Rockicle's

 

I'm not much of a bird watcher but my wife is, so yesterday I went with her to the Oost Vaarders Plassen.

This is a nature reserve with wet and dry land near by the Markermeer. There are always a lot of birds!

 

But it was freezing and I was watching an episode of Weeds on my new iPhone 4 (YAY!) in the car,

while she was photographing a pair of Great Crested Grebe doing there courtship display.

 

When I looked up, these rocks next to the water were shining in the faint sunlight.

So I thought... this could be the shot for tomorrow!

When I walked over there I saw it was shining because of the ice that formed on top... and this rock was covered in icicles!

 

So I got a wet knee and camera strap, but it was SO worth it!

 

I think this is so beautiful, and it was the first time I ever saw something like this!
