I really liked the pattern of ice crystals found beneath a section of ice near a stream bank.

“People grow old only by deserting their ideals, Macarthur had written. Years may wrinkle the skin, but to give up interest wrinkles the soul. You are as young as your faith, as old as your doubt; as young as your self-confidence, as old as your fear; as young as your hope as old as your despair. In the central place of every heart there is a recording chamber. So long as it receives messages of beauty, hope, cheer and courage, so long are you young. When your heart is covered with the snows of pessimism and the ice of cynicism, then, and then only, are you grown old. And then, indeed as the ballad says, you just fade away.” - Douglas MacArthur

Taken hand-held, auto everything, overcast day, macro setting, some PP work in Photoshop CS2.

Great and timely words which show how much words can fit into nature..After all if it were not for words, what would we have? It all fits like a jigsaw puzzle...and you put pieces on the table in the form of nature~!

Hello Larry,
this is an abstract naturally form in the ice. such a special view and you have seen it.
Well placed and well composed to give an attractive presentation.
I cant describe, just can say it so pretty.
Creativity within!
