01.30.2019 What got my attention to start

Chronologically I have been going backwards with the Harvard Pond images. I don’t know if this is the best of the bunch, but it is my favorite so I saved it for last.

  1. I initially saw this as if taken from up in the air looking down at a road diagonally crossing a winter landscape. The road might have been plowed, forming a long snowbank. I can see why this picture became your favorite from the session.

  2. Nature can make amazing patterns. Stay warm up there.

    There’s a lot of movement in this picture. It’s a little hypnotic – the sign of a good abstract.

  4. Wonderful! What intriguing patterns.
    If this was stone, I’d guess it was fossils called “orthoceras,” a kind of nautiloid

    It’s like the creator of patterns went all out that time…worked on a masterpiece….and left it for you to appreciate. Just gorgeous.

    What a wonderful, complex image. It’s like a collage of natural shapes. I see a couple of shells — a Turritella near the top (the small, spirally one) and an elongated Murex just to its left. There are cattails next to the Murex, and a long stalk of grass to its right, bisecting the image diagonally. I guess that would have been Steve’s road. Now that I look again, I see lichens next to the cattails, on the left. It’s stunning, what natural forces can produce.

    • I will have to look them up as I know little about shells. Now if I made my living at the edge of the water. But I do get to see ice’s intricacies each winter and appreciate the wonder that is nature’s chaos ( a favorite book by photographer Eliot Porter and James Gleick). It is also stunning what we can find if we only take the time to see.
