the Foot of an Ice Creature #1

Here's a closeup of a patch of ice. I don't know what else to say about it because I don't understand ice anyway.

Interesting play on texture. I do get an unnatural desire to turn my head sideways like this should have been presented in landscape. But that could just be me.

On a side note... anyone else see "Alf" in this image? :lol:

Thanks Duck. It’s not you - it was shot landscape, and I was rotating my head :D so I turned it. So I think that proves it’s me that’s weird! I didn’t see ol’ Alf til you brought him up!

Thanks Piet, I may have to try Deep Dream on it!

I didn't know who Alf was so I had to Google him. I see him now. Also see the Phantom of the Opera.
Hope you weren't walking on that ice, Minnie. I don't think it's been that cold down there.
Next time you are there, though, toss a stone on the ice so it slides and listen to the ice sing.

No, it's not thick enough to walk on, so I just edge around it, or shoot it from the bridges. I didn't know about the singing, will have to try it if this lasts another day. Today was the day it started to warm up. Next week it's supposed to be 70. Go figure!

I'm afraid I have to rotate it 90 degrees to the left, lol. But I love the patterns you captured. I also like the processing very much. A shame your winter will be over by next week!

It’s “as shot” rotation would be the opposite but it doesn’t matter because it was shot straight down. All that matter is what way looks best, and your rotation may be the better one!

I'm seeing cephalopods these days. Last week it was octopedes; this week it's squid. Duck saw Alf, I see squid. More than one, actually, a giant squid, and bait. Then a spinal column or maybe something something. Ish. I think seeing the crystal patterns in the ice is cool all by itself! You probably don't see much ice. I lived with the stuff for 22+ years and never bothered to look and really see! (Did you know you have squid in your pond...?)

(I prefer to present pictures in albums because I can put them in specific order.)

All the great photographers use cameras! No, really. :|
