  4. Fortunately your weather’s freeze has resulted in anything but a freeze in pictures.

  5. Nice Steve! Really like your ice images! Reminds me of ice images I used to do with friends years ago. We would meet on Sundays at a local nature area and photograph what we could find that was interesting. Winter months were more ice images than Wildlife.

    Wonderful photograph! Love the way all the lines radiate out from the leaf…it’s the centre of everything. πŸ™‚

    The symmetry of the lines radiating out from the leaf are wonderful. I especially like the way the water/ice covers the leaf’s edges. It’s much more interesting than a simple fallen leaf.

    • I agree about the leaf being held by the ice. It has a look of permanence that really wasn’t the case. I’m sure a few hours later the leaf floated away. There were a number of
      possibilities for similar shots as almost everything the had been trapped in the ice had some lines forming around it. Depending on the light’s angle some were quite pronounced.

  9. Great find and capture. Very dynamic with all those bursting lines.

    Wow, stunning, Steve! Your ice photos do make me jealous. The way the leaf is partly in and partly out is lovely. I know I wouldn’t do half as well as you do with ice photos, if I had the chance. Yesterday we had a little cold snap, with night temps just below freezing and a cold wind all day, keeping day temps in the low 40s. Joe and I went for a walk around a big beaver pond and wetland. There was very thin ice in a few places so I tried to photograph it, but the results are far short of what I’d like. I will say there wasn’t much to work with. πŸ˜‰ On the plus side though, the swamp is full of brilliant yellow skunk cabbage (the western version is bright yellow). In one place it was stuck in the ice – very cool to see. πŸ™‚

    • I hope that you are saying that because of the cold because I am sure you could make great ice images if you had the opportunity, Lynn. Oooh. Yellow skunk cabbage. I hope we get to see some of them in one of your walk posts. Thank you for your kind words, my friend.

        Actually, I have some nice yellow skunk cabbage photos coming up! And maybe with better ice I’d make better images, but I’m sure it would take months and months to get ice photos to the fine point that you have taken them to.

      • Practice makes better. πŸ™‚ I’ll be eagerly awaiting your skunk cabbages. Of course, that might make our greens a bit boring. πŸ™‚
