I hadn't intended to post before Friday, which will be my first blogging anniversary, but the ice I've seen over the last couple of days has been so fabulous, I had to share it with you. It amazes me how many ways water molecules will arrange themselves in freezing conditions. A couple are from the hoar frost but the rest are puddles and accumulations on Kestor Rocks.
The top of a gate
Multiple grass banners
These look like ice flowers but were growing out of the peat in a small gulley
What a great fabric design this would make....
There was no water left in the dip below this sheet, just a dry, empty hole
This is massive piece is about five foot tall! A few more close ups of it:
These next two are taken Halfway up Kestor:
Closer up on the fabric design one. White chiffon perhaps?
Daisy's routine is quite established. She spends the night up here, arriving mid afternoon and then leaves early morning to go and stand out on the moor, fairly close by, just staring into space. She must be close to giving birth surely. Here she is yesterday morning:
And this lunchtime....all alone as usual.
Before I go, I think I have cracked the Macro Post mystery. It still gets over a hundred hits a week so I had another look at it yesterday. I suddenly noticed that I'd mentioned I was off to watch Borgen and I'm sure that's what it is. I guess if this one gets the same reaction I'll be right although, with it being off the air at the moment, the frenzy is less likely! Until next time, here's the Round Pound in this morning's snow, and Trigger displaying his lack of neck...no wonder I went over his head that day. Keep warm!
