Broken Ice Art

Small sections of broken ice in the Asian Patio Garden, when looked at closely, reveal interesting “art”.  A few moments spent looking down can take your breath away at the details, lines, forms, the natural art found underfoot while crossing the gravel patio.

Here are a few recent photos of the final days of Winter as seen in miniature ice sculptures in the Gardens at Waters East.

Enjoy the beauty of the small and the ordinary.

Here is one last photo for today.  Looking sixty feet down over the bluff onto StoneWater Beach on the shores of the Gardens at Waters East, even there along the shore, is a great "art" pattern in ice and water.

NOTE:   All photos use in this posting were taken on the property of Gardens at Waters East
unless otherwise marked.
NOTE:   Since this Blog is meant to be an accurate journal of the gardens;
no photos are “staged”, “arranged”, or ”photo-shopped” in anyway.
What is posted – is what it here.  It is what it is.

  1. Beautiful ice art! I agree with you with using not photoshopped photoes. They are "faked"

  2. How refreshing! The ice shapes are fascinating. For some reason, they've caught my eye more this winter, too. I guess we've had more freeze/thaw activity, which has created more winter "art."

  3. Last ice, last days of winter!
    Nice photos!

  4. I love the ice art, reminds me of stained glass. I wish I could capture the beauty you have photographed here. Our snow is starting to melt a little and in a way, I'm sorry to see it go. There is truly beauty in all of the seasons and you have captured the essence of late winter here.
