PHOTOPAGE 414

   

   

 

December 2010

A page of ice, mostly - all photos taken this past December. 

Walk along a pond or river in Winter and notice the intricate contours, spikes, shapes and colors of ice, the mysterious crystallization of water ( some unique properties compared to other solids).  Foreign objects affect the freezing process as you can see by some of the patterns. My favorite here is 414.19 (Cathedral with Beans).

414.10 Crystal Spikes  

So, I've attributed titles to some of the ice patterns as our brains like to relate abstractions to what we are already familiar with.
