It has been a cold spell here in Norway for several weeks now, below -15ºC, (5ºF). My second cousin Robert made this ice lantern by filling a balloon with water, which was left outside to freeze, he then carefully cracked a hole and emptied the core of water before it was frozen straight through. The sharp edges were rounded with hot water. I had fun playing with different light sources hitting the ice. The red reflection comes from a compact camera’s AF assist lamp.
Dawh, you're quite welcome. Tis always my pleasure to please, miss. I did indeed like it; it's quite lovely. Especially the balance created by the leaves. By the way, I dunno how long it's been on your page, but your name is really quite lovely. ^_^
