She looked over my shoulder and said, “Silent Splash.” Done.
Just the right set of circumstances and the right moment. Here’s to im-probability!
You got it.
There’s a sense both of movement and of slow accretion. It reminds me of lava creeping across the landscape, puddling as it goes. As Robert Frost put it:
“Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I’ve tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
I think I know enough of hate
To say that for destruction ice
Is also great
And would suffice.”
What a treat. Can it be possible that the video was cool? No? Ok. It was fascinating. And, you are right that the lava and the ice to seem to behave in similar ways … albeit on very different time scales. The poem was a delight as well. Thanks for taking the time to send them both along. D
Better a silent splash than a frozen smile.
Wow – ice structures are really your true calling!!
That is an inspired title – and the shot is pretty good, too 😀
Joanna continues as my Editor-In-Chief – I can always depend on her!
Wow! This is incredible. Your compositions continue to dazzle and amaze. This is terrific!
That is one of the coolest icicles I have seen. Really nice.
That reads like a Schwartzman-esk play-on-words. Many thanks. D
To give credit where credit is due
Gingoldian is the word for you.
Beautiful glowing ice. Lovely tones. Perfect title.
Something about the black and white really adds to the contrasts in this picture. Kind of reminds me of a cartoon where The Ice Prince comes and turns everything to ice, stopping all motion in its tracks! One and done indeed! 🙂 Looking forward to some colorful signs of spring!
Freezing rain and rain here today. Such conditions notwithstanding, I am convinced that spring is just around the corner.
