One of my favorite subjects to photograph in the winter is abstract ice patterns. However, this winter we have had an over abundance of snow and this has covered most of the best spots for me to find the right kind of ice. A few days ago I went to see if anything had changed and was pleasantly surprised to find bare ledge rock and pockets of ice. What makes these ice pockets unique is how the water freezes in layers, thus creating random patterns that vary from spot to spot. No two are ever the same.
I process first in Adobe Lightroom, then export to Silver Efex Pro 2 for the final version.
