The title might not indicate clearly that what I’ve captured in this scene is entirely frozen and static, despite the appearance of motion.
I know that I’m breaking some composition rules with this one (placing the bubble in the middle, etc.), but I like the dimension and lines offered by the reeds and needles.

There are a number of frozen bubble trails and patterns on certain sections of the pond. Here are a couple of examples:
I’ve come full circle on WP. This is my one-year anniversary for this photography blog. Hooray! I send my deepest thanks out to all of you who have followed me throughout this year. Your comments, suggestions, questions, and humor have been a source of great delight and support to me. I look forward to our continued exchanges in the coming year! Many thanks and all best wishes!
