Kaleidoscope

I was inspired by recent work Karen Messick has been doing. She has been creating what I would consider to be kaleidoscope images . Being that ice abstracts are one of my favorite things to shoot I took a few to create kaleidoscopic images.  The kaleidoscope effect is created by mirroring a single image in Photoshop . I think I'll do some more.

I Love Ice!

Susquehanna St Park, below the Conowingo dam is the place I go when the temperatures drop below freezing.  Arriving pre-dawn, hopeful that water has not been released  to generate the days electricity .  On some days the water is up and the days ice washed away before the sun rises.  Some days give a few tantalizing minutes before the flood. Some days you get lucky and can shoot until worn out and cross-eyed.  The infinite opportunity for  icy compositions is the result of the reduced flow of water from the Conowingo dam the water receding and leaving  a blanket of ice on shores edge.  I Love Ice!
