Ice in the Hole

087

Temperatures drop.

Clear icy layer fills in;

Odd-looking  globules.

 

*******************

On my afternoon walk today, the wind felt quite brisk.  I had dressed warmly enough and was thankful for the sunshine, too.

The farmers have prepared all the crop fields for their winter’s rest.  So many trees stand bare.   Waiting.  Anticipation.  They will sport the glistening icicles, whilst the conifers get to wear the white dresses.

The road was dry and clear, and I almost missed this frozen indentation.  As soon as I saw it and how it formed so strangely, I wanted to share this discovery.  It was the only spot on this road that retained some water . Right up to the edges of the hole and,  even with its unusual layers and bits, was still strong enough to withstand the warmth from today’s sunshine.

I also like how the one leaf is caught up in the ice embrace.

And this is a broader view of the road and where the hole was found.
