Taken in Michigan's Eastern Upper Peninsula on north shore of Lake Huron.  Water level in Lake Huron rose 2-3 feet the past year and small cedars that took hold on the rocky beach are now flooded.  Winter waves splashed the cedar branches on a very cold day, coating the branches with ice.  My wife selectively focused on a face she saw in the ice - seeming like a seal pup staring at you.  I saw it immediately. It probably won't be seen by all.

Interesting colors and abstract. I do see the face.

I see it as an abstract - a fine one. Nice selective focus on the fine lines in the ice.

Yes, a sweet pup with its head on one side, looking at us with those soulful eyes. :)    Very nicely done.

Immediately to the right of the head I also see a caricature of the head and long nose of Red Riding Hood's wolf..........  OK, I'll keep taking the tablets...

Giuliana is happy you appreciate her work.  She pointed the wolf out to me immediately, then I saw it.  No tablets necessary for a good imagination - the mother of invention, the beginning of creation, the end of boredom.

Thanks, Paul.  You both have imagination, artistic creativity and fine talent in spotting and capturing the natural world around you.  Your images are a pleasure to view.  I can honestly say I never get bored, and I am sure neither of you do!

It's fun to see these characters in ice- I see the seal, and wolf. The complex front part also looks a bit like a skeletal skull to me. It's also a very nice abstract.
