The Ice Is Right




We had an ice event this week here in Wichita.   Trees and power lines were encased in ice, causing the trees to make an unnerving crackling sound in the slightest breeze.   The first day it was overcast and my photographs were disappointing.  I thought maybe things would be more promising in the direct sunlight, and this morning that proved correct.   I came in with several promising images, the first of which you see here.   I must say that I had to relearn how incredibly shallow the depth of field is when shooting things this close, even with smaller apertures.   Anyhow, I’m going to post ice photos as long as I can think of bad puns for the post title.  Already rejected for this post are: “Ice Knowing Ya”, and “Ice-aroni, the San Francisco treat”.

    Icy you still have your sense of humor. Or as they say “a pun my word.”

  3. It could be a “vice” trying to fun your way out of this one. it’s a clever “device”, though. And Michele is right; this is stunning and very “precise” (pardon the pun).

  4. I forgot to mention that the shallow depth of field is a contributing factor in making this a great shot.

  5. Thanks Ken. Fortunately I had been reminded during the previous days shooting of how shallow the depth of field was when working like this.
