You have really surpassed yourself - beautiful! The tones of colours are great and the close crop works exceptionally well.

Superbe photo, Markus, on croirait un mélange de cuivre et de mercure... c'est fantastique et c'est tout un art que tu nous présentes, de la nature en abstrait. La composition est fantastique, la lumière sublime et les effets sont tellement beaux. Merci! et merci pour les détails techniques pour les plus débutants comme moi...

Very impressive and unique piece of sculpture of river ice!
thank you for sharing with us that we do not have a chance to see it from other part of the world!
very good clarity, in natural colouration and details in the shot!
best regards and take care

Another very interesting and original photo from you!
I think i understand why you like this one so much :)
I too find it very beautiful, with all those fluid-like shapes which are in fact solid and all those colors - which are in fact reflections of the white light :) It's a very interesting "game" :)
The sharpness is very nice, but on a more personal note, i think i would have gone for a high f-stop, in order to keep as much as i could of it in perfect focus, so that the illusion would be even greater...but that's just my opinion...it might me different from anybody else's.
Anyway, it's a lovely post, my friend!
Bravo and TFS

You are going in a direction in your posts towards themes that are more happy as I noted before, so it's good to see yourself writing about that being your intention as well. I won't go in details this time but tell that I think it fits well in this direction and that I like this direction as well. Maybe the time you took off TN and that you visit less often brings you a change that effects you in a good way.
It feels funny that what brings people close here who are far apart in space is what you'd think of the last - the lot of work that makes us come here in our little free times. So meet you at the weekend my frind :)

I thought I was looking at molten iron. The colors for the reflection sky are just like the oil stains you can find on a ore liquid.
it is just amazing that such rapid cold can transform a river in such beautiful shapes.
P.S. I did notice that you need a realy good monitor to see the beauty of this photo. I looked at it briefly at work and missed out on a lot of details.

i see the fruits of your trekking through the snow has yielded another beauty. The diffused and refracted light here is extremely eye catching, very well done.

La nature est une artiste et que de merveilles elle créée. C'est vraiment original comme photo et composition. Les teintes de couleurs et détails sont très esthétiques. L'ensemble a presque l’air fait en une sorte de verre ou de cuivre, c'est étonnant! Merci,
This looks like a sculpture of a female nude.It is like she is lying on her stomach,I see the small of the back,the shoulder blades,the posterior, as she lies in running water.Perhaps my imagination is overworked.
A beautiful capture.
The focus is sharp with wonderful detail.

wozu Skilager gut sind! Toller Ausschnitt, unerwartete Effekte am Eis. Ich schätze sehr, dass Du zur Technik einiges sagst, das macht die Photo noch interessanter.

C'est très surprenant ce que la glace peut faire, au coeur de la nature.
Ces formes sont tellement enveloppantes
Merci pour le scintillement bien rendu
