Creative Photography: Ice Ice Baby
I don’t know how creative my photography is in this shot. I will say that I had to lie down on the ground to get the best effect and getting back up sure felt creative.
This was taken this past winter. It had been freezing cold for days and then overnight the temperature rose into the 50s and it rained and rained. That spout thing was dripping like crazy all day.
Then – just as suddenly – the sun came out and the temps dipped. Dipped into - oh my god my skin is coming off - cold. The constant drip turned to a hesitant splat. And with each little splat that icicle got taller and taller, reaching back up toward the spout as if it wanted to climb back in there and warm up.
I’ve seen icicles hanging down but this guy was hanging up. And I thought he was the coolest thing. There’s a second little one which I think came from a drip off the pool cover, and the little guy is checking out his reflection in the pool base.
