Icy Abstracts

We live in an older house – 85 years this year actually. It’s seen plenty of updates over the years, but there are still a great number of features that date back pretty far, including the windows in our upstairs.

The upstairs windows are wooden with single panes of glass. At some point, someone put steel framed permanent storm windows up to keep out the cold, but the poor seals around both the storms and the wooden windows allow a fair amount of condensation to build up in the colder weather – which then freezes on the storm window panes.

The other day I was in our oldest son’s room and noticed that the ice was forming into some really interesting patterns that looked stunning when the sun began to reflect off it. I spend about half an hour playing with this little scene and I think the results were really cool.
