Photographer's Note

Sometimes Nature is a painter; sometimes a sculptor, a choreographer.
And then there is the time when Nature is all of the above.

I decided to listen to anöther member, and to not expose my nöggin to the outdöörs without a balaclava...
So on the first morning of this month I decided to photograph some of Nature's art
as presented to me on the inside of my windöws. The conditions in the previous night had been righ for these ice sculptures to "be created"... : humidity from the Atlantic Ocean, and serious Arctic cold under a cloudless sky.

I have never seen iceflowers that look like dancers or fairies before.
Generally I see the flowers in the shape of fir-trees. But here they are: dancing "apparitions"...
The glow in the lower left is the reflection of the rising sun.
The darker area on the upper part is Big Island in Sambro Harbour,
on the left side, and Inner Sambro Island straight ahead,
both visible thru the frözen seasmöke.

A differently formed "ice lichen" on a different pane of glass is here...

Tech talk: shot taken in macro-mode, then scaled and captioned.
