I feel that photography is all about balance, and worked hard with the above composition of the container pier to get the balance right - a large, empty sky balancing a small point on interest in the foreground, with two people walking on the shore.
At the very end of the field trip, as I was walking back to the car, I noticed some rust, and made a final composition.
This was the first Winter, Water & Ice field trip to really present the full experience. Snow covered ground, lovely ice formations, and swiftly moving water. My first image (above) was of a really unusual ice formation on the bottom of a fallen tree - just lovely to work with.
I could have worked along this stream for hours, with little gems like the above presenting themselves every couple of feet.
In the end, this field trip was fabulous - the blend of the running water with crystalline ice and powder-white snow made for such a beautiful morning of photography (and lovely images).
This field trip started working along the edge of the small stream that runs through the Dingle down to the North West Arm. All along the river were small patches of ice, perfect for photographing with a macro lens.
As we got closer to the small falls at the bottom of the stream, where were more occurrences of ice and running water in the same space - the real focus of the Winter, Water & Ice field trip series.

My favorite image of the field trip was a classic - the bottom of the small waterfall. A small ball of ice had formed on the rock at the bottom, and the fall swept around on both sides - perfect.
