Following on from my previous post on the big melt, some interesting things have been happening in my garden.
I've become fascinated by the thawing and re-freezing of the snow in the garden, leaves are suspended in different layers of ice, millions of air bubbles glow in the light and the surface reflects the trees and sky, it's all fantastic in its random nature, I have no control other than how I frame the shot.
Things are changing constantly, the clouds reflect different colours, the sun moving across the sky highlights different areas, here the sun crept past my garage and lit a single section of the ice.
I have found myself looking for single leaves or smaller elements but I also like when there is a collection of items trapped. This shot was taken early in the morning before the sun had melted the top layer so it has a matt feel with millions of air bubbles.
The beauty in these images is in the detail, it isn't reflected in these web sized jpegs, but up close they are fantastic, here's a small crop of one of the images above to show some of the detail.
I hope to have a selection of these images printed for display and sale soon, I think they make a really nice series.
