Natural landscapes: spring ice
ICICLES AND WATER AT BIG HILL SPRINGS PROVINCIAL PARK, ALBERTA, CANADA
April is a time of transition in much of Canada. While the days are often warm and the snow generally gone, there are often days of cold temperatures and snow. A day of such weather took me to this provincial park about a half-hour drive from my home in Calgary. I hoped to find ice and water combinations and, as you can see, I wasn’t disappointed.
The challenge here was achieving a long exposure (to make the flowing water silky) with the ice not moving. Several good compositions were tossed out for this reason, but the photo you’re looking at here is a success. Nikon D7100, tripod, 70-300 mm. zoom lens, polarizing filter, neutral density (darkening) filter.
