I overwinter our unheated bird baths by covering them in black plastic. Water can still collect, but since there is some air between the plastic and the stone (or ceramic), the subsequent expansion-as-it-freezes doesn’t crack the bowl. 

And, yes, I learned that gem the hard way. 🙂  

Frozen Still

“Frozen Still” (Leaves Frozen in Ice) Nikon D300, 70mm, F/8, 1/30s, -1.0EV, ISO 640

In the back of my mind I’d always hoped to capture something just like this shot but could never have dreamt of finding it laid out so perfectly!


  1. This is so beautiful, but still without comments…I´m going to do something about that!

    • Thank you, Birgitte! I actually really like this image too…never understood why it didn’t receive much attention. It is happy now that someone took notice! 🙂
