Ice Etching

Some areas of the pond are very smooth and clear, as you’ve seen from some of my posts, and so my photographs have often been focused on what I have been able to see beneath the surface.  Others, in the more shallow sections, are rough and bumpy, or scarred by cuts and cracks.  This surface ice in the image below (unfortunately a bit out of focus) looks almost like it has been carved to me.

    • Thank you, Scott, for hanging in there with me, as I continue with the ice. I’ll be breaking away from it soon, I think. I have a lot more photos, but I’m about ready to move on. 🙂

      • You’re welcome…and there’s no “hanging in there…” I’m loving them. 🙂

  3. I can’t imagine what would have caused such random scratches in the ice, but ice is full of mysteries.

    • It’s the mystery of the ice that keeps drawing me back. 🙂

  4. It’s a fossilized skeleton of some antediluvian creature. I know it.

    • Ah, but the Third Eye keeps secrets unknown to the Mind’s Eye … of lost men and mice entombed in their frozen crypts at the bottom of the sea.
