Wooden magic

Yesterday's rain saturated everything, including my deck.
This morning I found frost pictures.

I took them all horizontally, and meant to show them horizontally.
But the same image on end is even better.




Potbellied sea horse.




An hibiscus.



A dancer.

  



A butterfly dance. Either way.

What do you see.

  7. I saw most of them differently than you did but the butterflies I agree. This was as much fun as finding things in clouds.

  9. In the second from last, I see a dragon with its mouth open, looking scary :)

    These are unique and intriguing. I don't remember ever seeing frost on wood like this.

  23. Oh these pictures are lovely, Joanne! And seeing "forms" in other things (like a floor, or wood, or coffee) - there is a name for it, but even Google couldn't help me to remember it.

    1. I found "pareidolia" and "apophenia", neither of which are the word we're thinking of, though apophenia is easier to wrap my lips around.

  24. These are so cool, Joanne! In the first set, I see a creature that Dr. Seuss probably wrote about. Or CS Lewis. A Jabberwocken Snoopaloopugus, I'll call it. In the second set, I see a woman on a sleigh. In the third set I also see a dancer. In the last set I see birds and a bird angel.

  25. Internet here is the pits... it's catch as catch can. But today I caught your beautiful ice etchings... Mother Nature is the most talented artist of all, isn't she?

  26. My, these are really beautiful. I love them. I could frame them just as they are if my room was cold enough :) otherwise I'd love prints.
