a moment of beautiful – ice windows on woodland pools

with 7 comments


the space: pools of water in the Grey Woods

the beautiful: patterns in the thin ice

~

While we wait for a lasting snow in New Brunswick, ice defines the season.  On every pool of standing water, ice-windows have formed.  I love the patterns these make against the amber-colored water!  These are photos of ice windows taken last spring, after the snow had gone.

  2. I am from Gravenhurst in Ontario where Muskoka starts. I have 32 acres with a meadow(I call it) because it is also Red Oaks and Red Maple. The ground is cool clay bottom full of rich plants like ferns. (Sensitive ,Royal ,Cinnamon and Bracken Ferns. Love your site. I have pictures on flickr if interested.
