Pond Ice, continued

Liz Gauffreau asked about the size of the pond in Maine.  It is about 77 acres and is connected to a much larger pond, which is over 915 acres. So, ponds are really what we think of as lakes in other states. From what I understand the distinction between a pond and a lake in Maine does not have to do with size but with depth.

Although this shot is not as crisp as I would like (impossible to focus fully in this case through the surface of the ice), I like the dynamism and variety of formations captured here.

An image I came across looking through an older file of photographs of my beloved pond, where I was unable to return over the holidays this winter.  I’ve posted many images of the frozen pond here, but I have hundreds more in my archives. I never cease to be fascinated by the formations that bubble up in that pond in winter.  I miss my ice bubbles.

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 refusés.” 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 “refusés”:
