Week 3 - Melting the Winter Chills

This week my theme was hot beverages. With the inevitable cold of January (saw some -10F this week), hot beverages are a must to keep me going. But how to photograph on in a unique way?


I thought of bring out some hot chocolate out into a sunny snow bank. What I didn't expect was the mug to warm up and start melting down into the snow. But what resulted was something interesting and unique, so it's a keeper in my books. This mug was about half way to being covered when this shot was taken.


Used Topaz Lens Effects in a very minor way, and Topaz Adjust to get the big effects. Then Aperture for some minor tweaks.
