This is a macro shot from a piece of an ice block. It kind of look like a part of a face with eyes of some kind of an ice creature :-)

I thought it was really cool and became fascinated of how nature can create sculptures like this :-)

Now ... THAT's a picture I can get into.  Fantastic focal point on the bright spot.

Cool!  (literally).    My wife and I like to look for faces or other shapes in photos.  For example the paper place mats at some restaurants have pictures of their food...


but one wonders... did you see that face before you took the picture, or only after...  In which case why did you take a shot straight down?
