Old Man Winter: A Portrait

I love AHA! experiences. I had one this morning, driving to town, catching glimpses now and then of the forms that ice can take along the creek. In a flash of 'insight' (I love that word) I recollected a black and white picture I took at least 25 years ago, that I called "Old Man Winter".

Ice shapes are much like cloud shapes, in that one can see all manner of creatures in curve and shadow, in opaque and crystal. Take a look at Old Man Winter. I have put him in his proper place, along with the piece I wrote a week or so ago, called Winter Wind.

Can you see the blustery old curmudgeon of January? Or do you see some other form there that I have missed? Please share your cloud-visions.
