Leaf and stream ice

At last, a cold morning:


The oak leaf is under the ice, and covered in small bubbles that are hard to see. The winding dark path is the detail that made me stop and set up my camera. It wasn’t that cold – just 15 degrees or so.

    • The bubble over the stem makes it look like it’s going in and out of the ice. Almost all of the leaf is under the ice with the exception of the tip of the stem. It’s hard to tell until you look closely at the full resolution image.
      I think the leaf was initially in water, and a thin layer of ice froze over it. Thanks…
