  1. It's a good thing that you can find the beauty in the cold that's enveloped your country. We've been watching your weather on TV. I hope you don't have a snowy Easter!

  3. The ice and snow look lovely in your photos, but better you than me...I may have been born up in Northern Alberta, but I am not a huge fan of snow. I'm ready for spring. And I'm sure you are too!

  4. Thanks for visiting my blog and the good wishes! Love the icicle photos though it must be really cold where you are. We are still in warm weather here!

  5. Although it looks lovely it must be very cold. Even colder than it is over here. Hoping for warmer weather also for you all on that side of the water. Take care and warm wishes.

  6. There's something about icicles I find just as fascinating as sunsets. I haven't seen many this winter, but there was one in the cherry tree right outside my kitchen window for a day or two. Strangely enough, I never took a picture of it.

  7. What awesome pics! I was looking at the ice and seeing if I could find pictures inside of them..(I'm weird like that) I swear one has a weird face with it's tongue sticking out...I decided it was "Old Man Winter" saying "na,na,na na nahhhh" He's a stinker! Hope Spring finds it's way to you soon!

    1. I'm glad it's not just me that looks for pictures. In the days before central heating I used to look for faces in the frost patterns in the windows.

  8. These are impressive.
    I can see your guttering ending up in the garden. Good luck.

    1. Apart from the conservatory, guttering is for posh people, Adrian. Ours mostly just drips off the roof. That's actually how the sculpture in the bottom picture was formed.

  10. Lovely! thought not perhaps at this time of year... :D
    Did you ever see frost forests on the insides of windows, in the days when people used to think that cold bedrooms were good for people? I simply loved them - almost but not quite worth being freezing cold when you got up!

    1. Yes, Jenny. I even used to photograph them - in my black and white days. I blogged one of those here - http://scriptorsenex.blogspot.co.uk/2008/02/frosty.html.

      We even had one in December 2012.

  11. I am also a photographer of icicles! I mean, they're perfect subjects, aren't they? They sit perfectly still and look lovely. Am wondering what the hand in the last photo is about... as no one else has asked...

    1. The idea was to show the scale of the ice sculpture. (Mind you, P-w-l-t has little hands!!)

  12. I could have sworn that I commented on this post yesterday..where did it go?
    Oh well...loved the ice sculptures, and even though you have made some pretty photos out of them, I know you would sooner have them gone...enough already.

  13. These are absolutely beautiful. No doubt all traces of snow and ice will be gone by the time we visit.

    The ice in the top of the last picture looks like the wing of a bird.

  14. Beautiful - that's something I haven't seen in a long time - we barely get a frost here, maybe once or twice a winter. My kids are desperate to see snow, as they can't remember the few flakes we saw in England before we moved here.
