Thanks Susan for being the hostess.
I could hear Lake Michigan, as I placed one foot and then the other foot into the sand and walked. Walked to where I have shot images many times before. Always excited. I love being outside. My passion is taking photographs. I remember when I bought my first camera it was a Brownie Hawkeye. Sorry, got off the subject a wee bit. This time I had a reason to be here at this spot. I knew that ice had formed during the winter months even though we didn't experience snow in January or February which is unusual here in Illinois especially at the lakefront. I sighed with relief when I saw the icicles. I was blessed to be there at sunset because the sun was reflecting on the icicles.
"ice contains no future, just the past, sealed away. As if they're alive, everything in the world is sealed up inside, clear and distinct. Ice can preserve all kinds of things that way-cleanly, clearly. That's the essence of ice, the role it plays."
