Frozen Bird Bath

15 Dec

ADVENT DAY FIFTEEN: Christmas. It’s not long away. And to celebrate advent, new content will be added to this blog every day in the countdown to the big day. You’ll see reviews, opinion pieces, links to some of my other work, videos – maybe even a short story! Remember to check back every day (in between the mad rush of packing presents, getting the freezer stocked up and watching Home Alone on repeat).

Bird Bath

These photos were taken last week, after a few days of literally freezing weather. A chilly night left a disk of ice, which then cracked. Bubbles of water from underneath the ice conglomerated around the bottom the cracks, helped along by some grains of salt that burnt through the ice in cylinders.

The effect, after another cold night, is – as you can see – stunning and really quite incredible.
