Face from the Storm

I had planned to concentrate on an imagined spring but really wanted to share two views of the same piece of snow drift.  The view changed as I moved from left to right.  It was a beautiful melting day on Friday when these were taken. They are unaltered.

Made me think immediately of that Japanese artist and his Wave, Mary.
Mary MacADNski: John mentioned that as well. My first painting was of a fancy snowdrift.
Almost looks like a profile of a witch...cool
Mary MacADNski: I saw so many shapes when these were forming. Now that they are melting I am getting a whole other view.
Drifting snow crystals and a bit of shadow... two beautiful images Mary...
the pictures of the snow that i posted today aren't what you would call beautiful....petersmile
Mary MacADNski: The drifting that made this was days before. This was a warm day and everything was beginning to droop. I am sure we will get another storm or two before the end of April.
Snow drifts are wonderous things, Mary! I love these - you captured them beautifully - and I like how in the lower image the crest mimics the object in the background.
Mary MacADNski: The object in the background is an old iron wagon wheel in my garden. It will be a while before I have flowers in front of it.

A wave of snow
Mary MacADNski: It was amazing to watch the shapes when these were forming. Now that they are melting I am getting a whole other view.
wonderful snow wave Mary!
Great capture.
Mary MacADNski: It has been cool for the last week, first forming, now melting.
Nature's own art Mary
Mary MacADNski: You are so right, Bill and it inspires me greatly.

a gorgeous photo - I love it very much! Canada in the deepest winter (s. also peter's photos) and Europe in blooming spring!
Mary MacADNski: The snow is disappearing very quickly. On sunny days the solar rays melt it and today it is raining. Hurrah!
A wave literally frozen in time, Mary. Beautiful.
Mary MacADNski: It is that for sure and but for the camera it can not be preserved.
no other place than nature to go for interesting forms and textures..
Mary MacADNski: How right you are. My first painting on canvas was of a gorgeous natutal snow form.
that is a very well taken macro
Mary MacADNski: This is not at all macro. I am standing across my yard to take this shot of a snowbank that was formed by wind.
Love the first shot. A tsunami wave of snow that reminds me of a famous Japanese print.
Mary MacADNski: Yes, that has been mentioned. It does have that blue colour and shape.
Pretty amazing looking at this MAry!
Mary MacADNski: I watched it forming for two stormy days last week. It changed by the hour. Now I am watching it melt and it changes by the hour.

I especially like the "leading edge" of wave. I bet this changed minute by minute as the temperature changed.
Mary MacADNski: That is exactly how it was though for the two shots I simply moved from left and right. They were taken within minutes. Watching it form was during a two day blizzard.
I like this
Mary MacADNski: Thank you.
The bottom shot is excellent because of that repeat of shapes.
Mary MacADNski: That is my garden. I won't have any daffodils there for awhile.

Now, I will look forward to more snow again....splendid idea and well captured. Love the blues against the pristine whites...
Mary MacADNski: I love the blue shadows of snow so well too.

What a great shot
Mary MacADNski: Thank you, Shane.
A fine "natural abstract"!
Mary MacADNski: It is exactly that. Mother nature is beautiful in every season.

Lovely shapes,Mary.
Mary MacADNski: The shapes were ever changing during their formation and during their demise.

An art form giving you an art form, Mary
Mary MacADNski: That is the truth. I just had to hold the camera and move around. Mother nature formed these wonderful shapes.

Great images - there is certainly a feeling of movement and motion
Mary MacADNski: It was so beautiful that day. Warming up after all that cold and snow.
I thought it was a wave at first very well spotted.
Mary MacADNski: Glad to see you around. How are you doing?
