    Beautiful – that ice looks very delicate.

  2. Two stunners in a row. I see the mask. And the subtle drips of water coming off of it into the main flow. Perfect exposure. Magnificent.

  3. I initially saw the two main streams of water as bars.

    This will sound strange but the first word that comes to mind when I look at this is “delicious!” 🙂 The textures of the ice are marvelous.

    • Not at all, Lemony. Delicious is used in many ways and I am glad that you found this so. Now if you meant in the way we might describe eating an icicle, well that would work too. 🙂 Cold air and crisp detail are a good team. Thanks!

      Well, as strange as this must sound, the first thing that came to my mind was bundles of angel hair pasta being lowered into boiling water. Rotate the image vertically 180 degrees, and that image would really work — delicious, indeed!

      • Well, I guess I can see that. I do love pasta but have to say that would likely not have ever occurred to me. And while I do see it, it will not be one of those cases where I can not unsee it. The mask endures.:-)


  5. Beautiful and perfect title, it does look like a fancy Venetian mask

    • That’s exactly what I had in mind, Robert. This reminds me of those masks people would hold in front of their faces, only slightly hiding their identities as they masqueraded at a fancy castle party.. Thank you.

    I didn’t see your mask at first, but now I do. This would make a great post for Mardi Gras.

    The textures of the ice/snow are so varied. Beautiful! Maybe the gloves are helping?

    • Thank you. Yes, they are to a point. The batteries take forever to charge, a bit of an exaggeration, and if I get impatient or don’t start the charge early enough they only provide heat for a short time. Today I supported them with heat packs in my palms and that worked great although it was 10° warmer, or should that be less cold?, so not a true test. Every little bit helps. 🙂


  8. Nice Steve! Love the textures in the ice and the smooth flow of the water.
