This is a macro shot of ice melting in the sun… A reliable sign spring is just around the corner!

Personally I’m happy to see ice and snow give in to the sun, in spite winter did give a lot of pleasant photo opportunities.

Soon it is time for flowers and insects also in my place!

hello pablo. wow!!! you really captured the moment. love the glow. is like an ice sculpture. So sharp and clear. Great depth and luminosity. Just Fantastic! Gabriel

Hi Pablo!
WoW! Beautiful shot, colors and details. Nice work!

Hello Pablo,
Nice photo. Colors, POV and composition are wonderful. Only I find the colors a bit oversaturated and a little out of focus. TFS :)

Hi Pablo,
I am looking forward to spring too. The colors of spring are much better then winter.
This is a great macro of melting ice. I like the combination of dark wood with the illuminated pieces of ice. Good satturation and contrast. The focus is perfect with the main point of focus in the middle.

Thanks Pablo, I have really enjoyed seeing the snowy winter scenes, and the melting snow is now going to give you some great Spring shots for us... As you said, flowers and insects will be on the way!
I look forward to it for you, TFS,

Hi Pablo, a nice simple and effective composition with great detail and wonderful colours in the ice. TFS. I also wish spring would hurry.

This is the "good bye, winter" photo. Great moment and details, from now on let the flowers and green photos to come. (Although I bet you still have some of your fantastic icicles shots hidden in your personal photobank) :-)

Regards, Petru

Hi, Pablo!
This macro is a bit of an abstraction work, that is nice to have hanging on the wall. I like the transparent colors and the focus. Excellent idia and relization.

Hi Pablo, Well seen and captured to show a change of seasons. The colours seen here are unusual and puts a new angle of what we expect to see with such a scene. Good textures here also. Well done. Rgds Murray.

Nice macro shot of the ice. I like the fact the picture is dark. Gives it a bit of a mysterious effect.

What a lovely register.
Very pleasant. I feel the same way when I see the ice & snow melt away, giving "way" to the sun.
This is, IS a great capture.
Well composed.
Very well presented.
Regards, Mario.
