Ice Crystals - Many nature photographers strive to capture the widest landscape scenes they can, but very often, a better technique is to extract a more "intimate landscape" from the "whole". In this case, I noticed a crunching sound as I walked along the bank of the South Platte River. Looking down, I saw a myriad of ice crystals. Steadying the camera, I captured a few of these in the viewfinder. Settings: ISO 200, 1/320th second at f4. Adjusted in Lightroom with slight adjustments in contrast and structure using Nik Software's Vivesa 2.
