Textured thaw...

03rd January 2017

This photo of temporary ‘street art’ of textured ice detail was made possible due to a rapidly thawing thin layer of ice on a puddle. Sometimes it’s good to shuffle along slowly with eyes focused on the ground rather than looking in the direction where I’m headed. By framing the shot tightly to contain it all within the viewfinder, the impact of the pattern has been emphasised more than if I had shown all the puddle area and some of the surrounding area. It’s a fine example of an impromptu photo opportunity and why it pays to have any type of camera at hand at all times.
