    …already? They are beautiful, though

    • Thank you, my friend! Yes, Corvallis, Oregon is in the throes of Winter already. Our first taste of snow brought an avalanche down onto our sleepy town. At least we didn’t get as cold as my home State of Montana where it was 50 below (with wind chill) this past weekend! Have a wonderful day, Anna 🙂
      BTW, I’m now following your blog. Keep up the excellent work, my friend!
      Cheers,
      Tyler 🙂

  2. I’m saying “like” because they are great photos but also because they’re over your way and nowhere near me!

    Beautiful icicles, Annie

    • Thank you kindly, Annie! I just looked out our bedroom window this morning and saw this beautiful specimen on display under our eves, an ice sculpture chiseled by the gravity of Winter 🙂 I hope you have a wonderful day, my friend!
      Cheers,
      Tyler

    love the play on words

  5. you are growing some serious cicles there my friend. we’re in single digits in rochester,ny…too cold for the icicles to grow, yet.

    • Ron, these icicles took me by surprise…they were right outside my bedroom window and I happened to see them out of the corner of my eye (hard to miss, right?). The instant I saw them, I knew I had to get my camera and rush outside into the cold. Good thing I did b/c the snow (and icicles) melted off yesterday. The ephemeral nature of ice art makes it so desirable to capture on film, preserved, forever frozen in time, inside my mind’s eye. I hope you have a wonderful weekend my friend. I’ll think warm thoughts for you and send them telepathically 🙂
      Cheers,
      Tyler

  6. Oh, wow! Those aren’t just icicles, they’re deadly weapons!! Winter has its beauty but I’m afraid I don’t miss the cold weather! 🙂

  7. I love icicles…..frozen moments in the life of water 🙂

    • I agree, my friend! Icicles are Nature’s ephemeral ice sculptures, stabbing their jagged bodies into my mind’s eye & imbed themselves forever into my psyche. It’s Nature’s way of armoring the eaves for Winter’s siege 😉 I hope you have a wonderful weekend!
      Cheers,
      Tyler 🙂

    • Thank you, my friend! The artful gravity of Winter on display under our eaves…what strange magic, beauty at a distance, danger up close, my camera capturing the icicles’ point-of-view 😉 I hope you have a wonderful tomorrow today!
      Cheers,
      Tyler 🙂

    Eavesdropping… 🙂 I call the two-pronged ones bi-cicles.

    • Thank you! These giant icicles caught me off-guard…my camera did a double, triple and quadruple take just to capture the dimensions of Nature’s dangerously beautiful ice art. My lens gradually gets closer and closer to the ice, going from a safe distance to up-close and personal. The last shot looking out at the trees from under the eaves frames the photo from the icicles’ point-of-view (pun intended). It’s Nature’s way of armoring the eaves for Winter’s siege 🙂 I hope you have a wonderful weekend!
      Cheers,
      Tyler 🙂

  9. The most literal eavesdroppers of all! 😀 Of course, I’d never once thought of it before. And beautiful photos of them, too.

    • Thank you kindly, Kathryn! I’m so glad you enjoyed my photos. I was trying to capture the icicles’ point-of-view (pun intended)! Have a wonderful weekend, my friend!
      Cheers,
      Tyler 🙂

  10. I love your icicle pictures! they’re great!

  11. Reblogged this on The ancient eavesdropper and commented:

    A re-blog of a wintery post on icicles. The other title I considered for this post was “Points of view,” though eavesdropping fit better for obvious reasons 😉 It’s snowing outside here in Corvallis, Oregon…9 inches yesterday and more on the way today! Have a wonderful Friday and weekend everyone…stay warm!

  12. Beautiful and I suppose potentially dangerous. Great post. 🙂

  13. Beautiful photos and I loved the title you chose.

    What a clever play on words.

  15. Oh my I think I might call those daggers of death! They are amazing though.

    • While they do appear dangerous and deadly, I think it’s all a matter of where you’re standing…beauty observed at a safe distance, as it were 😉 I agree. Patiently, Nature sculpts the artful gravity of Winter water. Have a peaceful Sunday, my friend!
      Cheers,
      Tyler 🙂
