Freezing and Melting

It’s funny how‚various pho­tog­ra­phy tech­niques can resur­face at any moment depend­ing on what you are look­ing at.…Given the infi­nite vari­ety of things to see, it means that there is never a lack of sub­jects to photograph.

I guess this shot was inspired by the macro on the cheap pod­cast but it’s not a macro shot at all. It’s a sim­ple lower angled shot of some melt­ing ice but for some rea­son its shape intrigues me. When‚I first looked at it, it‚seemed like a mini model of some­thing larger. It was pho­tographed using the long end of my 70-200mm zoom. There was actu­ally water mov­ing through the ice that unfortunately‚I was unable to cap­ture because‚I needed a slower speed and it was too bright…and oh yeah, I for­got my fil­ters like a bone­head. Still, there’s some­thing here that pleases me.

    Hi Marko,
    At 1st glance I agree with Yves, thought it was your shadow.

    Too funny — didn’t even notice that Yves, but it’s not my shadow, it’s just a spot where melted water gath­ered. Besides, my shadow is so much cuter : )
    Thx — Marko

    Hey Marko, I like this shot too! The bot­tom right looks like it is your shadow though at 200mm this is highly unlikely!
