Saplings Veil, Bitterroot River, Hamilton, Montana
"Each night the temperature dips. Frost catches and controls the flooding until the next day. But during last night's darkness the level of the river dropped dramatically, leaving the saplings along its banks collared with lacy scallops of ice, with the black water churning away two feet below."
By Luci Shaw, from "Breath for the Bones: Art, Imagination and Spirit: A Reflection on Creativity and Faith", p. 126
