A Little Ice of Heaven



Another image from last weeks ice storm in Wichita.   I’m no scientist, and I don’t play one of TV.   However,  I believe the multicolored points of light we see in this image were caused by the ice crystals acting as tiny prisms.   They split the sunlight into it’s component colors, the variation in colors due to the different alignments of the ice in relation to the sun and camera.   Some parts of this image may have been…enhanced a little during post production but nothing has been added that wasn’t already there.   It was quite a spectacle, until the sun melted the ice later in the day.    Shallow depth of field strikes again!
