Winter Magic

it was a cold night
perfect for crystals to visit our winter realm

then the sun rose above the forest of conifers
lighting the crystals
offering sparkles

for a morning
they glowed
offering magic for all to behold

ice crystals

I hope every one is safe and warm through all this cold weather. 
Though cold here, it is not like so much of the country. 
Be safe. 



  1. I honestly think you are from some otherworldly planet where you are known as the Crystal Whisperer and have a most intimate relationship with one Jack Frost, a skilled artist in his specialty. No one, and I mean no one, does it better than you do. No one.

    1. Dear Jeanie,

      Thank you so much. You have touched my heart. I do adore them.
      They inspire presence…. hard to think of anything else in their presence. And they are a doorway, threshold into the sacred divine, making it so obvious to participate in the magic of our beautiful world.

      Thank you for touching my heart this morning.

  2. Glorious ice-crystal designs and that last one quite takes my breath away! Magical winter! I love it!

  13. This is definitely Winter magic, Tammie Lee. The ice crystals formed like feathers, that is truly amazing! Your photos are always a wonder to look at, and when many complain about the coldness of Winter, I think it's just wonderful how you embrace it. There's so much to appreciate this season.
