Icy Ruffles

I dream of  going to Yellowstone to see the waters swirl 
around the icy rocks, the steam from the river melting
the ice to create sculptures of the currents.
In lieu of that, I found this little bit of scalloped ice
decorating the frosty leaves like a fungus from the forest.

And here, the water moves around the rocks in the creek bed,
it's lace and ruffles undulating, emulating themselves as 
they begin their dance towards the ocean, 
thousands of miles away.

And here, Eric Clapton joins Joe Bonamassa onstage 
at Royal Albert Hall to perform "Further on Up the Road," 
the notes swirling and undulating from their guitars. 
Bonamassa is scheduled to appear at the Murat Theater
next May. Tickets are priced at approximately $150 $95.
I may as well start saving my pennies now.

That looks sooo cold, Speedway.
Beautiful, though.
The top photo looks like a dessert from a very expensive restaurant.

A hundred and fifty dollars for a gig ticket? The world has gone mad. I remember seeing him on tour for eight pounds.

G'morning, Dive. Thank you for your nice words.

When I checked the website the other nite, the prices ranged from about $125 to $270 but looking this morning, the tickets are $49 to $79 + an $18.50 "processing fee." Still bad, but not what was shown earlier.
Will still need to save, but it won't take as long.

I love the ice photo and the swirling waters of the second. Your segue into music pleases me on many levels. You always have a nice combination of photos and prose.
