Still Learning To See

Another on ice

Some of my best, “old friends” will show up in this Governor’s Gallery show. Among them is this photograph of new ice with a stem of grass embedded in it. I enjoyed making several photographs one morning on the edge of a small pond in Calais while out walking with my friend Rob.

Interestingly I was nearly sixty years old before I actually looked at new ice and saw it for the amazing phenomenon it is. The thick crystals don’t last long and I always have to look closely to see them but it is literally the process of a solid crystal of ice being wrenched out of the liquid water as temperatures drop. What a difference a degree or two makes!

    You didn’t walk by this lovely – almost like a painting.
