Flowers—Lines—Ice

A frozen pond opens windows to another world.

I carried out no post-processing for this image. I selected the “vivid” pre-set in program mode on my camera for this photo.

  3. Another great shot Melanie (or is it Mel)…I would appreciate some more info on your camera setting, filters used etc cos I would love to try and capture an image like this

    • Thanks, Steve, and thanks for your interest in my photo. I shoot with a Panasonix Lumix DMX LX5 (which has a F2.0 ultra-wide-angle 24mm Leica DC Vario-Summicron lens). I am still a newbie to photography, and after a lot of consultation with other more experienced photographers in my family, I opted for the Lumix (and love it). I don’t feel ready, yet (but am on the verge, I think) of stepping up to an SLR. The Lumix is a great compact digital camera that handles most of the shots I want to take at the moment. My process has been gradual… I am really learning (and teaching myself) as I go. I guess that’s what a lot of people do. My camera setting for this particular image: ISO 400, f4.0, 1/3200 sec. BTW, it’s definitely Melanie (I’ve never liked to be called “Mel”). Some people call me “Lemony” (an inversion of Melanie).

    this is stunning! the colours are amazing, and I never would have guessed this wasn’t shot with a dSLR (more proof that it’s not the camera that makes the image beautiful, but the photographer).

    • Thank you so much. I really like my Lumix and may one day move up to a dSLR, but for now I feel like I still have plenty to learn with the equipment I have. I appreciate your stopping by!

  7. Wow….that’s really neat. Beautiful shot! Now that I think about it, I don’t think I’ve ever seen frozen bubbles before…

    • Thanks, Desiree (Desi). I’ll be posting more frozen bubble shots in the coming days. I became completely taken with them (read “obsessed” :-)) They’re really very beautiful. I wish I could go back now to Maine to take more pictures!

  9. another great example from your series..the color (almost serving as a background) with the more monochromatic bubble complement each other very well ! beautiful work
