01.20.2023 Frozen Friday

Okay, a new FF.  🙂

As much as I like frost, the subdued yet interesting background, leaves and mud, I find most pleasing here. Also the resemblance to outer space.

Although captured on a different day in 2012, this is on the same beaver pond in Cadwell Memorial Forest as the Frozen Friday shot posted on the 6th. Not quite as cold so my jeans were not captured, just this hoar-frosted pine twig.

    The mud is a lovely colour – very chocolatey! I think we have a ‘Frozen Friday’ here too brr!

  2. I also get the “floating in our space” feel.

  3. My first thought was that someone dropped their magic wand, but I see the outer space feel too.

    I’m with Rob on this one. The first thing I saw was a fairy’s wand: possibly of the sort carried by a kindergartener dressed in pink tulle. Those elongated crystals are really cool, in every sense of the word.

  5. This almost looks like a sort of dragonfly.

  7. Nice Steve! The dark background really makes the frost “Pop out”!

    The pine twig appears to float in outer space.

    I thought of (yet another) food fantasy but once you mentioned outer space that’s all I can see now.

    Resistance is futile.

    The leaves and mud make for some very nice tones, giving it a bit of warmth despite the ice.

  12. This does look celestial and very unique! It might do well printed and in some juried show.

    • There is a spring show coming up soon that I enter every year but their theme and this may not get along. I am talking with a gallery owner about doing a show there and might go for ice abstracts. Thanks, Denise!

    I agree, the fact that the background is barely discernable and that outer space feeling make this very appealing. And the twig seems to dance. 🙂
