ICE


Natural patterns have a strong appeal, so using them can strengthen an image. In this case I looked for patterns in ice, taking a number of shots from different angles until I found one that worked. Colour monotone is also another tool that will often be used by a photographer to enhance or draw the attention of the viewer to specific parts of an image. Today's image is in colour, but due to the narrow range of colours one might mistake this for a black and white conversion. If you find these ideas interesting, try working with patterns and colour the next time you go out to make images.
