Nature's Ice Sculpture

Can you see the heart?

Last week the weather was COLD.  A natural spring near my home flows year round. This week the splatters formed interesting shapes and then slowly melted. Some of the shapes you can see here.

Interesting; nature is quite an artist. The melting heart is very clear!

Beautiful. I love the first one with the heart. We're in a 'heat wave' here this weekend. Going up to 10 again today. ;)

Penelope Postcards said...

I can definitely see the heart and the green clinging to life beneath the ice. :)

It's lovely, pity it's such a cold, cold heart! :-)

Andy said...

You make me feel cold. :)

I suspect that your own heart is warmer than this, but if nature is going into the deep freeze, the shape could have been worse :-)

a very sweet heart. :)

Madge Bloom said...

Yes, I can... and I love it!

Gail Dixon said...

I see the heart! Took me a few seconds, but how cool. Can't believe it's that cold there. We were in the 30s for two mornings this week and for the weekend we will have the a/c back on. Grrrrr.

I see the heart. That seems like a lot of ice. We are getting snow today in our part of the country but no ice like that.

Jest serce, ale z lodu, zimne. Smutno, że idzie taka pora roku. Zdjęcia jednak są świetne. Pozdrawiam.
It is the heart, but with ice cold. I was going this time of year. Photos, however, are great. Yours.

Sandra said...

We're getting thin layers of ice in the nights on the canal, here...

Hi from Nebraska, EU! I complain about the cold here, but now I see it's colder somewhere else. Wow that first picture it's soo cool! Yes, I see the heart!

Ruth's Photo Blog said...

That is so pretty. It takes a quick eye to spot these special things.

Lisa Gordon said...

I do see it, and it's wonderful!

Grandma Barb's This and That said...

I saw the heart right away! Wonderful photo!

Stephanie said...

These are definitely very cool to look at and yes I saw the heart.

Indrani said...

So much of detail there. First snow always thrills!

Rose said...

These are wonderful glimpses of the frozen world...or melting world...whichever way you look at it. I love the shape of the first ones...then something about the second makes me smile...and I have no idea why.
