Pattern Recognition: Shapes in the Snow

IMG_2093snowHillocks580There are still some things about water I do not understand. I see puzzles in the creek ice and in the shapes and textures and patterns of snowfall as it ages. 

There are some who have nightmares about ice. Like these people who had thousands of tons of ice shards move like a living thing to overwhelm their houses.

This is not a great picture since there is not really a subject for the eyes to rest on. But if I live long enough, I will have a pretty sizable gallery of unexplained patterns, forms and shapes in the natural world, each a puzzle unsolved–for now–and I’m okay with a certain amount of pleasant unknowing in my life.
