Winter has settled in here in New England. We’ve had rain, sleet, snow and now our first ice storm of the season. The side roads and driveways were like skating rinks. I ventured out on the crusted grass and took a couple of photos.
Then I received a blog post from a fellow blogger who is also a Master Gardener in my county. This gentleman is a photographer with skills.
I looked through the post and was in awe of the last photo. I sat looking at it and while always appreciating the beauty of Mother Nature I couldn’t help wondering what it was a photo of and how to explain the design and color.
I kept looking at it and thinking it looked like some of the most beautiful free motion quilting I’d ever seen, but I just couldn’t understand the color or what it had to do with ice.
So, I asked him, and when I received the answer I still couldn’t believe it.
He had cleared ice off his truck, it refroze, and he photographed it. Can you believe it? This beautiful design is ice on a truck hood.
It reminded me that we should never forget and truly appreciate the raw beauty of Mother Nature and what you can do with a good camera ‘if’ you have real skills. 🙂
