Frozen ice balls on dead weeds (Mullein) from slight wave action as the lake level slowly dropped. Mullein don’t grow in standing water; the lake was lower when they grew in this spot. Then last year was an excellent water year from the snowpack of the mountains above, and late summer rains, and the lake level rose.
Then, several mornings later, the gently undulating mirror surface reflected the blue sky and the weed stalks.
Like half realist, half surrealist paintings.
