The view from the window: Ice crystals

Ice crystals on an aircraft window

Do you ever wonder what the purpose is of that small hole in an aircraft window?

The fragile beauty of these drops of frozen water was quite captivating. There wasn’t a lot of room to manoeuvre in my seat, so focusing on the ice crystals was a challenge.

I took these photos for Leanne Cole’s 3 June Monochrome Madness with the theme of water. I intended to post them then, but I was on holiday at the time and I forgot. I was reminded of them when I saw this week’s Monochrome Madness post. Oh well, better late than never!

(Leanne’s next theme is “things beginning with K” — I’m working on kiwifuit, or maybe kalamata olives; check back next week to find out which.)

(Apologies to Vanilla Ice for nicking the name of his song for my post’s title. I’m certainly not a hip hop fan, but I do like “Under Pressure” by Queen and David Bowie, which features in “Ice ice baby”.)
