The ice formed in rings around rocks in the creek.
See the ice bead at the end of the twig at the lower left corner? It sparkled through the window like a giant diamond or a blown glass rod.
Some globes of ice acted as magnifying glasses in the leaf litter, or formed fabulous ruffles.
Mentally I spent part of my day in a cave. The better part was spent pondering geologic formations and this most common rock.
