I am cleaning up some of my old backup drives, eliminating duplicate files and just generally deleting unnecessary files. And in the process, I also found interesting files to post here. I liked ice images I recently saw on Stephen Gingold Nature Photography Blog. I found a series of ice images from about 10+ years ago. So I thought I would post some here. The featured image was a 2 shot pano captured with a Canon 70-300mm DO lens @ 300mm, aligned & blended in Photoshop. Also the featured image was photographed in early morning cooler light. It reminded me of a Bird with the beak to the left.

Going over files from last year and found this one. When the weather starts getting colder, I like looking for interesting ice patterns in streams or along lakes and hopefully with an item in the composition for a focal point. I found this leaf stuck in a small twig above this ice formation. I liked the early morning low sun backlighting the leaf, adding warmth, highlighting textures & patterns in the ice. Photographed with a Canon Eos 1D MkIII with a Canon 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6 DO IS USM @ 300mm, 1/100 @ f/8, ISO 400. I also used High Pass Sharpening in Photoshop to help bring out details & textures in the ice and leaf.
