Ethereal


we had an ice crystal morning

last night the moon and the stars danced in a clear sky
temperatures dropped to 9F
inspiring crystals to manifest

lovely ethereal beings they are
whom became more ethereal as the sun kissed their tiny wings
and they took flight 
melting and mingling with the air

Tammie!!! Your icicles are the most wonderful images I have ever seen. My teenage daughter has expressed interest in photography. I let her use my Canon Xsi and she had fun. I am going to save enough money to buy her a macro lens so she can take miniature worlds. I am so excited. Next week I hope to sit down with her and show your her your photography. I can't can't wait!!! Thank you for sharing your gifts.

dearest abigail,
I know you can picture it out here in these woods as they are cloaked in lovely crystals.... for once these were the woods you also called home. thank you for your lovely words.

Ces, how fun that you and your daughter will be pouring over my images... wish i could be a butterfly on your shoulder as you do so. wishing you so much fun exploring photography with her!

Really incredible.

Charlotte said...

They are so lovely, wing like is just right.

Your photos are such a contrast to the dull and dank weather we have here at the moment (although it is now clearing and the planets: jupiter and venus are incredibly clear).

I am sorry if you got the spam from my hotmail account, I got hacked! I have got rid of the pesky virus so you shouldn't get anymore junk claiming to be from me.

TL-I am so pleased that the moon and night offered the opportunity for these magical crystals to emerge; and so glad you captured them so we could share before they took flight into the sunlight. Magnificent. B

Truly, these are the most delicate of winter fairy wings, captured in the breeze. I can't imagine how amazing they must have looked from far away, too... coating the branches.

Stunning photograhs! We don't get days like that here in the south of England - I am missing out!

Angela Recada said...

Oh wow! These photos are amazing. I love how the ice looks like wings. It never ceases to amaze me, all the forms that H2O can take. And all the unique beauty in a sliver of ice etched by the elements.
