These final three images conclude this fall’s ice out of season multi-post. Hopefully, the early ice this year has also concluded. At least until winter actually, technically comes.

This kind of ice shared space and time with the kinds in the previous posts. In its way just as delicately showy. Only in a different presentation.

Snow? Sleet? Not sure.

But always beautiful.

These look as if nature made a loaf of ice and framed it with twigs and leafy branches. Oddly, in actuality, it seems to be what’s left after the rest of the ground cover melted away.

It’s always fascinating to see how nature plays out the simplest of its small dramas. In or out of season.
