[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Ice formations on a river nearby made by the freezing temperatures and the wind, then softened by the sun's rays.
I liked the way the light (at about 135 deg. from my place) was giving a glowing look to these semitransparent "teeth".

Have all of you Happy New Year!

Burr! it looks cold Petru!
But, the lighting and composition is quite excellent!
Very nice!

It's an interesting capture Petru and what TN is all about. Great title..It may sound trite but "Sharing nature through photography" works for me!
Happy New Year!

Hi Petru,
Excellent composition here. The light is highlighting the ice well. The fist thought that came to my mind was a mouthful of T-Rex.

Happy New Year to you too!
It's very nice winter picture. The ice looks amazing and the lighting makes whole more interesting.
I like it.

Happy New Year Petru!!!

Icycles - this is what I don't like ;-) Great shapes, great composition and lighting, but... it's still winter everywhere! We're buried by snow!

My friend Petru...
Kinda fun to see we both posted ICE yesterday! You capture a very pleasant backlight here, giving life to the frozen structures...

Nice shot, Petru! Well seen! Excelent POV and lights!
(looking for your 100th!)

The great backlighting adds depth to this crative composition and title. The variety of textures are wonderful. Well done.
