Reflecting on ice

Ice is a fact of life here.  We haven't any storm drains, so the water needs to run all the way down to State Street - a whole block - to find a way out.  We had some snow, which meant the snow banks grew out into the street again, and then we had rain.  With the snow blocking the water, there was no place for the water to go, so it formed a giant puddle at the end of the driveway.

Then it froze.


It doesn't seem like it, but the reflecting surface is a solid block of ice.  I used the Tenin Technique and placed the camera right on the ice to take this photo.  The lumps are from cars driving on it before it froze completely.

James at Newtown Daily Photo runs a theme called Weekend Reflections. Around a hundred photo bloggers post a photo containing a reflection; beautiful work. Click the link and go see!

  1. Ah, ice. Life is definitely easier without it, but your photo really captures it's beauty.

  2. Really neat technique and nice shot. Hoping some of the warmer wether makes it up your way and helps out with the ice.

  3. Great shot, beautiful reflection!

  4. I would have never guessed it was solid ice, Buck. I looks like a liquid puddle.
