As much as the entire landscape was beautifully coated in hoarfrost, there is an amazing amount of beauty to be found when you get up close to the frost. Although not seen in this image, when I examined it more closely, I discovered that it is made up of tiny, snowflake shaped ice crystals stuck together.

Each time I capture one of my ice images, I spend a lot of time trying to decide on the orientation. When it finally speaks to me, it’s usually because a message comes at me for the title.

During our long Minnesota winters, I search out ice formations wherever I can find them. I may spend hours seeking these little treasures hoping to capture a few that will become unique abstract compositions. On this particular outing, this image out of many is a standout.

Ice coats everything along the shore of Lake Superior this time of year. If one is careful, you can creep around on the icy shoreline and rocks and find little treasures.

As I was driving back from Silver Bay, Minnesota where I did some long exposure photography, I noticed these old pier supports and decided to investigate. They are in a small bay where the Split Rock River runs into Lake Superior. I really enjoyed how the ice had formed on the wood and wished I had taken more time to study them further. At the time I was frustrated by my variable neutral density filter creating artifacts in some of the images which meant I couldn’t get the creamy water effect I was after. I plan to pay a visit to the camera store where I purchased the filter and see what they have to say.
