It’s late summer up here in the Northern Hemisphere and some folks have reached the point at which the novelty of hot weather has worn off and they’ve all but forgotten what it feels like to shiver. If that sounds like you, please allow the Department of Awesome Natural Phenomena to distract you for just a moment with this amazing photo taken by Redditor SearonTrejorek.
A couple winters ago in South Carolina, at the Hardin Gardens on the Winthrop University canvas, SearonTrejorek (after a few unsuccessful tries) managed to peel a perfect layer of ice off a leaf of a Magnolia tree. The flawless ice leaf was very fragile and quick to melt, but he was able to hold it in his hand long enough to capture its existence in this refreshingly chilly photo.

My goal is to experience the depths of life, to understand people and how they live, and to express this through my art. All my other accomplishments mean nothing to me. If I can only create a masterpiece that achieves the goal I’ve fixed my inward gaze upon during my creative journey, my life will not have been wasted.
