    A few recent Icescapes, the first two "Orange Ice" taken with D200, the other two taken with D70, all with the 200-400 telephoto and 1.7x, hand held.

    first one is my favorite, and these first two, no additional processing, just a crop.

    We had a great sunset going on and reflecting on the ice so I took advantage.

    and what about this BW conversion? thoughts?

    The first one is a truly unique shot. Congrats Wade!
     
  4. Love the first one. Others are good as well.

    Wade,
    The first could be used as part of a psychology test -- I just sat here staring at it, and imagined all kinds of things. Great shot.

    that first one is a great image!
     
  7. Beautiful color, Wade

    thanks Gale,

    We actually hit 60 yesterday in Missouri, but it is dropping fast and will be snow AM on christmas day.

    Joys of midwest living. Temps were chilly on these shots for sure.

    Cheers,

    Wade

    Yes, when I got home, I realized it was that once in a month or two or three shots you get. I was driving by the frozen wetlands area, and the sun just peaked with orange, only had the tele on the camera, so thought hmm why not.

    turned out great, no processing except for cropping.

    Thanks,

    Wade

    thanks Bob, that is my hope once in a while, capture something that makes folks stare and think. By the way, even though I have seen your avatar, just noticed that weird wink...spooky...
    :eek:

    Thought I was seeing things.

    Well, have to give credit to mother nature on this one.

    Cheers, thanks Phil

  14. Nice, especially the first one, very surrealistic. Could have been taken on a different planet.
     
  15. I like all except the last one. But, and in this I'm with the others, #1 is really special.

    Cheers

    thanks Miriam, much appreciated. with the weather being so different lately (50-60) than a week ago, it feels like a different planet.

    Cheers,

    Yes, the last is the weakest, don't know why I put it up there, I tend to rank the first as my best and the third next, but I am a sucker for BW.

    The first will be on the wall for sure.
