Well, I think that title leaves little to wonder about what the subject is.
I must be going soft. I mean besides my mid-section. It was 2°F this morning (snow tonight and tomorrow morning, then come the 30 mph winds and sub-zero wind chills) and I decided to stay in. Slept a little later, did a little wood hauling from the garage to the basement and then a little shopping. Filled the garage with more wood in advance of the coming snow and am now deciding what images to enter into a contest. When I entered this contest last year, the image from the other day of the hoar frost/green ice crashed and burned along with another ice abstract, but the lotus leaf closeup did alright. What to do this year? Probably no abstracts. Any suggestions?
Returning to the subject of this post, openings in the ice like this can sometimes be pretty attractive. This makes me think of a snow-covered pine tree, kind of what’s left after a cookie-cutter does its thing.
There is just a hint at the mid-left of the underneath intricacies of a sheet of ice like this. Several years ago I was able to get a shot of some of the icicles hanging below an ice shelf on Atherton Brook in the Quabbin.
