And then it snowed.

Before I move on entirely, I thought I could give proof that I do actually look UP from time to time. ūüôā

While landscapes, or rather pondscapes in this case, are not my forte, you might be interested to see where I took all of the shots that I featured over the last month and a half.

Rejects, batch #3 (It’s a strange and fabulous world…)

Hi, everyone. ¬†Here is the next round of remaining images from my frozen pond collection, photographs that didn’t make the cut for a feature post, but which I’m gathering together this week in batches to close out the series.

Rejects, batch #1

Okay, gang, I’m nearing the end of my ice series. ¬†I have a large number of images left that I’d still like to share with you, but which I’ll group together ¬†in sets this week, in somewhat of a haphazard fashion to speed things along, starting tonight. ¬†In some ways, these photographs, for one reason or another, didn’t make my final cut when I was sorting through things and trying to decide what to post. So, for that reason, they’ve been booted to my own personal “Salon des refus√©s.” But that doesn’t mean I deemed these images unworthy of contribution; ¬†it just means they didn’t fit whatever my purpose was whenever I posted.

So here, for what it’s worth, is batch #1, of the “refus√©s”:

Ice Etching

Some areas of the pond are very smooth and clear, as you’ve seen from some of my posts, and so my photographs have often been focused on what I have been able to see beneath the surface. ¬†Others, in the more shallow sections, are rough and bumpy, or scarred by cuts and cracks. ¬†This surface ice in the image below (unfortunately a bit out of focus) looks almost like it has been carved to me.
