Nature clicks #192 - Icicles


Just a simple click made today in best sunlight when I came back from a quick lunch trip to town. The gutter on the south side of the house didn’t do what it is supposed to do. It was still frozen solid inside and some water that had melted from the roof spilled over and froze again on the branches of the barberry bush down below. The icicles looked interesting with the sun coming from behind but when I had the image on screen in Lightroom I thought it was still missing something. I moved the temperature slider for the white balance setting quite a bit into the blue, giving it a much cooler, punchier look. Wouldn’t do this with my wildlife images, but hey, it’s artsy-fartsy… ;-)
