Country Weekend ~
These are really beautiful ice sculptures !!Gorgeous photos !!Greetings
I'm glad you enjoyed them!
They are beautiful. Surprised you still have ice up there. If you painted any of them, people would never interpret the paintings correctly. But maybe that would be what you'd want. Painters and photographers have a similar eye, don't they. And you have an eye for both.
They are so strange and wonderful, aren't they? I've started to think about using them as inspiration for painting. You're right--without context the viewer might be lost. Which isn't necessarily a bad thing.
wow! I´m sure that they will inspire you for your future paintings!They are really amazing.
Thanks, Alicia! Glad you like them.
Hello Jennifer, Yes, these natural ice formations are magical, reproducing all the surreal effects found in caves, but in ephemeral, delicate ice. By the way, why is the ladder set up against that rock wall?--Jim
The ladder is to get you to a foothold where you can climb above the waterfalls. The most direct way, though not the easiest. Actually, there's no easy way.
Waiting for the ladder reply .
See above. :-)
Totally amazing. Great photos,Jennifer.
Thanks, Michele. I find it amazing too!
And here it is! (Your blog.) Ice can be pretty amazing. Enjoy! I'll remember to look up today. :)
It surprises me how often I forget to look up!
We hardly have snow here in the SW, just lots and lots of rain, so icicles are a distant memory - so beautiful though.
Even though we get them every winter there is still something magical about them---like something in a fairy tale.
Jen... I think the White Witch has been casting her spell on your beautiful Catskills! Such glimmer and sparkle... Very other-worldly. Great ladder.. Adventurers must have the proper tools! Enjoy the sparkle...Spring is coming!
It truly is so other worldly. Makes me think of ice queens and fairies and to want to read fairy tales!
Love the ones over the rocks and moss, they're surreal. Our Winter was so mild I don't believe we had any icicles at all this year. Hadn't noticed until now.
Is has been such a mild winter--in New England too. I am ready for the colors of spring though!
WOW! Whenever I emerge from my cave to check blogger I'm always delighted by your posts, Jen. Your waterfall never fails to make me long for a country cottage. Hope all is well with you!
Thanks, Anne. So nice to see you!
