The Icing Over The Creek ...


“Music comes from an icicle as it melts, to live again as spring water.”
       ~ Henry Williamson
         ~ 1895-1977
       ~ English army officer, naturalist,
        farmer & ruralist writer
Icicles seemingly sing with artistic beauty in the sunshine of a winter afternoon, after forming on a fallen tree trunk over the Jordan Creek, in this high contrast monochrome shot I captured on a January day at Trexler Nature Preserve, Schnecksville, Pennsylvania.

Frosted Fire ...



“It is the life of the crystal,
the architect of the flake,
the soul of the sunbeam,
This crisp winter air is full of it.”
       ~ John Burroughs
         ~ 1837-1921
         ~ “Winter Sunshine”
            ~ 1875
The pink hues of a winter’s cotton candy sunset dance among the ice floes in the Jordan Creek on an early February day at Trexler Nature Preserve, Schnecksville, Pennsylvania.
