Winter Blossom

by Mei Xu

In 40mph bone-chilling wind, I was walking with snowshoes and searching for some interesting patterns of ice cracks on the frozen lake. Instead of big bubbles and cracks which I originally tried to shoot, I found this composition. The cracks formed like a tree shape with snow spotted like blossoms.
Equipment: Nikon D700+24-70mm/f2.8

Wow, very striking, and the story about it added so much. To think this “tree” was created by ice!

What a great image. Its very striking and well spotted. It plays with your brain trying to figure out what you’re looking at. Perfect!

So glad you gave the explanation, as I never would have guessed what it is. A beautiful abstract and marvelous wonder of nature.
