Rock Face Icicles

How’s this for textures?  Having spent a couple of hours in the snow, and suffering from numb fingers, I almost missed the cascading  icicles on the moss-covered rock face on the way back to the car.  What’s five more minutes in the cold anyway?   This ended up being my favorite shot from the Sunday photo walk.

  1. Love the play of the slick ice with the softer fuzzy lichened surfaces.
    Would be interesting to see a few foreshortened shots in a smaller f-stop, bring the icicles into sharp focus and make the rocks a little less sharp. Or maybe its just perfect and I’m being obsessive about fuzzy things.

    1. Thank you for visiting and for your feedback! I do actually have some different shots like that – I just chose this one because I liked the contrast of all the surfaces. I may play with the photos and see if there’s anything I like enough to post later along with a picture of the entire rock face. Not quite sure yet…

  2. I like it. My first thought when looking at it – “frozen mutant frog”. Did you get any wider shots? Might be nice to see more of the rock face.

    1. OMG. I saw the “frog” too, and was actually wondering when I posted it if anyone else would also see that!! That’s awesome. I did happen to get some wider shots, although it was kind of dark by the time I backed up and was too cold to get the tripod out for the slower shutter speed I would have needed. Maybe I’ll pick out a couple more for my post tonight.
