Several people asked me last week why I, in the first place, froze the flowers at all. Somehow because this is a hidden world most people never see. A pity as it is a very beautiful world.

The first 2 images are from 131026 when my cactus was full of flowers. Just a small cup filled with water and frozen with the flowers in it. The major problem is to get the flowers not to float! Today my major problem was to avoid the reflection from the window when i  put the ice in my bathtub.
Todays flowers I think is scilla and wood anemone.

The new images of the ice I shared last week are from today. They were frozen in a bowl for making pie. When you take the ice out you have to be fairly quick as it is melting rapidly. Especially when in the water. The ice cracks at the first contact with water. I´m not a painter, at least not yet,  but I think a good painter artstis could get inspired from this.

I made a quick GOOGLing on "frozen flowers exibition" and got a lot of gorgeous pieces of frozen art. It looks a bit like the flowers are enclosed in glass. Just they don´t last very long.

Hope you liked it

Frozen flowers

From this...

I was defrosting my frezer a week ago and found the flowers I put in for freezing in a glass container about a year ago and then forgot. Took the ice out and took some shots. They are still in the glass container and that one became frosted and added a texture to the ice. 


..... to "Deep freeze"

Using several editing softwares and filters and a lot of other stuff, I came up with "Deep Freeze"


Edit: I was asked why I froze the flowers in the first place. I have done it before with christmas cactus but this time it was a man, Bruce Boyd,  that froze the flowers and then cracked the ice that made me do it. You can see some of it HERE. I have not cracked my ice yet :)
