Ice Manifestations
It's everywhere as winter tightens its grip: Ice in the natural world. Here are a few of my favorite ice photos...

A favorite forest stream just before sunset.  Above- freezing temperatures during the day helped create the glaze on this little pool's surface.

This is my little stream, with water drops frozen in time.

Spray from a waterfall in a small woodland stream built up on a branch to create this ice sculpture. I stood in the water with hip boots and a tripod to get the shot.

Water seeps from this exposed rock wall every winter. As soon as it does, it freezes and puts on a show.

These ice bells formed when a branch over a stream was blown in and out of the stream by winds. When the stream's flow subsided, the bells were left to swing high and dry.
