On Frozen Pond

    Newer Older

    If you want to see how I made this (and how you can too!), visit my HDR Tutorial. I hope it gives you some new tricks!

    I probably should not have been standing in the middle of this frozen pond.

    But when you are raised in Texas and you rarely get to see anything frozen, you get fascinated by large frozen bodies of water. I just stared at it for a long time like a deer that's never seen headlights in the forest. I felt the saying, "When in Rome", and somehow replaced it with "When in Reykjavik..."

    I slowly shuffled my feet out to the middle, using my tripod as an Imperial Hoth Walker to secure my footing. Once I got to the right spot for the lens, I ripped off a few shots before heading over to the safely of the shore.
