I took this photo on Friday of this week in Rock Creek Park in D.C. Inspired by Joe Ross’s wonderful winter picture on his blog header, I thought I’d take a walk in the sparse woods. Something caught my eye down in the creek. Stunning. I drive the same route on Broad Branch Road through the Park every Friday morning and pass this spot each time. I’ve never seen this object before. Maybe the frozen white creek water made it stand out. But I’m pretty sure it wasn’t there last Friday.
Apparently, someone has been busy creating amid the long stark shadows of the maples and oaks. It’s either a winter hive made by stone bees or the little people from the Emerald Isle are practicing their corbeling to make a monastic hut. Blessings on the artist practicing creek art. I think there are some other random acts of art happening in the woods of Rock Creek. If you spot them, send me a photo.
