Found these beautiful ice patterns two days ago. Looks almost unreal. To me it’s like unknown paintings just waiting to be discovered. To photograph this you need good light to make it look right. I photographed these images in the last afternoon light. I used a small Canon SX50. The raw image was color corrected in Lightroom 4.
Usually there’s a lot of snow this time of year. But right it’s just raining. So now it’s darker than ever. It’s sure hard to take the photographs you would like to. Snow brings magic to your photos. But the other day I was lucky. It was snowing for a few hours. And this is how it turned out.

…but it’s real nice too. Especially today. Photographed on a small IXUS HS220. Vivid colors as setting in the camera. Works almost as the landscape picture style on a DSLR. Gives saturated color with lots of contrast. Not bad for a compact camera. Click on the images for larger view.
