On the Appalachian Trail between Hubbard Brook and Rt. 7 near Sheffield, Massachusetts.
This was the finest collection of ice patterns I’d ever seen in my many years of looking for and shooting them. This was a shallow swamp right on the trail with a small crumbling bridge/boardwalk running through it.
On either side of the boardwalk was a different collection of ice patterns. I went nuts shooting, then Dave found the ice bubbles and yelled out.
We could have spent much of the day at this spot and if I’d had, say, a full frame camera like the Sony RX1 or any easy to use camera I’d have shot even more.
As it was, going from the 100 or so images I took down to the nine I’m posting here has taken me weeks of comparing.
I can’t wait to get home to print some of these.
