Natural landscapes: the spine of winter
MOSTLY FROZEN OTTAWA RIVER, PETAWAWA, ONTARIO, CANADA
It kinda looks like a boney spine, doesn’t it? I saw this line of hardened, protruding snow from a long way off and, intrigued by the picture possibilities, walked the distance needed to use it for photos like this. My shadow is in there to fill up the relatively unremarkable snow surface; it also serves as a secondary (or primary, depending on which one you looked at first) point of visual interest.
Nikon D7100, tripod, polarizing filter.
