SOFT ICE AT ABISKO RIVER

Abisko National Park, Sweden

I simply can´t get enough of winter - I get so inspired and just have to get out! The snow and frost simplifies the landscape and the light is amazing what else can you ask for? ICE, I've always been fascinated by ice and its forms, shapes and colours in nature. In February 2010 I was on a photo trip to the northern part of Sweden in the Abisko National Park. After a long period with temperatures below minus 20° the temperature suddenly raised to around zero for a couple of days and melting started in the mountains, the once frozen river became soft and unsafe. I walked along the river a saw this great motif, I think it's funny, yet simple and powerful. I used my tilt/shift wide-angle lens to make the surface sharp all over in combination with a small aperture.
