12.26..2019 Finishing up…maybe

I think I’ve now shared the images that best represent the shoot from last Friday.  This last one is the entire formation of the one I posted yesterday featuring the globular ice build up.  Linda mentioned the tubular shaped icicles and today emphasizes them along with the rounder forms and still a bit of the soft flow with a nice splash at the bottom.

Please click the image for a larger, brighter, and crisper view.

As much as I enjoy icicles and flowing water, I am hoping to find some more abstract patterns to share.  The last few days, with their “warmer” temperatures, may have provided some thaw and refreeze creations…or not.  🙂

    Oh I very much admire this Steve! The variations in the ice are fascinating, and also the aspect of the frozen vs the fast. Awesome.

    We’ve been hovering near 60 here! Everyone is out in shorts. Not me, I think that is overstating things a bit.
    You are a master of capturing the different textures of ice, getting me to see so much more than I would otherwise.

  5. This time it was “the soft flow with a nice splash at the bottom” that drew my attention. In the pareidolia department, I kind of see the ice as a shaggy bison.

    Love the contrast between the ice and the movement of the water – but also grateful that it doesn’t get so cold here!

    The globs, the tubes, and the pretty flow are great, but I really like the fourth element in this one: the wave-like forms at the bottom. They’re as delicate as the flow at the right, but they somehow seem even more dynamic; looking at them makes me feel as though I’m on the ocean.

    • That splash was not my primary goal when composing this although I did want it to be part of the image. Once processing I decided to do some adjustments so it would stand out and, I think, complete the picture. I am glad that you enjoy that part also.

  8. Water is artistic year-round, but it seems to be at its best in winter, Steve. If you took daily photos of this creation, it would never look the same two days in a row.
