01.07.2019 Frozen Puddle Abstract

It finally got real cold last night.  12 degrees. We’ve had a few cold nights, but this was the first I was able to get out in.  As I drove down a favorite dirt road, I noticed some nice patterns in a mud puddle.  It turned out that I didn’t care for the muddy section, but there were mud-free zones.

Here’s the first…

I may convert to black and white at some point, but for now it was cold and the blue gets the message across.  🙂

  1. This has more dark, and more prominent dark, in it that I expect from a picture of ice. I’d keep the cold blue rather than convert to neutral black and white.

    Amazing colour and detail. Looks as though it’s something in outer space rather than just outdoors.

    Hooray! So glad you finally have some ice. This is a wonderful abstract. I love the shapes, lines, and textures.

    Such a variety of shapes and textures, and so many shades of blue. I’ve always associated the color blue with cold, probably because I grew up hearing expressions like, “He turned blue with the cold.” Then I got to Alaska and discovered that glaciers can contain as much blue ice as white. Black and white certainly can communicate the starkness of winter, but I think the blue really works here.

    • As I mentioned in response to your comment on the blue leaves, it would be easy enough to reduce the blue but I like the effect and expression of cold. Again with this, there was a blue sky above which I am sure played a part in the color scheme. As I’ve mentioned before, I experience Raynaud’s Syndrome (or disease) and my fingers do on occasion have a bit of a blue tint to them.

    Cold is right! I don’t typically anthropomorphize, but I keep seeing extraterrestrial beings here. Sorry ! 😉
