    • Thanks, Steve. And thanks for visiting. This is a new blog for me. You mention shapes, which reminds me that I meant to comment on your own blog how much I liked your photo of the bicycle rack.

    • I was literally down on my hands and needs on the ice exploring its surface. I was stunned by the beauty of what had been frozen there. Now I am eager to search for more frozen bodies of water, because I felt like, by the time I left Maine, I was just getting the hang of what I was doing. I want more practice!

    • Thanks, Chloe. I was lucky to happen upon this beautiful opening in the ice and the colors were all right there (no post-processing). I often like to shoot in black and white, but this shot is definitely better in color.

      • I admire your patience, it’s obvious a lot of hard work is going into these shots. Are you using a macro lens?

        • Chloe, you are so generous with your comments. Thank you. I am still a beginner photographer, and am using a Panasonic Lumix LX5. It has an F2.0 ultra-wide-angle 24mm lens, which I almost always have set to “macro” since most of my shots are close-ups. I have learned in recent months to really take my time and get my settings in place–before the shot–now that I’m getting a better feel for what I like and how to achieve it.

    • I was fascinated, too, by what I saw in this opening in the ice. There is something so fluid and “warm about ” and yet, it was frozen!
