Stepping into a Magical Realm


stepping into a magical realm


find wings of ice
frozen in time


where light does dance
and colors do shine


inspiration for a hearts delight

They are gorgeous Tammie. I would love you to be here to photograph right now. We are draped in mist and droplets of water both early morning and late evening. I wonder what magic you would find.

I see that nature is a source of inspiration for you, Tammie.
Have a good one.

Tammie Lee said...

hi Charlotte,
your misty world sounds beautiful.

yes Tomas, nature is a source of inspiration and also a spirit helper ;-)

thank you both for your kind visits.

Remei said...

Your photos are therapeutic ...
There is so much beauty in this place.

Phenomenal! In all senses of the word... these are amazing!

Cobalt Violet said...

Oh my word! That is so beautiful and magical!
I rarely get to see anything like that ... most of the ice I see is only in my tea. Good but not magical ... nor beautiful!

Really exquisite Tammie!

Tammie Lee, these are just gorgeous. The last one looks like a crystal dragonfly. Stunning macros.

When you put it like this, it makes me kind of like... hate winter less! :D

Barbara/myth maker said...

Wow, stunning shots! The last one looks like a butterfly.

Valerianna said...

Beautiful, Tammie!! And, I just have to say, for the record, that for some immense and important reason, seeing your beautiful face in a post or so ago, or was that on FB, I can SEE these differently... isn't that ODD? Well, like I have more of a frame/reference or some strange thing that just makes me KNOW you a little more. Anyway, I enjoyed that revelation!

Karen Travels said...

I love these macro shots. So lovely. And thanks for the kind words on my blog - a D90 is on my want list, for sure.

sharon said...

A fern garden and icy butterfly! . . . You do live in a magical universe.

Sandra said...

Such beauty captured in dancing light those dainty "wings of ice" like fluttering creatures resting awhile on shimmering stems.
You show us a world that makes us stop and hold our breath at the sheer loveliness of it all! Thank you!

troutbirder said...

Your winter Montana scenes are magical, Tammie. I need to forget about flyfishing one and visit in snow season. (Though once on July 4th I did get caught in a snowstorm in the Big Hole Valley...:)

Sarah Laurence said...

I've never seen ice do that before - gorgeous!

Viola said...

Magnificent work.

Optimistic Existentialist said...

HOW AMAZING!! Unbelievable that you could capture these in such vivid detail.

The Glebe Blog said...

Fabulous Tammie, wouldn't it be amazing if you could magically turn these into bracelets and necklaces. I bet the alchemists have already tried.

Postcards from Wildwood said...

Yes, it is exactly like stepping into a magical realm! Like the wardrobe in The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe - the first photo beckons you in and what you find there is a magical other-world!

Your photos mesmerize me. I am just starting to learn about macro photography, using a borrowed macro lens. I have new appreciation for the skill that it takes to make glorious works of art like yours.

Carol said...

What intricate beauty you reveal so poetically Tammie. A chilling . . . finest layer of perfection. Nature's minute wonders. Beautiful.

Emily said...

That is ridiculously awesome! It reminds me of leaf cutter ants on parade... but frozen

Gaby Bee said...

I'll be back!
