I - Ice

Yesterday we had record-breaking temperatures - it reached 9°C (48°F) - warmer than it was in Florida (44°F in the morning). We have little snow left, but there is still quite a bit of ice in places. Today, I decided to share photos of ice crystals that I photographed on the side of a snow bank a couple of years ago.

I was shooting from below and looking up towards the top of the snowbank. Later, I increased the contrast to emphasize the shapes of the crystals. The third image is a closer view of the second. If you look closely, you will be able to identify the crystals in the original.

Believe it or not, these images have not been converted to b&w. I liked the way light filtered through the ice crystals and how dark everything else looked.

I have additional photos of Ice at:
