Other interpretations welcomed.
These were tricky to capture. I like to be directly above these as subjects to more easily capture all the detail in a flat plane. But the ice had melted and refrozen with an air layer between the two, or three, levels and that made for a very thin upper crust. I had to have the tripod straddle just right or it would have broken the ice which did happen accidentally after I was finished.
I really liked the way these fit together. It would have been so fascinating to see them develop.
I am not sure about all those fine lines at the bottom. They weren’t cracks made by me but might have happened and refroze as for the time I shot these nothing changed until I was done when I tried for another composition.
We are much warmer for the rest of the week but a few nights at the end will be fairly cold. More ice to come, I hope. If it stays warm than more ice will become a morass.
