“Duffins Creek Ice Art II” – near Whitevale

“Duffins Creek Ice Art II” - near Whitevale

Nature is constantly amazing me. The image above is a simple shot of a frozen Duffins Creek. It looks like some marvelous abstract art piece that you would see in an expensive downtown gallery. But, this one’s free and created through the natural freezing process.

If you take the time to really look, you can see how the layers may have built up, how the water ebbed and flowed between the rocks on the creekbed, creating intricate curves, and trapping air bubbles.

I may start a whole series of these and compare different creeks in their ability to create art.
