The ice has melted along the shoreline of most lakes. As the wind moves the ice around, it is pushed up on shore, breaking into millions of crystal clear shards. If there’s just a small breeze, the broken pieces, in the water, tinkle, like pieces of glass.

    This is an AMAZING piece of art. What a beautiful, abstract photo. Everything about it is so appealing. It’s like you broke open a geode and held it to the light.

  • Thank your very much, BeautifulRust !

    Stan,,,,,,,,,,this is beautiful. I can almost hear the tinkling:-))
    While the ice on Lake Winnipeg was beautiful to see, this would be too, much more delicate and gentle, love it and a fave for me before I even wrote

  • Thank you very much for such an encouraging comment and the fave, Vickie !
    When we got there, I was afraid we wouldn’t find much. The ice seemed to be piled on the opposite side of the lake, which is inaccessable. We followed one of the trails we were down a few days ago and found this very near to yesterday’s post of Out of the Ice. Pays not to give up too easily. :)
