“Ebb and Flow” – Duffins Creek Ice

“Ebb and Flow” - Duffins Creek Ice

Above is another photo of the winter waters of Duffins Creek, north of Pickering , Ontario. It seems the creek had frozen solid to the bottom recently, as water was flowing over the ice in many places.

This scene caught my attention as the sun revealed interesting aqua tones in the ice beneath the surface. The ice had tilted slightly, causing a bit of an ebb, or backflow, and created this wave that seems to be going against the current. The sunlit up the rocks under the water as  well as the ice slab in the background. It was a great day for light and that makes my day. It’s not a grand cascade in the mountains, but it is beautiful, nonetheless. The magic is in the light and the details the light brings forth. In this case, I chose a faster shutter to freeze the wave above the ice slab, as a long exposure lost much the detail.
