Weekly Photo Challenge: (Reverse) Symmetry

With this week’s photo challenge theme in mind, I headed out to the ice … the colder temperatures of February have created icebergs on Lake Superior and a solid pile of ice slowly building out from shore.  It was 5 degrees Fahrenheit (-15 Celsius) as I parked the car late afternoon yesterday.  By the time I left over an hour later, my gloved fingers were starting to go numb and the sun was setting.  The beautiful changing light of the sun playing across the ice is always hard to leave (check back later this week for more from this afternoon excursion onto the ice).

For now, though, this is my take on “Symmetry” – the crystal ball’s image of the ice shards pushed up by the force of the continually moving water under the ice-covered shores of the Lake, reflecting an exact symmetrical view but on a totally different scale — a reminder that the raw beauty of Mother Nature is rarely even and orderly.

  1. Have you experienced any of those ice tsunamis, Kat? Being out there in the cold trying to catch decent photos is a challenge, isn’t it?! I have my husband drive me around, so I can jump out of the car and back in before my fingers drop off from the cold and the camera freezes up.
