Still Learning To See

Finalist #29, ice on the stream’s bank

CVMC Finalist-9314We’ve cycled back round to that point in the year where the streams freeze. When the process is just beginning, beautiful, clear ice can form along the banks of the stream. I love the contrast between the still liquid water rushing along and the ice, encapsulating the leaves.

  1. This is stunning–the subtle leaf colors under the ice are glimmering!

  2. Thank you! Yes, I love the way the leaves show through the clear ice. It never lasts long, soon to be snow covered, but is always beautiful while it does.

    • Sometimes I wonder if the appreciation of beauty–especially in nature–is partly based on the fact that the moment DOESN’T last. I used to want to hold onto moments so tightly and mourned their passing. Your photographs allow that moment to be treasured, even when gone. You are a custodian of beauty 🙂
