My words, thoughts and photos from a Swedish perspective


They pose no danger as long as the temperature stays below the freezing point, but once the weather changes life on the streets becomes a hazardous game. I took the opportunity to take a couple of shots of icicles while it is safe. The best thing would have been if I had got some sunshine in them creating interesting reflections and effects but the sun is still too low and as efficient as a 25 W lightbulb so I will have to be patient for another couple of weeks.

In spite of the lack of light, there are still a couple of things one can do with shots of ice and, at least in my opinion, the possibilities are endless.

In the end, it’s all a matter of fantasy and one’s personal taste, isn’t it?

  6. They look so clear and crisp and cold. Like you could crush them up and use them in ice tea.

    Lynn: Thank you, but personally I think it’s more a matter of keeping up appearance than talent behind it. 😉

    Anna: Thanks. Ice can be very inspiring and is an interesting subject to explore.

    Preston: Yep, that’s how they look. Some are possible to crush up and use in ice tea, others are hard as stone and just as firm when they try to remove them.
