Leaves in Ice

Leaves are frozen in different states in what was once a puddle, now succumbed to the season’s temperment.

Detailed Stone

Lichen spreads over a rough slab of gray granite.

Frosted Buds

What were once buds have now frozen and continue to freeze the vapor in the
air that blows past, forming crystals on this cold branch.

Etchings in ice

Leaves are frozen into a small stream. Water trickling underneath slowly etches melting lines in the structure above.

As they say, the devil is in the details. All these frozen pictures contrast nature braving the cold of winter and demand that you wonder which part of mother nature will take the contest. Year by year, lifetime by lifetime, which of these things will remain?

One thought on “Details: Frozen Nature

  1. I like the use of photographs to reveal aspects of nature and the seasons that we ordinarily miss or fail to pay attention to. It is one of the roles of the artist to make invisible things visible. Ed Schein
