Icicle sketches

I confess that only in the last few days have I appreciated the fascinating texture of icicles.  They have previously been cumulative fingers of frozen drips of water.  Glassy and attractive  –  end of story.  But not any more.  My discovery encouraged me to assemble a collection of icicle ‘sketches’  –  photos chosen to reveal the texture.  Look closely at some of the ‘totem pole’ images.
