Sea of Silk

Since nowadays there’s hardly any snow in winter where I live, I was pretty excited about the white view out of the window that particular morning. So I quickly grabbed my stuff and went out. But as soon as I left the house it started raining and I was quite disappointed, because the snow was melting very quickly in the rain, of course. But finally I decided to go to the wetlands nevertheless and in the end I found these mesmerizing ice formations, created by a soft layer of ice/snow, which was folded like a towel of silk in absolutely amazing shapes, I’ve never seen before. The wet and rather warm conditions made this piece of magic happen, and again I was happy to be out there to witness something special and unexpected.
