Photo of the Month

On one hot December afternoon I was seating in my garden.  The sun was high and strong, the air still. It was  really hard to move in such penetrating heat. Even the birds were silenced, I imagined they were high in the trees, statue like, breathing with open beaks. Light was too bright to read, even in the shade of an umbrella. So instead I watched the ice-cubes in my glass.

At first I was fascinated by lines and reflected colours.

Then by the texture of melting ice.

After a while, I started to notice shapes and some figures appeared in my images.

Finlay when the ice nearly melted, I’ve spotted this little “ice monster”.

    Fascinating watching ice as it melts. Backgrounds have a striking effect on the patterns & colour.
    Lovely images.

  2. Eva, I love the way you see things in the “ordinary” and make them extra-ordinary. The final image was probably a reflection from the birds in the trees :-).
