Frozen Microscopic Artworks

I love it when I stumble upon fun things that catch my eye.  This happened last week in Calgary’s River Park when I was walking Rossi (the dog) one morning and discovered the water from the melting snow had frozen in shallow puddles to create amazing frozen artworks.

As a former biologist (a long, long time ago) they immediately reminded me of some of the images I had seen under the microscope and those taken by electron microscopes.  The more I looked at them, the more intrigued I became.  

Over the next few days, I eagerly wandered the park each morning looking for new frozen microscopic artworks. 

I hope you enjoy them as much as I do….

Last Word

Instead of summary statement, I decided to make a movie from the still images.  I think it adds another dimension to these mysterious images. Let me know what you think.
