Icy shadows…

April 8th, 2013

Last week the sun came out so even though a Siberian wind was chilling England I bundled up and went for a walk. I think I overdid it, but it was lovely to escape the house. I found some interesting photographs in the shadows on the frozen ditch water. The light shimmered through the hedgerow and glinted off the rough skin of ice. I haven’t retouched the colour in the photos. The hazy pink and green…up close it was like a nebula exploding. Here are my favorite shots… (Click on the photos to see a larger image)

Shadows

If you stare at it you start seeing things...I see I'm lost in a magical forest...any moment that white light will expand and drag me into the unknown...

Shadows

Shimmering loveliness...

Shadows

An exploding nebula...

Shadows

Up close I think it looks like the ultra sound of a fairy...what do you see?

    Number 4 looks like a teddy bear to me, if you had not mentioned shooting the shots near your home, I would have thought they were from space. Now, I’m wondering about the photos forwarded by the hubble sat.

    Now that you mention it, I can see a bear in profile. He looks like he’s laughing into his paw. That would be rather funny if the Hubble space images were photographs ice, but they must be real. It’s a pity we can’t fly over and have a closer look, but maybe that’s just as well. 🙂
