Icy Pond and sun reflection ( 75 B )
very cold nights, the surface of ponds and shallow areas along the edges of the
Merced River will freeze over. The
thin ice forms beautiful patterns
as the crystals grow. The image
here is not much bigger than your hand.
The secret of good photographs here is to get out early before the sun
melts the tiny ice crystals.
This image is pretty special to me. I was frantically struggling to get the tripod in place and get the right composition and focus before the sun hit the ice. But, just about the time I was ready to snap off an image, the sun hit the icy surface making a wonderful warm reflection of the sun in the small area of unfrozen water . A minute later it was gone.
