A Photo Gallery of Ice and Water

Frozen in Time: Pictures Ice and Water by Karen McDonald

One of the reasons I love being a naturalist is that I find beauty and wonder everywhere outdoors, from the smooth patterns of a salamander's skin to the bulging textures of dripping rain drops. I thought I'd change pace a bit and share with you photo gallery of ice and water, inspired by the beauty I found when taking a walk along a forested trail and returning by the road side. These are images from a melting frozen puddle. The ice cascaded colors and refracted light in such an amazing way. Be sure to look for the carefully choreographed reflections, you can see the forest and trees reflected in the pool of water. Hopefully this will inspire you to get outside and remember to look in places you may not have thought to look for beauty in nature. All Photos by the Author.

About Infinite Spider

My name is Karen and I am currently the Education Program Coordinator at the Smithsonian Environmental Research Center, working with students K-gray and doing outdoor science education based on Smithsonian research. I have also been a curriculum developer for the Smithsonian Science Education Center and a contract curriculum writer for the Discovery Channel. In my spare time I love to explore nature topics that I want to know more about, which has lead me to blogging here on "The Infinite Spider" (Infinitespider.com). I've designed it to be a science and nature blog for every-day people, naturalists, and outdoor educators. Currently I live in Annapolis, MD. If you have questions you can reach me at greathornedowl76@gmail.com. Let me know if you enjoy the blog or if you would like to see a particular topic covered. Thanks for reading!
