Nature's Ice Sculpture

After a week off swimming, I returned to practice
Saturday morning. The weather, of course, was cold and
given the sometimes erratic bus schedules,
I did not want to risk frostbite waiting for one at night.

After practice, I went over to Eskenazi Health
to catch the bus for home. There I could go inside
the lobby to enjoy the beautiful artwork,
or go outside to enjoy the water features.

Here, the falls created from stacked blocks 
of limestone created sculptures of their own.
From lovely ruffled edges around the cattails, to
lacy drapes over the flowing water,
the stone and the cold weather
bend the water into vignettes 
of ever-changing beauty.

It's beautiful, what water does when it freezes. That first shot is amazing!
