Etching in Ice

NVM00026-Edit-Edit

Once again I have gone in search of patterns in the ice along the lake shore.  Conditions have not be favorable this year for the kind of patterns I’ve found in past years, but I did manage to find a couple to play with.

Frosty Art

I decided to experiment with a couple of my frost images, first layering the two images, then masking out part of the background and finally adding color to parts of the image.  I may do more work with this technique in the future.

Burning Frost

Once again it’s time to go play in the attic.  My old windows have a talent for displaying amazing patterns of frost in the winter and I love taking my camera and macro lens up there to explore and photograph the resulting art.  After a bit of interpretation on my part, the patterns take on a different look than when they are on the glass.

Two Trees

Over there, off to one side, another tree.  Two trees, each watching the other, keeping the other company.  One obviously older, having seen more, able to share with the other knowledge of the past.  They both watch, as the man on the side of the road takes pictures before vanishing down the October Road.

One Tree

This one tree, standing alone, bare, receiving the morning sun on it’s bark and branches.  It catches the eye of a passing motorist who stops his journey on the October Road and captures a moment.

Beyond the Bog

There, beyond the crystal-like barrier, lies another reality.  A place of pine forests and broad leaf trees.  A place where one can walk on solid ground without fear of slipping silently in to the dark water.  Make it to the trees, there lies safety along the October Road.
