The Natural Splendour of the Arrow Lakes

The Wonders of Ice Crystals

Last Friday my wife and I walked through deep snow down to our favourite spot at the Arrow Lakes. Biene wanted to collect a few more stones for her rock painting, while I was more interested in taking a few more pictures.  From trudging through the snow and perhaps from the aftereffects of a bad cold, I felt so exhausted that I had to sit down at the edge of the forest. When I had sufficiently recovered, I looked at the surrounding walls of snow and discovered the wonderful world of ice crystals, which had formed in the process of alternate melting and freezing. Thus, thanks to my state of exhaustion, I discovered something I would have otherwise overlooked. How many different creatures can you see in these macro images? Enjoy.

    7) a duck
    8) to the left a sad frog, to the right a bird shaking its head so that water drops fly around.
    There is nothing so bad that it is not good for something …. o.k., not everything is …

    In every photo, it’s the clarity of the ice that I find especially pleasing. As for figures, I see a turtle in the second, and a duck in the next-to-last, and a child running down a path with clutched schoolbooks just above the ‘duck.’
