These are the last of my ice series photos. I went minimalist for the first image, and embraced chaos for the second.
Our current cold snap (cold, that is, for the Pacific Northwest) is supposed to last through the week, and then it’s back to the usual mild temperatures and rain. I have to say I’ll miss our wintry weather.
More ice abstracts, this time from a low-lying wetland area. The crack in the older top layer of ice reveals the freshly frozen water and plant material beneath.
I made my way down to the lake this morning to see if I could find anything interesting in its frozen surface. Maybe it’s because we don’t get a lot of ice around here, but I thought the patterns and trapped weeds were fascinating.
Pender Island winters are mild, and snow is rare, but we do get a few cold days every year. Below freezing temperatures the past couple of nights have resulted in some nice frosty mornings. I took my macro lens out early and took this shot of a frozen patch of moss before the sun melted all the ice crystals away.
