Tuesdays of Texture – January 24, 2017
“Ice contains no future , just the past, sealed away. As if they’re alive, everything in the world is sealed up inside, clear and distinct. Ice can preserve all kinds of things that way- cleanly, clearly. That’s the essence of ice, the role it plays.”
― Haruki Murakami
The image I chose for today was made a few days ago, as I hiked through a local conservation area. I came across a log which was coated with a thick layer of ice. The temperature was just above freezing, which caused a thin film of water to form on the ice. What really interested me was looking at the ice itself and being able to see the individual ice crystals, each a miniature lens to view the wood beneath the ice.

Beautiful and interesting
Yes… most of us are frozen in time and don’t realize it!
I’ve used this quote before. It resonates with me.
This is stunning … love the texture, it almost looks like barnacles on rocks.
This was made with my new macro lens, just an experiment really.
