The Flowers in Ice Explorations Continue

Digital original, 2 frame stitch
After my early successes with flowers frozen in ice, I decided to continue my explorations - this time freezing some small carnations and freesias. One of the blocks of ice was unusable - a solid mass of bubbled, but the others had enough clear areas to permit me to photograph.

The freesias, being smaller than the carnations, were quite different to photograph - their varied colours and more delicate petals produced a very different look in the ice

By far the best block of ice was one with a purple carnation within. All the edges of the petals were lined with bubbles, making for a very mysterious, and magical result.
