Natural landscapes: When ice & water collide


One of my favourite activities in early winter is to head out to streams that have log jams. They are normally quite ugly, but when temperatures first turn cold and the streams haven’t iced over, magical scenes like this can be found. This is a very loong exposure, which turned the water silky and made it complement, rather than compete, with the ice.
Greenwood is a quiet gem of an area east of Toronto, Canada’s largest city. When my wife and I are in the area, we like to go there to walk and pray. Nikon D50, tripod, polarizing filter.
