  1. Cool (and cold 😉 ). I love the first one with the strange little balls of ice.

  2. Simply beautiful! Reminiscent of an underground cavern.

  7. I’m trying to imagine how the ice bubbles form. Isn’t nature wonderful (even though I prefer it a tad warmer.) Beautiful shots, Scott.

    • I think these are solid like marbles…and I have no idea hope it happens, either…. And yes, Nature is wonderful, Gunta…so wonderful…. Thank you. 🙂

    Beautiful – Nature does give us some unique images indeed.
    What interesting balls of ice.

    December 26, 2012 at 3:41 pm

    • Very interesting, Victoria…thank you.

  10. Along the river bank….but I don’t think that Mr Toad would be amused….too cold by far. You captured some amazing ice forms Scott. Take care, it looks very slippy.

    December 26, 2012 at 4:49 pm

    • No, I think Mr. Toad has already tucked himself away for the season…and yes, I had to exercise a bit of caution out there, as the footing was very precarious…thank you, John.

  11. That’s exactly what I did today!

    December 26, 2012 at 5:42 pm

  12. I love these photos; nicely done! Ice can provide so much beauty!

    December 26, 2012 at 9:41 pm

    • Thank you, Terry…and yes, it certainly can…I think I spent about 20 minutes at this one spot in the stream…almost mesmerizing in its beauty. 🙂

      December 27, 2012 at 8:52 am

  13. Stunning natural art works

    December 27, 2012 at 3:58 am

      December 27, 2012 at 8:53 am

  14. Very pretty!

    December 27, 2012 at 6:56 am

    • I thought so, too, Meanderer. 🙂

      December 27, 2012 at 8:53 am

  15. So cold, yet very lovely! Robyn

    Wow, Christmas pearls!! If only you could take one home..

    December 28, 2012 at 10:54 am

    • I don’t think they would make it very far, Cath…but that would have been nice. 🙂

      December 31, 2012 at 7:56 pm

  17. Wow! Ice is magical isn’t it? These are so interesting. Beautiful work.

    December 30, 2012 at 9:05 pm

    • It sure is, Karen…thank you.

      December 31, 2012 at 7:57 pm

  18. It must be incredibly cold there to freeze ice in drops! I never saw water freeze like this before. These really are incredibly beautiful photos, Scott! At least, have a photo book printed before you feel overwhelmed by the sheer number of photos. Maybe photo books on several subjects for the kids. You can work on the published version later… I want to see the writing published too.

    You were one of the five people who commented most on my blog this year with over one-hundred comments! I should have realized that , but I didn’t for some reason. Perhaps I just take you for granted since it seems to me that I know you so very well. I always thought that from the very first post I read on your blog. I’m certain that many other people feel the same way.

    • It does get very cold out there, George…presently it’s around 16 degrees in the neighborhood outside of the canyons, so I would imagine that it’s pretty close to 10 degrees or lower out there now…plenty cold to make such wonderful natural art. I don’t know about photo books, yet, George, but I have considered some calendars…maybe…. And yes, I would love to see the writing published, too…rather like a dream.

      Yours has always been a comfortable place to sit and visit for a while…seemed natural to share a few words with you, too…. I enjoy your company very much, George…kindred spirits….. Thank you for your kind words.

  19. Love what you and your eye do with ice and moving water. I’d really like to see a portfolio dedicated to this eloquent passion of yours. Please bring us more! Also, thanks for your friendship and for sharing your good opinions. You were one of the top two friends who provided feedback to me in 2012, and I’m very grateful.

    • It’s truly a pleasure to receive your kind words and to know that you enjoy my photos as you, do Gary…and it is even more rewarding to have developed the friendship that we have over the months…you are most welcome for my comments, too…it’s always wonderful visiting with you, peeking into your life’s travels and admiring your photography, too…. Thank You, my friend. 🙂
