Natural landscapes: encased in the snows of winter

ICE FORMATION ON THE OTTAWA RIVER, DEEP RIVER, ONTARIO

While visiting family in eastern Ontario, I ventured onto the thick ice of this river, which serves as the border between two Canadian provinces, to find interesting formations like this.
Using a very shallow depth of field put the distant shoreline out of focus so it wouldn’t compete with the ice formation, yet still enable you to comprehend what you’re seeing.
Winter light, coming from so far south, is very good all of the short days of winter and that’s what made this compelling scene so photogenic.
