Winter Lace

There are always interesting patterns in the foam that forms in the still backwater below the series of small falls at Emmon’s Preserve in Kennebunkport, but on this day, when it was well below freezing and only the motion of the water kept it liquid, the foam itself was half frozen and particularly lace-like. This shot contrasts the intricate patterns in white with the equally intricate patterns in the green moss. It was cropped at bit at the top for composition.

Sony DSC H50 at 31mm equivalent. F3.2 @ 1/60th @ ISO 100. Programmed auto.

Blackpoint to the right in Lightroom. Added Clarity and Vibrance, and a touch of Fill Light for the moss. Sharpen Landscapes preset.

And, for contrast, a close-up of the foam. Purely abstract. Taken from the same spot by zooming in to about 200mm equivalent for framing.
