Day 345 > Feathers In Crystal

I ventured out into the knee deep snow (should have worn the snowshoes) and subzero temperatures at Baird Creek this morning feeling like a project-worthy photo would be difficult to find under such conditions but I was quickly reminded as I trudged along the creek's edge that there are treasures to be found in nature even at minus 3 degrees F. Incredibly fine, feather-like crystals had formed in snowless pockets on the surface of the ice that now entirely covers the water.
The really amazing thing was that the crystals visibly grew just in the time I spent getting my shots.


  1. Absolutely beautiful. I think I've mentioned before that you have a great eye!

  2. so beautiful, like it was photoshoped or something but its real!
