These photos were taken on a day where the temperature was 17° (F) but clear and sunny. They were taken in the morning and the promise of above freezing temperatures was being predicted. After I took the shots it was a while before I had a chance to see what they looked like on the monitor and by that time it was 35° and most of the ice was gone. There seems to be a short window to photograph thin ice before it gets too cloudy or, in this case, covered in 6 inches of snow.
They remind me of geodes.
Thanks, Ash. They do look a bit like geodes close up. Yeah.
More snow. You must be getting sick of it. Nice series, though…
Thanks, John. We have an additional 14 inches since I shot these.
That’s been my experience. When I shoot ice macros I can sometime watch my subject dissolve as I try to focus on it.
Nice shots. Did you shoot any closer macros of the edges?
Thanks, Emilio. I wanted to get closer so I went inside to get the extension tubes, got distracted a an hour or so and when I returned this was all melted. ADHD.
I love them. 🙂
These are great, there’s so much details in them. Love it !
Super abstracts! I like them a lot.
Thanks, Meander. They do look a bit abstract, don’t they?
Nice and crackled as old paints. I like it very much!
