The Cold Snaps
Photographs of ice taken in the garden during the cold winter weather
A big freeze happened overnight, and the next morning my small pond was completely frozen over. There had been a big storm and the high winds must have frothed up the water, whipping up bubbles of many different sizes that then became frozen in time as they journeyed towards the surface. The wintery scenes on the water's surface looked to me like scenes from outer space. This inspired me to get out every morning after a freezing night to see what incredible patterns that Mother Nature might have left on the pond for me to photograph.
Some more photographs of ice puddles on Dartmoor
It was great to be up on Dartmoor early in the morning and the light was beautiful. The puddles on the wet paths had frozen overnight and I really enjoyed photographing the intricate patterns that had formed.
