The cold of the night created these ice figures with such striking shapes that they seem to have been made in a mould for decorative purposes. In reality, their unique appearance is because the water under the ice has evaporated, creating these beautiful icy, almost floating textures. It is the photographer’s job to give the final touches to the work of art, creating the right frame to highlight the forms.
Processed in Camera raw, with s/ight adjustments of lights and shadows. Edited in Photoshop, applying the last color corrections, removal of much of the dominant b/ue hues and cropping of the superfluous details.
