Just another (Gr)Egghead trying to get it in focus
The title might not indicate clearly that what I’ve captured in this scene is entirely frozen and static, despite the appearance of motion.
Just a note to say how much I’ve enjoyed your recent posts. Beautiful.
Hope all is well.
Thank you, Julie. I’m so glad you’re enjoying the posts.
I think it’s motion was frozen, literally, and not by the camera. That’s a really interesting phenomenon. This is a fascinating image. It’s as if somebody hit “pause” on a film. I expect the motion to resume when I’m looking at the image.
I like to imagine what is was about to happen when the freeze took place and what is going to happen when things thaw. I know it will be gradual, but it still appears as if it will all resume at the speed we’re used to when we press “play.”
Was the water lily leaf (if that’s what it was) frozen into the ice as well?
Yes, the leaf is under the surface of the water, too.
Boiling ice! Fabulous.
I love that thought, Elena, about boiling ice! Wonderful concept!! Thank you.
Another of nature’s private rituals – trying on a new coat when it thinks we’re not looking. Love the sense of urgency in this – another wonderful shot.
I enjoy your comments so much, Richard. You have such a wonderful way of articulating what you see. Thank you!
Very moving, indeed…and so compelling…what must contribute to the hydrophysics of pond water to cause such movement of the oxygen molecules in such a fashion? Wonderful, Melanie…another fantastic capture….
Thank you, Scott. The pond is the source of lots of unanswered questions like the ones you’ve asked, and lots of intriguing photographic subjects. I love the mystery of it.
You’re welcome…and I am with you, in loving the mystery of your pond…so wonderful.
A very intriguing image.
The Frozen brown stingray glided through the ice,
Dreaming of strange seas full of stars
That sing of Winter’s other Kingdom.
Wow! Lovely, Joseph, just lovely! Thank you!
