Abstract Nature

The puddles with ice are becoming fewer and fewer, but there are still some interesting abstract designs to be found in the clash of temperatures and natural environs.

Tracks in general are an item of interest in theland of frozen tundra - the tracings left by vehicles can be surprising interesting and asymmetrical when modified by the elements and other passers by.

I love the layers of blue in this image. (By the way those are ducks on the right hanging out on what is left of the ice.)

Grasses in the marshes when they thaw can also yield fascinating sculptural groupings.

In that last one, I like the way the water looks almost like tufts of white interspersed in contrast to the brown and gray tufts. I had to look closely to see that it was negative space. Kewell
