Bells for Christmas

What do “threes” mean to you?

These icicles were formed along Fall Creek during the coldest months of February in the Finger Lakes Region of New York State.

The transient nature of these forms is suggested by the thinness of the pedicle joining each bell to the ice lobe of the ledge. Note the golden crystals in the ice lobe.

This photograph is a visualization of the symbolic power of the numeral three, reflected on itself.  Question: what do “threes” mean to you?

Captured with the Sony DSLR-A700, DT 16-105mm F3.5-5.6 lens, hoya circular polarizing filter, mounted on the Manfrotto tripod with ball head.

  1. This image is visual poetry at its best! I’m not fully versed on numerology by any means, but I am participating in a group looking toward 2019 as a “3” year (2+0+1+9=12 & reduces to 3) – I receive your poetic image & question as synchronicity nudging: pay attention to 3. Thank you! I shall visualize 2019 “ringing in” with these ice bells.

  2. Absolutely stunning photograph. You have such a good eye for capturing nature. I cannot stop looking at these ‘bells’. I have never thought much about the number three but now that you mention it, I have three children, I got married when I was 33 and I am approaching my 30th wedding anniversary. Maybe there is more to three’s than I thought!
