Japanalia from Yokohama, Japan

"Arctic sculpture".....with a beautiful reflection. Light is playing on the ice and maybe (?) warming it a bit? 'cause you cannot live for ever in the "ice age"!!!! I'd have gotten all tired by now of so much snow and ice!!!

28 Mar 2008 5:43am

@Japanalia: Since a couple of days my artic sculture has begin to melted down, so it's warming up more than a bit!

lovely creation. Did you freeze while taking this image?

28 Mar 2008 6:34am

@Rags: I didn't freeze since as you could see there was plenty of sun that day.

Deux coups de cœur sur am3 aujourd'hui :
le premier et le deuxième.

gilles d.

J'adore ta photo, Gilles !
Lorsque j'ai démarré [email protected], je voyais ce genre d'images.

J'aime bien toutes les photos de notre photoblogue,
mais j'adore lorsqu'un photographe soumet une photo comme la tienne.
Tu as probablement photographié cet endroit
au meilleur moment de l'année :
un court instant sur 366 jours,
bravo !

C'est très flatteur, venant de mon webmestre, merci.

Beautiful photo and reflection!

@medam961: I'm quite happy about that one.

Earnest from Oklahoma, United States

Aptly named, very clear, and initially strange. It makes the viewer pause to actually look at this photo.

28 Mar 2008 11:13am

@Earnest: This icy eye is a drain pipe to prevent the flood of the field behind.

MJ from Delaware, United States

28 Mar 2008 12:17pm

Evelyne Dubos from Le Mans, France

Belle sculpture de glace improvisée par les caprices du temps. Dommage peut-être de ne pas en avoir la totalité dans le reflet, d'autant plus que ses couleurs étaient bien belles.

28 Mar 2008 2:50pm

@Evelyne Dubos: J'ai ressenti le même regret mais j'ai coupé volontairement le reflet dans l'eau parce que des hautes herbes enlevaient de l'impact à la réflection et dans un autre angle de prise de vue, je perdais la réflection.
Merci pour ton commentaire très apprécié.

Elle from Australia

Wow it sure is icy over there! I wonder if I'll ever freeze if I ever go to Canada. Well done :)

28 Mar 2008 3:07pm

@Elle: The sun of your clouds sunset will melted down our ice and snow.

MaryB from Staffordshire, United Kingdom

Very nice indeed, the shapes created by the ice are wonderful and the reflection is out of this world.

28 Mar 2008 5:54pm

@MaryB: The shapes creators were: water, pipe and swirling cold wind.

Laurent from Lyon, France

une si jolie lumière, un beau piqué et une bonne composition. La magie d'un décor figé par la glace. J'adore.

28 Mar 2008 7:50pm

@Laurent: La création de la magie de ce décor revient à mère nature.

Steven from Chicagoland, United States

That "eye" sure wasn't crying "crocodile tears." Great interpretation as to what you see.

28 Mar 2008 10:19pm

@Steven: I'm sure the eye wasn't crying "crocodile tears" because crocodile would have been frozen to death....!

Thanks for that interesting comment.
[email protected] - Gilles Martineau

Anne from White Rock, Canada

Absolutely splendid photo! The ice, reflection, etc. all perfectly exposed! It's like some prehistoric bird's neck,head and beak, and the "eye" is marvelous! Still so much Ice out there yet? It snowed here for about 4 hours today and we are supposed to be in the Banana Belt of British Columbia! :-)

29 Mar 2008 12:10am

@Anne: Your comment is appreciated. This picture was taken at January end, it should be melted down now. How come that part of BC is name Banana Belt, to me you are very far from Central America?
