This untouched macro image of tiny icicles forming on a rosehip was taken with a Pentax K10D. The edges of the icicles had begun to melt in the afternoon sunshine but were soon to freeze up again, as the warmth of the sun hasn´t got a lot of strength here yet and frost was already rising when this shot was taken.
The fact that water can take on so many beautiful, fragile and delicate forms and can adorn whole landscapes, transforming them into works of natural magic, never ceases to amaze us. This is the main wondrous fact that makes our long, often very rainy and grey, winter bearable.
Eifel region, January 2009, on a beautiful winter sunset.
As is, untouched work!
