Two for the Price of One
Have you ever heard of glass artist Dale Chihuly? He does some really amazing glass sculptures. This is one of his pieces. I have always loved glass, and some of Mr. Chihuly's make you think of seaweed, and other colorful and twisted undersea creations. But, when I looked out the window this afternoon, the icicles sort of reminded me of one of Mr. Chihuly's art pieces.
This isn't glass, but an icicle sculpted by the sun and the Man Upstairs. It's almost like crystal. and I was just amazed to see how part of it was clear and other sections were frosted.
And here's another shot of the front of the house. With these beautiful ice sculptures, who needs icicle lights? And how exactly did I capture these pieces of art? Well, I put up the window, put up the screen and then stuck my little ol' head out the window and snapped the photos. Hey, it's cold out there, and I wasn't about to go out to take pictures. One thing these last few snowstorms have done is to make me appreciate even more the beauty you can find in nature if you just take time to look.
