First of all, HAPPY NEW YEAR! This is technically the first true post of 2018. So as always, in keeping with my Blog format, I just skip all the 2017 reflections and 2018 resolutions. So, with that, let me jump into this post, on multi coloured ice. I first saw this last year, just before New Year’s in fact. It was a no-brainer to wait a bit and get a photo of this. Regrettably, the Sun was blocked from the low overcast sky, but I still think the defuse light made the shots just as good.
I laughed when I first seen the painted icicles on the rock faces of Terrace Mountain. Obviously, another artist was busy at work creating this. I sort of felt like I was steeling the artist’s work, but this is after all this is in the public domain, so it is fair game for photographers. For the record, I did not add the painted colours on the ice. Please do not accuse me of public vandalism or causing harm to the environment–assuming this is some form of lead based paint, or something toxic–this is someone else’s doing. I am just a bystander with a camera who happened to drive by, and stop, to admire it.
I also took some other shots of the non-coloured ice on the same stretch of road. I am surprised the people, or person, did not squirt paint on all the other ice chunks along this road. Anyway, I hope you like it; I thought it was neat.
