"Inner Workings" - Ice patterns, Mason Neck State Park, Virginia

It's weird, spring is finally arriving but still I'm digging back through some images captured this winter. It seemed wrong to let them sit there on my hard drive unused and unloved. The following was taken after a very long and deep freeze (by Virginia standards). I loved the way these bubbles took on unique shapes and how they formed both above and under the beech leaf. The image reminds me of some sort of inner mechanics of a watch or something. I'll be out in the field later today to search for some flowers to photograph ... perhaps you all will get to see them soon!
