So...every now and then you try some experimental photography shots and, when you sit down and print them up...read "download them to your computer" you get a serious surprise. That is what happened to me today. This morning I was at the river looking at some really wonderful ice crystals that had formed in the flowing water overnight and decided that they were waaaaay to cool not to photograph. Pardon the pun....
It turns out that the resulting photos are kind of funky....at least, I think they are!
And, yes these are ice crystals in the river. The photos were taken about an hour after sunrise but somehow the crystals bent and refracted the light into some truly spectacular images. No artificial light in these shots...promise!
Crazy reflection right?? Not so much. Just an aberrant collection of ice crystals. I guess when flowing water freezes it really does defy the rules...well, at least the rules that I know!
River rocks through the ice
So delightfully colourful....somehow much more colourful than it was in real life!
Truth in advertising. This is the only shot I snapped that was not a close up. The ice crystals in the other pictures are from the new ice along the river's edge. Hard to see in this shot, but there nevertheless.
I love it when weird and wacky also turns out to be wonderful! Oh, and yes, I know that the last blog was an expose on how spring really is here...and now this one is about ice. In my defense, this glistening, light-bending ice collection was gone by about 11:00...Who knows what we'll see next week!
