[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is a little bit different from my usually objects. But nowadays everywhere has been covered by snow, it must be a suitable object for main actual thema. I took it in 2007 during a phototrip to Keles. It was very cold day like today :)

I found this fallen poplar leaf on a frozen lake near Keles which was named as Barakli Göleti. It was a sunny but so cold day. The leaf was heated by the sun rays and melted the ice and buried into ice layer.

Have a nice day.

Fine abstract image, the leaf may be frozen and dead but your image is very much alive. tfs.

You have created a work of art from this simple phenomenon of nature, Fevzi, my friend.
The image is very artistic and original and a technically superb capture.
The framing you have chosen shows how much care must have gone into it.
Well done and thanks!

Dear Fevzi!

Congratulations for this superb picture. Now that you know my style, you easily can understand that I like that kind of pictures very much. The ice-window opens on the death... so symbolic, so well seen and realized!

Kind regards

Hi Fevzi,
I love this, it's like a fossilizes leave, except in ice instead of rocks. Great texture, lovely details on the frozen liquid. Artistically composed. Simple thing in life, but so much beauty, we just have to looks for it. You found it and capture it with such nice POV and share it with us. Thanks. Beautiful work, congrats.
