Of Ice and Ink

Cold nights + Sunny days = Fabulous natural ice sculptures.

I came upon this fabulous wall of ice while out driving on an errand yesterday. These photos aren't the best because I only had my phone with me, not my camera. I wish I could have captured the colour of the ice better.

The furthest ice chunk, on the left in both photos, was a beautiful shade of peacock blue.

The blue ice immediately reminded me of my favourite shade of Sheaffer ink: Peacock blue. I put that ink in the fountain pen I always used in high school. I wrote many an essay and short story in that ink.

Let's see:  I would've rather been writing than out driving, do ya think?

If you had been home writing, you wouldn't have been able to take these photos and share them with us! They are awesome!

Thanks Rebecca and Kelly. It's great to hear you enjoyed the photos,and nice to know my required keyboard break wasn't entirely unproductive. :>

I very fondly remember Peacock Blue ink and fountain pens. I had quite a smashing red fountain pen, I remember, but I don't think I ever had Peacock Blue ink. My loss! I was quite jealous of the other girls in my class who had it!
