great shots, Melanie.

    • So interesting–the Hockney reference. I’ve just taken a look, and I can see that! Thank you. I love all the interesting shapes I’ve found as a result of the freeze.

  14. Late again and struggling to keep up while traveling, but have to say I love these, especially the tighter crop in the second one. What a fascinating array of textures!

    • I’m amazed that you would even stop by while travelling, Gary. Thanks so much for your comment. Hope you’re having a great trip!

  15. These are gorgeous. I see the head of a horse in the bottom/middle of the photos.

    January 16, 2013 at 10:58 pm

    • I saw that horse head, too, Maralee, and wondered if anyone else would. Thanks for your comment.
