The Dao of Ice

We've been traveling and settling in for an East Coast visit.  Tonight I barely made it outside for a quick walk in the backyard before the sun set.  I was drawn to the snowy banks of a small ice-covered stream.  We just don't get to see those wintery black-and-white scenes in Bodega Bay!

Not too many photo opportunities today, but here's a close-up of the ice:

I hope you enjoyed the winter solstice, and that you're able to find much peace and happiness and inspiration in the outdoors in the year to come!

P.S.  Eric thought the pattern in the ice resembled the yin-yang symbol, hence the title of this post.  I didn't see that until he mentioned it, but then it was fun to think about.  What else do you see in the ice?  Can you visualize how those patterns were formed?
