Last week, I shared recent photos of large ice bubbles in a restored wetland at the Platte River Prairies. This week, I’m sharing more photos from the same frozen wetland, but featuring other (mostly) subjects I found in between shooting bubbles. All these photographs were taken during two trips a couple days apart.
Temperatures in my part of Nebraska were about 60 degrees F today. I don’t want to complain, but these warm temperatures are seriously restricting my ability to artistically express myself by photographing capsules of decomposition gases encased in frozen water. What am I supposed to do instead? Sit on my porch and watch tonight’s gorgeous sunset while wearing a t-shirt?? I guess I’ll have to.
Maybe next week will bring back the ice. One can only hope.
Great shots. How wet did you get while taking them? :-)
Ha! Not very. Elbows and knees got a little damp, but mostly the outer layers of my clothes. A few times, my damp coveralls froze to the ice a little while I was lying prone with the camera, but I peeled back off just fine!
I see why this icy world is your muse.
Loving the ice photos. Thank you! I can almost forget my dislike of the cold.
