Salt Ice on the Salt Marsh

Last Pic of the Day for 2009! Parson’s Beach, Kennebunk ME. We had a cold snap night before last: 2 degrees, climbing to about 25 at the high yesterday. Cold enough to freeze salt water, or at least turn it into rime. Cold enough to freeze a thin layer of rime over the marsh grasses as the tide fell.  We also had a flood tide, so areas of the marsh that are rarely wet were under water. The combination created some interesting effects.

I took many shots of the patterns formed by the grass and ice, and then a few like this one, from ground level looking across the frozen marsh.

Sony DSC H50 at 31mm equivalent and macro. F5.6 @ 1/640th @ ISO 100. Programmed auto.

Blackpoint to the right in Lightroom. Added Clarity and Vibrance. Sharpen Landscape preset.

From Around Home Kennebunk ME.

And here is one of those pattern shots.
