The Color of Melting

Really warm weather and strong winds have pulled the snow to the edge of the woods and water is beginning to flow into the pond and puddle on the surface of the ice. The colour of the water is that glacial green, not easy to capture in the photos below. I keep running out to the pond at different times of the day to take photos but never seem to capture that particular quality of colour. Within minutes of the ice going out of the pond the peepers will start to sing their spring song, I can hardly wait.

    1. Thanks Maureen, I would so love to "get" that turquoise, green shimmer, I begin to think that often photos are just memories and triggers for memory.

    1. Thanks Charlton, I find that so much of photography is the luck of timing, the light in place.

  4. The second shot gives such a sense of what is happening; the retreat and the renewal. Love the crack too - beautiful!
