  1. Fascinating…….almost looks like an alien life form…and a SCARY one at that!

    • Alien, yes! And I can see how it has a bit of a scary look to it, too. Thank you, Pam!

  2. Beautiful! I love the frozen motion.

    • Thanks, Allen! This frozen motion is one of the things that fascinates me about ice! And a stream in winter is one of the best places to find it. ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. Fascinating image! Love the movement it suggests.

    • Thank you, Denise. The water of this stream freezes in such wonderful ways. It’s always so interesting to me to see how what was in constant motion is gradually and finally stopped, but still appears to be moving.

  4. Great!

  5. Gorgeousโ€”it looks so ALIVE.

  6. Whow … really nice. I was totally convinced this was the skeletal remains of one or another sort of organism … a cat or dog perhaps. Why D1? D

    • Thank you, Dave. The D1 is just my own internal filing title. I intentionally did not title more specifically or thematically, because I didn’t want to influence what people might see in the image. Skeletal remains is right along the lines of what I see, too. ๐Ÿ™‚ I’m glad you like it!

  7. This is wonderful. Skeletal ice!

  8. Looks almost slimy and a sinister shaped texture —– still
    nothing but a hard frozen water was clearly captured.
    Well done !

    • Hmm, I like that descriptor “slimy” for the ice–very interesting to me. And “sinister shaped texture,” too. Wonderful words. This ice formation surprised me when I came upon it in the woods. It was a lucky find. Thank you, Yoshi-sensei!

  9. It has a skeletal look I like – nice ice crystals, fine composition as well.

    • Thank you, Tom. I really appreciate your feedback. I enjoyed your recent Stream Ice very much!

  10. Such an interesting ambiguity – it’s very difficult to stop your mind from piecing together some dead flying creature. Fabulous!

    January 12, 2014 at 7:22 am

    • No need to stop your mind! Piece together away! ๐Ÿ™‚ I can see the dead flying creature, too. Thank you, Richard!

  11. Heaven Forbid! It’s an exploded ribcage! And a gorgeous one at that! ๐Ÿ™‚

    • All I can do is smile. You do know my visual lexicon, don’t you. ๐Ÿ™‚ Thank you, George.

  12. Fascinating photo!

    January 12, 2014 at 4:21 pm

  13. This is unforgettable, Melanie. Apart from the alien overtones, which many of your other followers have recognized, part of what makes this such a striking image is that there’s actually a full face in the midst of the smooth vortex just downstream from the “rib cage,” and its expression is really ominous. Very well spotted, indeed–but I think this may be haunting my memory for a while!

    January 12, 2014 at 4:34 pm

    • Gary, what a wonderful comment. Thank you. I see the face you’re talking about–along with a few others! I hope I haven’t given you nightmares! ๐Ÿ™‚

      • Not yet, but then again, I haven’t slept on it yet. If you have, I’ll let you know, and I’ll send a few your way to see if I can return the haunt.

  14. Intriguing! So much rich iconography!

    January 14, 2014 at 11:06 pm

  15. Stunning!
