Icicles and Cobblestones/ Macro Monday



A January Thaw always encourages the formation of icicles...

even though it hasn't been THAT warm!  Not a macro, just a closeup look at iciles dripping from the second storey roof.

Great pictures of the icicles, EG... We've had alot of rain the past couple of days---so no icicles here.
Hugs,

Beautiful contrast there! I love seeing those big icicles but am afraid we won't see any this winter with only one snowfall tht was gone completely in three days.

This is the first year for such a long time that I have seen 'proper' icicles on the eaves.. A also liked the stone work in this shot.

We get icicles too and some grow to look like stalagmites and stalactites.

Cool shot! I love January thaws. We actually had the windows open for awhile on the weekend. :)

Jacob said...

So many memories here...when little kids, we'd break off the icicles and then suck on them...probably very unsanitary, but I can't recall any of us becoming ill...

Nice shot, EG!

Rose said...

Don't they bring back memories of childhood?

I would love to see the rest of that house!

I love looking at icicles. They are all so different depending where they originate from, and I love the stone.
Happy MM.

So much texture in this photo, right down to the reflection in the window. Good one!

Wonderful wintry view of these icicles against the stone structure. Love the light, shadows, and reflections in your shot as well.
Hugs and blessings,

Very nice photo! Me too I like the composition, the presence of two different textures. The stone is normally is a cold material but the ice is colder, therefore on this photo when I look at the stone house I feel a warmth. This is an interesting paradoxe.

Have a beautiful new week,

The picture may not be a macro, but those icicles sure look nice against those stones.

Nice contrast between the ice and stones. The light seems almost warm...but we know better.

Colleen said...

Great combination~ Quite lovely!

I love the stonework! Most of the buildings around here use hewn stone, not cobbles like that!
