Winter, for the most part, brings about a lull in new image making for me. But the abstract qualities to be found in the season's ice formations are like no other offerings Mother Nature provides during the other 3 seasons. They represent frozen moments in time much like a photograph itself.....even if of somewhat longer duration than 1/60th of a second. But unlike a photograph, there is precious little 'permanance' to their presence. They are fleeting in nature and viewable for only brief periods of time......much like many art 'installations'. And though the 'installations' occur during the harsher portions of winter, the gentle curving lines that can often be found still offer a hint of the movement inherent to their liquid variation present during the other 3 seasons.
