  2. The perfect symmetry of the microscopic explosions fascinates me. A physicist would find it perfectly logical, but the rest of us find it extraordinary! You are illuminating a microcosm of endless wonder, Lemony. The second image is a representation of the evolutionary history of our solar system and us. If you look, you can see us along the periphery of the exploding stardust.

    • Your words here are such a treat, George. You have such a poetic way of expressing yourself; it’s always such a pleasure to read your comments. You experienced this image just as I hoped! Thank you!

  3. Considering it is a 3D structure frozen in the ice —–
    if any scientist can explain I’d like to hear how it was made.
    Nothing but fascinating.
    (In fact you are capturing quite few phenomenon for the
    scientists to scratch their head 🙂 )

    • Wonderful! I like to make scientists scratch their heads! 🙂 I, too, am scratching mine over this one. So many wonders in our little pond.

  4. That’s really incredible, Lemony. It looks like a frozen dandelion.

    • Thank you very much, Karen. I had the same thought about the dandelion, and am considering doing a post to compare some of my dandelion shots with these.

  7. Whats your secret? 🙂

    • I wish the secret were mine. 🙂 It’s the pond that holds all the secrets. All I have to do is show up. 🙂

  11. That’s amazing. What could have fallen into the water to cause this? And then to have the aftermath flash freeze in what must have been an instant. it’s amazing.

    • You’re asking the same questions I am. I wish I knew the answers.

  12. Wonderful!!

  13. Wow – crystalline, perfect, abstract – like flowers blooming in the void! How big an event was this? It looks monumental.

    January 25, 2013 at 9:27 pm

    • Again, such wonderful words, Richard. Thank you. You’ve asked a great question about the size. Actually, this event was rather small, despite how large it appears. It is no larger than an average-sized peach. 🙂
