  1. These are lovely. I find icicles difficult to photograph. You seem to have captured them perfectly.

      Thanks very much. I have to take quite a few to get some good ones. Sometimes it comes out great the first time. if you can shoot it from different sides to take advantage of the direction of the light it is easier to get a good shot. 😉

  2. Nice! I like the 3rd one down, in B & W. It has an extra sort of chilling effect. 🙂

      I found these were difficult to choose, colour or B&W. Posted some of both both for equal opportunity presentation. 😀

    Great series of icicles and frames. Love the stitching effect on the last frame, bit different.

      Thanks very much. That one was a bit of an experiment. Rather than modifying a software template frame and created that one from scratch.

  5. Water is simply amazing. I remember icicles hanging around on houses I’ve lived in and just looking/gazing at them while melting is going on and the sunlight is showing the spectrums.

    I am liking how you are getting different angles with them. As a photographer, tilting to one side, bending at the knees, or even turning slightly makes a difference. Thank you for the pictures and memories you have brought up 🙂

      Thanks very much. Camera angle & distance plays such an important part of composition. I think that goes a long way to what differentiates a photograph from a snap-shot. Most people don’t consider the codes & conventions of photographic composition. They follow the old Kodak slogan of “all you have to do is point & shoot.”. 🙂
