 Ice can be a source of form and texture when it is not busy being a pain in the ass.

Did you take them today? Do you still have any of your own fingers?
They are so artistic as always. The 2nd one is my favourite.

I also like ice and snow formations. Haven't ventured out this winter yet.


I have a few from previous years.

The third was posted by mistake but I don't know how to remove it.

Mother Nature can be quite the artisan. It's just a matter of browsing through the gallery of Her creations and pick-up whatever you might fancy. Your sweeping captures shows me that you get the big picture. My cropped sensor does not provide a very wide frame without using a very short focal length lens, which I don't own and therefore cannot deploy to effect.

I have never used a full frame camera. Sometimes cropping can give a pano effect.

Sorry, I assumed you were using an FX sensor, which offers a very significant panorama with an 18mm W/A lens. Using such a lens on a DX sensor mimics what would be seen in the viewfinder of a 28mm lens coupled to an FX frame. That is certainly wide, but not astoundingly so. When the subject is spread along a horizontal zone across the frame then cropping does deliver a pseudo-panoramic result. I used it for "Like-minded Skippers" and also for "Snow Dunes" as well as many other times when the top and bottom of the original frame were without merit. Sometimes however, I am forced to stitch two or more frames together to achieve coverage of the subject, as with "Little Rouge Elbow" and "Fowl Play".Like-minded Skippers

Ice as medium but closer to home.  Feathered visitor of a different sort ... but also one that didn't stay very long.

Trying my best to fit in. Actually these are from last year, I made one today, just not as cute.
