    • Thanks, Yoshizen! The ice just draws me in in strange ways.

  2. And……were back to ice 😉 Another great capture…I’m guessing the water must freeze really quickly there to capture these bubbles of air

    • Well, Steve, I just can’t get enough of it! Actually, these ice images are mostly from Maine (from late Dec and early Jan), though I’m getting some new ice shots from here in PA, where things froze a few days ago (temporarily) and I had some fun with some bubbles in some frozen puddles (perhaps those will show up here, too).

    • Thanks, Lesley! It’s wonderful how this image looks different to different people. Someone else told me it looks like an eye!

  5. Simply beautiful and well composed.
    The black and white creates a kind of mysterious atmosphere.

    • Thank you, Pablo. I felt that this image just begged to be in black and white. I’m glad you feel the mystery of it. There was certainly an inexplicable force to these bubbles that drew me right in.

    Beautiful. It almost looks like a shot from a scanning electron microscope!

    • Thanks, Denzil. I can see what you mean: I feel that away about a number of the frozen bubble shots I’ve taken recently. They either look like they’re some fabulous grouping of subatomic particles or a fantastic planetary system!

    Another gem totally suited to black and white.
