Here I am back with my icy series:

I dared to walk along the Lake Léman, Geneva in spite of very cold temperatures and a wind called bise *)!! After a while my fingers were nearly frozen and my eyes begun to be in tears !! For these reasons I had to stop and go home...........but I returned again four times !!

Fortunately, in the meantime we have had some warm days with about 14° / 17° !!

I am not returned to see what the sun made with those beautiful creations.....


I just hope your will not become bored with these pictures.........!!

Astonishing series of "ice sculptures", Ruth.
I'm glad you went out to photograph them and I didn't have to!
