Camera:Canon EOS 5D

This is the parking lot of the athletic field and the pond (outside of photo to right) in my town.  It does not get plowed so one has to wait till a thaw or else have a four wheel drive vehicle to get in (and get out) to the pond’s edge.

I drove for the first time in months down to the pond’s edge and took photographs of the pond, the morning sky, reflections on the ice which still supports fisherman.  But, as it turns out, leaving the pond was more interesting to me.  I made a series of photographs of different exposures and ended up thinking this illustrated our February thaw better than anything else.

  1. the light, the liquidness of it, perfect!

  2. It looks amazing, the sky is so beautiful.

  3. Tipota and Palpinao, Liquidness of it, I like that so much and the beauty of the sky? Sometimes it is the cloudy days that express the most. Particularly when you have a cloud bank in front of the rising or setting sun. Then, the magic really does happen!
