Air is still under lock,
without a key;
Water is still hard as rock,
on its way to the sea;
Fire is both here and thare.
Earth is near, yet so far.

The meltwater of the snow generated above the Atlantic Ocean is still on its journey home.
It has to cross the yet frozen earth.
Solar fire needs to speed its passage.
Yet it is trapped, as if turned to stone...
imprisoning the very air that carried the snow.

Some of it will "stick around" a bit as it gets immobilized.
Meltwater freezes easily, especially when it strays on stonecold objects! And it was still cöld enough töday, eh!

Sö this shot is a response to the comment from Rick who wrote: "... and soon to be set free... ".

Yesterday's trio. Möre Nötes later...

PS The section of the icicle is less than one inch long.
QUESTION: Can you tell from which side the solar fire is coming?

Interesting icicle macro Jay, but it could use a bit of sharpening.

Hi Jay.
I wait an answer. Interesting "scientific" shot. Only I prefer to see icicle at whole (I mean its tip) and more strong vertical cropping. My best wishes and TFS.

Hi Jay,
This is a nice posting but I prefer yesterdays where your capture was back lite AKA back side. Congrats on your first 1000, and hope you continue to entertain and educate us for many more.

Salut Jay
Très esthétique ce glacon avec cette belle lumière et ses reflets interessants, la composition est très intéressente avec de jolis détails et un beau BG
Merci et au revoir...JP

Hi Jay

an increasingly rare sight in my part of the world these days, so great to see. Nicely composed and a great record of nature's art that only exists all too briefly.



Hi Jay,
this is a photo of a subject that I have tried to capture but have yet to do justice to.You have caught the icicle with its bubbles very well.I hope soon not to see very more of these as winter seems to have dragged on to long this year for my liking,it is not all bad,it is I can't wait till spring and warmer weather.I will look at this when the summer comes rolling in and wish it were winter-go figure,eh!Thanks for sharing. Bob

Hello Jay,
Wonderful close up.Well caught framed and composed.Details, blurred BG and 3D effect are also excellent.

Wow! Great idea Jay! Your macro is outstanding! Excellent details, well-chosen BG .
To answer your question with a guess: I'd say the flare is coming from the left.

Nice capture Jay. The air bubbles in the ice makes an interesting close up. But is not hanging straight? (LOL)


Good macro shot.
Amazing how air gets trapped in the icicle, suspended as it is.
But I did love the irridescence of the sun's "flare" captured in the photo!!
