Taken at a local lake a couple of winters back. I just liked the orange red and browns frozen into the surface of the minty coloured ice.

It's fascinating Derek. The ice is a wonderful colour and there are lots of fine textures.

A really eye drawing composition, which in many ways makes one sit up and think the reasoning and rationale behind such a piece. "I would like to think that it was captured purely for its aesthetic reasons?" or "because it was there?"

I like it. Would love to see it in B & W. It might render stronger without the distraction of colour.

I can see what attracted you Derek. There's a lovely tonal gradation bottom to top as well, and the reeds give a strong graphic border to the top of the image. Looks a bit cold for being out and about though!! TongueGrin

I like it too, My first thoughts were when did you take that, as i thought you had taken it recently Tongue, I did think it was getting colder but not that cold Grin.

Beautifully detailed colour Derek, it'll be with us sooner than you might think. There's nip in the air every morning now in Scotland.

I took it in December 2010.

Nice to see this is getting some interest. I wasn't hopeful.

Hi Derek love the starkness of this image with the splash of colour from the leaves, an image your thoughts can get lost in Smile

It's simple yet very pleasing to the eye, I like the colour of the ice, especially how it's a darker shade in the fg, the colour of the leaves compliment it perfectly! Really lovely work Derek!
