I was nominated by a fellow blogger, Stella of Giggles & Tales, for a 7-Day Nature Photo Challenge. Stella’s blog is always full of interesting posts, which are a blend of poetry, photography and perspectives on the world around her. Go check her blog out!!
After a brief hiatus to catch up with things, here we continue for the final three days of the challenge…
This image came from a walk in early Spring 2011, on a beautiful day that showed the promise of the season that had just commenced. Walking by this small pond, my eye caught the interesting aspect of having two distinct types of reflection at work: the slightly rippled water and the not-quite-perfect ice.
What attracted me about these reflections is not only the difference, but also the similarity. In transition from water to ice, the character of the reflection is preserved, as can be seen in a number of the birch trunks. But then, we also see that the reflection is more muted and diffuse in the ice.
Hope you enjoy this image, as Spring moves forward in the Northern Hemisphere.
This image was captured with a Canon EOS 5D Mk II using an EF 24-105mm f/4L lens. Exposure settings were 1/80 second with f/9 at 400 ISO.
Post a #naturephoto every day and nominate another blogger for this challenge.
The challenge of nominating a fellow blogger… Walking with a Smacked Pentax is a truly fantastic blog with beautiful images of the sights of Northern England. Go check out this talented, creative blog! If he accepts this challenge, I look forward to the results!
