    The bits of green and gold are wonderful. It looks as though nature might have been a bit distracted when trying to complete the third side of that triangle.

  3. I love how you capture – and highlight for the rest of us – such natural wonders that most people would certainly over look.

    So fascinating. Sometimes it almost begins looking metallic.

  5. Now that’s yummy geometry. Too bad we didn’t get (or at least I didn’t find) anything like that during our recent sub-freezing spell.

    • Ice like this generally forms by freeze/thaw/freeze with the second ice layer elevated slightly above the water surface. If you just stayed cold until it warmed above freezing then it is less likely you would have found some.It is too bad though. I am sure you would have had fun scouting out the patterns.

  6. Ooh this reminds me of our week of frozen weather and frozen puddles in Belgium. Love those formations. But am glad it’s warmer now. 🙂

    • If one takes the time to slow down and look at things there is so much to see. To alter the Moody Blues title a bit, looking is the best way to travel. What’s right outside our door is amazing. Thanks, Peter!

    Beautifully handled, Steve. A rainbow of colors hides in there.

    Your entire image is spectacular, with the remarkable crystal shards, but I find myself particularly drawn into the repeating patterns in the upper fifth, and I’d love to see a more detailed study of that section. Did you use an UV filter to bring out the wonderful little rainbow colors?

    • I did not compose closer but, of course, could crop a part of the frame to share. The only filter I use is a circular polarizer which sometimes helps and other times does not. But the color is there as the clear ice acts as a prism. I’ve shared others with that effect over the years.

  13. Nature has so many forms in it, even geometric forms that we normally consider to be man made. Beautifully captured. Stephen.

  14. Amazing! This looks like so many other things, but in any case is just beautiful.
