The disappearing act

Going from solid to liquid.

Going…

Going…

Gone!

The transformation from one state to another reminds me that change can be beautiful.

    GORGEOUS shots!! It is amazing how quickly the ice is disappearing but what is strange is the little pond of water in front of our house still has ice on it, while the giant Mjøsa lake has become totally liquid again!!! Strange!!

  3. I’ve heard that in parts of Alaska, there are big parties to celebrate the first open water. Seems appropriate for a most welcome sign of impending spring.

    Great skies, too!
