The Ice Queens Magic

As I am getting older, my tolerance levels of being cold have dropped to pretty much zero. I no longer enjoy playing the snowballs or making snowmen as I did when I was small. Instead when it snows, this cheery disposition of mine is quickly replaced by a cautious person who has with age developed a greater awareness of the posing dangers that come with cold weather and snow such as: slips on pavements, dagger like icicles, scraping ice of the cars windscreen and slippery roads. However, I cannot deny its magical morphic abilities and marvel at its beauty. I am sure you will agree that ice, snow is so fascinating. So I hope you won’t mind me sharing some images that have kept me upbeat and made me smile at life over the past couple of months.

If all this ice has given you the shivers, below is something to warm you up.


  1. Lovely photographs there, I must admit I love watching snow but only from the inside of a nice warm house :-)

  2. Beautiful - and I am the same as you - I guess it is because we know how much it hurts if we fall over!

  3. Me too Scented Sweetpeas. Love the snowflakes from inside the house though :D
    Have a good weekend!

    Thanks Lottie.
    So true. Many a sore bottom in my time. I am sure many more sore bottoms to come too. This is only the beginning :D

    Have a wonderful weekend.

  4. I love the icerose, icicles, frozen cobwebs, icy fence, ice slates and ice clusters (actually these I love the most, as I have never seen anything like this).

  5. Snow and ice are deffinately amazing. Such lovely chilling photos!

  6. The pictures are beautiful!

    I am rather pleased that the sunshine is (shyly) coming back though!

  7. The ice berry photo is amazing. All the photos are very pretty--though I know they are cold. :)

  9. Kella I too was fascinated by the clusters. Absolutely incredible!
