I know… it’s a photo that features no celebrities whatsoever

This photo was taken under extreme conditions of sleep deprivation on day 5 of skiing, showing once again that I might not be best suited to taking on black runs in that frame of mind, but the camera still comes with.

As for the title? I think it’s got to do with the helix/double-helix pattern within the icicle itself.


ice, branch, hanging, icicle, berndt2, bernd talasch, the dance, fir tree

Bernd Talasch doesn’t remember being hatched in a research laboratory in Omaha in the late 1950s so maybe that never happened. (Placeholder bio – remember to replace).

    what a beautiful image – the detail is wonderful .. you have a great eye to spot this – it is one of those images that you keep coming back too and looking at with wonderment. Even the simplest of things are complex.
