There is something so artistic in long willowy shadows on snow... may it be in color or B&W...I just Love the flow of lines and the black trunks of trees....I Love Winter and really don't mind the cold....there's always enough wool, fur and amazing synthetics to keep you comfortable!!!!

I love playing with my fixed Macro lens, and it's not just for close-up shots. It's a challenge when you are in the field since you must move to and fro for there is no zoom, but I Love the crisp images this lens gives me. This was late in the afternoon, so the sun was starting to cast her golden glow rays of the day.

I would have Loved to be able to get closer but the ice covered rocks are very dangerous...Again I love how the shadows and textures of snow and ice come alive in B&W....we plan on returning in Feb. to see if the wild artistic ice formations will form as they did last year....I have a posting in my older posts from there......
At the base of the falls there is quit a current....sort of a Whirlpool effect and I guess these little round ice formations were molded from constant spinning and rubbing against the ice...I've never seen that happen before...it was quit a marvel!!!! I Love how the sunlight is lighting up the ice just under the snow covered chunk of ice, just before the ice circles. I chose to present this shot in B&W for the brown stained water of the Little East does not make for pretty water.....

disappointed not to see the wild and artistic ice formations we saw last year....but the winter is not over....we will come again. I also was disappointed to see the Park Management use snowmobiles to groom the snowshoe trails....I may as well just have walked in with my boots.....I thought snowshoe trails had nice deep snow on them for that calorie burning workout!!!!!....What Gives?????

We experienced a very wet start to our New Year and as I was out exploring the ice covered rock cliffs In Algonquin Park I got quit Wet!!!! but found the water dripping from these ice formation, made interesting lines in my composition...I also converted this shot to B&W to make them stand out even more....but it was a challenge to try and keep my lens clean and clear of water drops.....
