After yesterday’s afternoon with the Mallards, I began shooting some of the various patterns in the frozen surface of Lake Ontario where it met the open water. Often it seems that there is an endless array of patterns to capture. All the images here were photographed with my 80-400 VR lens (with VR off) and a Nikon polarizer. The polarizer was used to slow down time so that the rippled surface of the lake would be rendered smooth. Here are my favorite ice-scapes from yesterday.
