Water and Ice

By moiral
Morning all. Despite the cold, horrible weather that we are now all sick of, there is still such beauty around us when we look closely. Today's shots are just bits of ice that have formed in a little stream, and on the weir at the river.
V1 & 2 icicles in a tiny stream leading into the river. I have added a slight orton bloom to these.
V3 Ice on a branch caught in the weir. Used a focal zoom to highlight the ice, otherwise shot untouched.
Thanks for C&Cs on yesterday's shot.

This is a lovely set - the effect in V1 is very subtly done, I'm not normally a fan of Orton!
I particularly like V3 but think I would prefer without the radial blur effect - added in post-processing it always seems a bit cold and clinical. Maybe a touch of vignette (light or dark) instead?

great images - nature is full of abstracts and these could easily be seen as either straightforward well captured records or beautiful natural abstracts. It is your vision which has made them special. Excellent achievement. A

All three are excellent Moira, showing so well your ability to see a shot where most wouldn't, and you've presented them well, hard to pick a favourite, but I'm going against just about everyone above with V2!
