Spirit of a Crystal


Some things are so rare
so precious
they seem otherworldly

beauty so astounding
it takes
one's breath away

replacing air
with an ethereal
quality

in a timeless way

  1. It's like something was created from seemingly nothing. Transformations can truly be so magical. The twigs and branches look as if they could fly away and travel beyond time.

  3. Wowzer - those pictures!!! Do you go out with a tripod to get those crystal (sorry about the pun) clear images? I love ice crystals but won't be seeing any for a while.

  9. Really beautiful Tammie...your blog is always such a huge reminder to take a moment and breathe in the beauty around us...I guess that's what I would want to say to the world...How much even a few moments spent with Mother Nature can change a day to the better...and it's free!

  14. Ice crystals like this are so magical. They are a piece of artwork that is temporary, gracing our world for what seems like a moment to us, and a lifetime to others. Their delecate nature decorates each surface they form on.

  15. The ice reminds me of what butterfly skeletons must look like. It's not scary, just beautiful.

  16. Winter’s jewels. Ones I would not have seen were it not for your love affair with photography in combination with our mutual SS interest. I love the way the Universe works : )

  17. Those are incredible. I had to look twice to make sure they were ice and not butterflies! They don't look anything like the hoar frost I've photographed. Is this what an ice storm does?

    Beautiful, beautiful!

  19. This morning didn't start out too well: traffic jam and unexpected problems at work. So I decided to take a few minutes off and am glad I did! A branch, water and cold. How simple can works of art get? Thank you for brightening my morning ;-) and for allowing "courageous" questions! ;-)

    Very nice. I'm always fascinated by these crystalline faerie-shots, but just about all of your photographs are so precious / they seem otherworldly...

  22. Discovered this blog though walking in stillness. To discern some feeling or perception is "otherworldly" assumes you make the distinction from the "worldly." Something that appears surreal may be sending you a message about self-evolution.
