Just another (Gr)Egghead trying to get it in focus
There are a number of frozen bubble trails and patterns on certain sections of the pond. Here are a couple of examples:
Love the detail and abstract quality along with the black and white toning.
Thank you. I’m glad you like this one.
Love the black and white.
—– My guess is, the continuous long line was created by
an under water creature (Snail kind ?) griding on the bottom floor and
stirred the bottom vegetation such as the green algae kind, and releasing
the bubbles produced by algae. (by-product of Photosynthesis)
But something ring-shaped object dropped into the floor is blocking and
only allowing the bubbles to escape from its edge, hence created ring shape.
—– may be, may not be, still, am I spoiling your fantasy ?
(In that case, sorry about )
This is good, Yoshi-sensei. You’re not ruining anything at all. I’d be happy to know what creates these bubbles. What’s even more interesting to me is that they were frozen so quickly before making it to the surface.
Snail line couldn’t be made instant = took even hours from start to the finish. = hence the rise of bubbles.
So, this is the real mystery to me —– Quick or slow,
how the ice was formed ? ? ?
So very different than the previous bubbles.-all wonderful!
There really is such a variety on the pond. I’m glad you’re enjoying the series. Thank you for your visits, Elena.
Wow…almost like finding baby snail tracks on a sidewalk in the spring….
It is almost like that.
Starry Starry Night in a Galaxy far, far away. Or in the pond in Maine.
I am catching up and getting over withdrawals. Internet access was down for over a day a half.
Thank you, Joseph, for your recent visit and your many generous comments. I’m so happy you’re enjoying my ice series!
Amazing! I love this!
Thank you! I’m so glad you like it!
Love the soberness of the B&W – and the subject looks like cosmic graffiti. They’re fascinating because it seems impossible that water could freeze so suddenly.
“Cosmic graffiti”: I love that! I’ve been trying to figure out some way to describe this, and I just couldn’t find words, but you’ve just done it! Thank you! And yes, I’m really quite puzzled about how these bubbles could have been captured this way before reaching the surface. It’s interesting to think about.
I can’t even imagine what would have caused these bubbles to do this. Another mystery!
If only I could see deeper into the pond!
J’aime vraiment ces effets de bulle ou d’eau gelée. Une merveille que tu sais bien exploiter.
Merci, Val. Ta dernière série est vraiment magnifique. J’adore Louna! Elle a un regard merveilleux.
Like the milky way!
I wonder if there is a water source coming into the pond – a spring or a stream?
Little Webb is connected to a larger pond (Big Webb) and there are, I think there may be some streams that feed into them (but some of them are not flowing year round). Also, Little Webb really is more the size of a lake. It’s called a pond in Maine because of its depth.
That is fascinating. Mysterious beauty, Lemony, love this series!
I could lose hours following some of these bubbles paths and patterns (hoping to figure out who is making them ). At the same time, I enjoy the mystery!
Mysterious indeed. They look like tracks made by creatures but how did the dynamiic bubble trails get captured by the slowly encroaching ice. Your ice series is absolutely superb, I love peering into them and pondering the whys and wherefores
Thank you very much for your encouragement. The pond is really such a fascinating place. It’s as though I’ve entered another realm in winter.
Indeed – an incredibly photogenic one too
If only I could tell the little creature who did this that you said so.
