Ice Painting

Ice Painting

From earlier this winter. Out taking images after an ice storm, this pool of interestingly frozen water in among the trees caught my eye. I took several shots from various angles, but I like the close cropped tele shots best. They seem to capture the effect of the ice patterns best through contrast with the leaves. These are good examples of using the zoom on your camera for composition. From one spot, I took a whole series of images, from wide to various tele crops.

Sony DSC H50 at about 160mm equivalent. F4.0 @ 1/250th @ ISO 100. Programed Auto.

Just the most basic sharpening and Clarity and Vibrance in Lightroom.

The image is from the Winter Weather Gallery.
