I found these “ice ornaments” on a Southwest Michigan creek today. They formed from an overhanging ice sheet above the cold flowing waters. Beauty is all around us if we take the time to look :)

A lone photographer prepares his equipment under the shelter of a structure on the end of a pier in Holland, Michigan as the sun was low in the sky.
