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.

I’ve been working on the cosmic ice and cosmic cement series for a few years in digital format but I had been photographing them even in my film days.  Doing these series makes me think about how little my personal photographic style has changed over the years.  These photos come very natural to me so I think if you want to change you have to make a conscious effort to do so.  This new series represents the merging of the existing two series.
