Winter has arrived

posted on 8th of december, 2011
Winter arrived in Calgary in full force last weekend, with a big snow dump and cold temperatures passing through 0 C... I had a tarp covering our lawn furniture that freezing rain pooled on and froze. I grabbed a chunk of the ice and threw it in the freezer thinking it might make some cool shots (pun intended!). I had no idea how cool - the little bubbles moving through as it froze almost look like mercury when viewed closeup.

I put the chunk of ice on top of a glass and fired a wireless flash into the glass bottom to backlight it. I can't help but post this picture as I love how amazing it looks :) Take a look at the comp image to really see it up close...

I'm glad you are finally enjoying winter. Here in Alaska, December 22 ("the first day of winter") is more like the halfway point in our winter. It's been gorgeous.

Thanks for sharing this cool photo!
