Info

The structure of natural Ice is changing and is rarely the same from day to day. It is a product of atmospheric conditions such as temperature, rain, snowfall and the flow of water. Its presence when discovered is like a temporary jewel, fragile yet beautiful. Photographing in the winter also has a feel of purity. Snow and ice simplify landscapes, yet they create subtle and exquisite nuances when combined with the lower light levels. As snow blankets the landscape, ice forms on rivers, lakes, puddles, and the edges of rocks, its temporary presence a challenge to capture. Each photograph made of ice reflects a moment in time and a unique sculpture of elegance. I wanted to experience the world in this colder time frame and capture it’s beauty. The coming change to the environment thru warming seasons made it important to document these natural structures of beauty before they become reduced.
