Hi all!

I promise... this should be the last icy picture of the season. I imagine that you are getting tired of this subject.

When I discovered this little surface it remembered me Red Indian art or some other kind of indigenous art of North or even South America. I hesitated to post this picture because it only gets its full expression at a bigger size. I nevertheless hope it will please you.

Kind regards

Hi Markus
Your series about ice was wonderful.
I find in the ice amazing thinks.
Congratulation for your great idea.

Hello Markus,
Very interesting topic. A beautiful cacophony of shapes, colors and shadows.

Ciao Markus,
altra fantastica immagine di questa magnifica serie, in cui hai intepretato sempre con notevole gusto artistico forme e colori, che si formavano sulle superfici ghiacciate, dal punto di vista tecnico la resa è sempre stata di altissimo livello, quello che mi ha colpito di più, oltre ovviamente alla gratificazione e alle emozioni nell'osservare le tue immagini, è stata la loro continua e sorprendente novità, ogni immagine era diversa e ogni volta mi sorprendeva.
Grazie e complimenti
Buon fine settimana
Con amicizia
Ciao Maurizio

hello Markus,
wonderful scene and photo!
"keep photographing!" TFS

Hi Markus,
i never get tired of looking at your natural composition here. They are similar in a way but very much different in nature. Upon scrutinizing there will be millions of them , to be seen and to be appreciate. You are the one to give us that view.
thanks for sharing.


Ciao Markus. No tired MF! I'm exctited for another winner sharpened and geometric artisitic work. Well done and have a nice Sunday.

Lieber Markus,
Dies ist doch wieder so schön und ganz anders als die anderen Eisbilder.. so viel verschiedene Künstler scheinen am Wek gewesen zu sein.
Wieder einmalig schön durch Farbgebung und Komposition. Aber leider für dich ist der Frühling jetzt wirklich im Einzug. Motive wirst Du aber in der Natur immer neue finden.
Schönä Suntag!
Liebe Grüsse

Ciao Markus, splendid abstract composition with fantastic ligh, great artwork, very well done, have a good week end, ciao Silvio

Hi Markus. My friend one day not to soon i hope work will be over and i will have more time for fun things. Your ice picture could go on all year round if posible . As i have said before you have eyes that see things i would walk stright by. Only nature in all its glory could have made the paterns in todays picture. with the different shades of brown. well taken TFs.

Bonsoir Markus,
Alors tu vas quitter l'hiver? Bienvenue au printemps!
Dans ta composition, je vois effectivement un personnage qui s'en va avec un sac à l'épaule... Le bonhomme hiver peut-être. Je vois aussi un tas de perles d'argent... Tu vois, même avec une taille réduite, ta création permet de libérer l'imagination. Bonne nuit!

Hello Markus,
I must say it's been a real treat viewing your many wonderful images hidden in the river bottom. As warmer weather nears you will undoubtedly have many more interesting photos to share with us in the coming months.
I will surely miss all the strange and interesting creatures you discovered, but I'm sure they will return once more for their annual winter migration.
I can definitely see why this particular image reminded you of Indian Art, as I see an animal in the upper right hand corner which looks something like a horse.
Thanks Again,

  • Great

Hi Marcus.
You are wrong. We have not tired of your ice masterpieces especially because of absence ours. Ice pattern of the shot is really fantastic and rich of content. There is a lot of place for fantasy. Thanks a lot and best wishes.

Hello Markus,
You know my opinion about this kind of photos. I like them very much. And I think this is one of your best. The change of the light in the lower parts to the dark in the higher parts works fantastic here. Superb composition. A pity that this is your last.
Don't have much time these days. Busy at work, my birthday and a new computer are the cause.

Una clásica más en blanco y sepia, dos de los principales colores que definen tu trabajo, esta vez incorporando figuras geométricas y creando un bello puzzle "galaciar". Interesante trabajo como siempre.
Un abrazo y buena semana Markus: Josep Ignasi.

ciao Markus!
you amaze me your ability to read these boards that nature has packed .. as had happened to the elephants, even in this work I see, as you wrote in the note, traces of Native Americans as facial profiles of redskins...thanks!
ciao sERGIO

Hy Markus
As ussualy, a very artistic image from you: the ice seems so thin and fragile, maybe also promising to you that will be the last picture from this season! Spring is comming MF and I am waiting for spectacular pictures from you !

All the best

Hi Markus,

I, for one, am sorry that this is the finale of your ice series. But I'm sure there will be more next winter! This one looks like a wonderful collage of glass with its shapes and textures. Just beautiful and the vertical composition is marvelous.


Hi Markus,

I do not bore the subject you can sure that! Nice to follow the Nature Mother from your lens evertime MF! This one is not exceptional! Great work!
TFS and have a nice week MF!


Hi Markus
Your icy portrait reminds me of a painting done by Pablo Picasso. I love the colours, lines and textures. Again mother nature has shown us her beautiful side.
TFS Janice
PS you're correct about using a macro...I have so many things I want to see up close...stay tuned.

Hallo Marcus,
Die gesamte Serie "Natur Eis Bilder" ist Dir sehr gelungen. Ich finde die Idee hervorragend und die Effekte lassen sich sehen. Also herzlichen Glückwunsch und warten wir auf kommenden Winter 2011 um die hoffentlich weiteren folgen?.

Grüße aus NRW Siggi

Hello Markus! What a great shot you've done once again I love your style! A feast to the eyes, very well seen and technically very good, thanks!


Hi dear Markus,
Again another nice your icy series.
This is lovely too.
Nice colours with great contrast.

Best wishes

I've always maintained that your shots cannot be work, they're passion and emotion and a lot of other things.
I refuse to say anything about this shot, it would be, as we say in India, showing lamp-light to the Sun.
Respect, my friend!

Hi Markus,
Last for the season... but good to see something different now, in summer. As always, You created something from nothing. Fabolous textures.
Tfs, best regards, László
