Sharp Beauty – Ice Cold Fascination

Etched in Light and Dark

Etched in Light and Dark

There is a sharp edge to the beauty of a cold day.  Lines are etched deeply into the sky by the bare branches of trees and the frost weights and deadens the colours around us.

Frosty cold beauty

There have been many such days over the last month or so!  The cold has been broken by the warm fronts and then comes back.  It is back again.

Perfectly outlined - crisp and curved by the cold.

The ice is again thickening over bodies of water, the puddles and ponds that we see on our walks.

Frozen sculptures rising out the loam, curving and gleaming in the sun.

At Morrell Sanctuary we see Needle Ice, twisted sculptures, rising out of the loam and gleaming in the cold light of today’s intermittent sun.  Frost is edging the ferns and mosses around us as we crunch our way over the frozen ground.

A cold start to the New Year.

Happy Walking
