Sometimes photography is described as freezing a moment in time...well these photos are quite literal in that way!
A few weeks ago I took a mini-series of photos at the Liverpool Festival Gardens as the drop in temperature had frozen the lake. The day before I went for a walk there with my girlfriend, and as we approached the lake our attention was drawn to the strange sound created by a skipping stone across a frozen lake.
I spotted striking ice formations at the edge of the lake which I thought could make for some great macro photos, so I came back the following day.
Thanks for taking a look at this blog! I hope you enjoyed this mini-series. I really enjoyed shooting these photos (despite the cold!) and editing them - I've even had a play around with one of the photos in this blog to create the mirrored image above. It was a welcome break to work on a smaller set of photos than I'm used to.
Competition time! I'm doing another print-giveaway where a lucky winner will win a print of their choice from this blog post. To be in with a chance all you need to do is leave a comment below and let me know what photo you would like as a print and why - I'll pick my favourite comment as the winner. Get your answer in by the end of Sunday the 18th of February. Good luck!
