The new A Photo a Week Challenge is Ice, Ice Baby, a prompt that I have rather a lot of options for.
I decided to go with two photos, the earliest photo of ice in my archives and the most recent.
Ice on the water in a wheel rut in a field gateway. Taken in the mid 1970s the lines in the ice caught my eye and made me think of contour lines on a map. Photographed a few hundred yards from my childhood home. I suspect that it was taken with the first serious camera I brought, a Russian made Zenit E.
An ice sculpture formed by waves splashing on the branches of a bush on the Colpoy’s Bay shoreline. Taken a few weeks ago when I was down at the Colpoy’s Bay shoreline for the sunrise. Taken with my most recent camera, the small and light Sony a6000 with one of my DSLR lenses adapted to fit it.
The rising sun makes the patches of mist amongst the trees and bushes in a hay field glow.

I had a couple of ideas for the challenge until heading down to the Colpoy’s Bay shoreline for the sunrise on Sunday morning. I found a bush on the shoreline with some interesting ice formations on it.
I spent more time photographing the ice formations than I did the sunrise. The ice formations are created by waves splashing on the bush and freezing.
Here I started isolating interesting sections with a telephoto lens.
Monochrome Monday was taken on the way home after photographing a sunrise at the local bay.
The low sun was illuminating the patches of mist amongst the trees and bushes in a hay field so I stopped and took some shots. I thought that the layers created by the mist between the trees and bushes would make an interesting monochrome conversion.

I had a few ideas for the challenge before thinking of this photo taken when I was out with a camera testing my new 7artisans 55mm lens.
I have no idea what the name of this bush is but I’ve been photographing various aspects of it since last winter. The flowers are a new feature.
The remains of seed pods from last year and this year’s new leaves. Photographed earlier this summer with a 25mm CCTV lens adapted to fit a mirrorless camera.
