Someone was asking about icicle photography recently which reminded me of these from a few years ago.
Sun was from my 9 or 10 o'clock and fairly low in the close-up, and from my 5 o'clock and fairly low in the wider view.

As to the first one, I am really enjoying it. It appears to me that the water in the creek is rendered as long exposure or "feathery water." If it is, this is a great case where it isn't a cheap trick, but rather a fundamental part of a diffuse background, where the subject is obviously the ice cycles. I had suggested to some people that "feathery water" was a cliche in their photo, but here it is not. This is nicely lit and composed and provides a delicious sample of a small scene. And it is a scene that is well composed and articulated. I can't see how this could be better. Thanks for posting this great looking "small scene."

Thanks,
A longer exposure was too smoky looking and shorter made the water look like ice! this was 1/6th sec.
This is at the bottom of a weir on the Exe in the UK and it's rare to be cold enough for this to happen.
