At Phoenix Lake

At Phoenix Lake

One of my favorite spots, tucked down just off a park entrance.  A little ice still on the surface that you can see on the left, a slight high cloud cover that diffused the sunlight nicely.  This is a 15 second exposure that smoothed the calm water even more and with no breeze the trees and brush were quiet.

Patterns in an icicle (1)

2015_Winter_e_0065

Icicles have beautiful patterns and textures.  Just look closely at the surface and deeply into it.  Sunlight, the blueness of the sky, and shadows come through here.  The photo is a broad field of patterns, lights, and subtle colors converging to a darker region.
