Fleeting Beauty: Whit(ish) Christmas

Our Christmas wasn’t quite as white as we had hoped, but there was a nice frost (see my previous post), and it was cold enough that there were frozen puddles. As we returned 3229from a walk along our nearby Papio Creek, this one appeared and invited me to make a brief study. I was only too happy to add it to the day’s treasures.

    Very pretty. It’s always fun to see a thin ice sheet above grass and leaves. I can’t quite figure out how the scallops formed — grass blades, maybe?

      I’d think slightly rising and falling water levels as the puddle partially froze and thawed several times, but I’m not sure. But it’s really amazing how water’s properties contribute to such lovely and intriguing abstract patterns.

    Nice to see a few ripples of ice. :-)

  3. Maybe an ice version of tree rings?
