Ice Crystals - Shape Formations

Updated: Jan 3

These are just some photos I took after the floods in Aberdeenshire in early 2016. There was a very hard frost which followed. With the volume of water around after Storm Frank some of the puddles formed very interesting ice crystals.

These images I captured at the side of a road between Oldmeldrum and Methlick. It was caused by a large puddle in the road and cars throwing up the water. The hedgerow became really wet and subsequently froze.

A lot of the time, when I have my camera with me, something catches my eye. I have to listen to my gut feeling if it is worth taking a photograph. If I don't take the image, I might not see it again. I will consider things like - if I can sell the image or what benefit I will have to taking the picture. Is it a case of just documenting the image? Or could it be a portfolio photograph?
