Lake Superior Ice Caves 1756

Philip Schwarz’ recent blog entry “Winter Photography at the Apostle Islands Ice Caves” has me jonesing to get back there this winter.

In the meantime, I was looking through some of my photos of the ice caves from 2009 and came across this one I hadn’t processed. I rather like it now, even though at the time I didn’t like it enough to do anything with it. That’s the way it goes with me: I see something that inspires me to make a photograph, but then when I’m going through them for initial processing only a few catch my eye as being worth working on further. If I wait a while, though, and go back through them again, I’ll find some that I like again and want to spend a little time on.

So, does this grab you? Or should I have left it where it was, in the softly spinning darkness of my hard drive? Please share your thoughts & comments below!

Funny how that works — something you dismiss at first glance offers possibilities later on. This one is like that. Well worth pulling out, dusting off, and working with.

Thanks, pj! I’m still working on this one a bit – not entirely happy with the contrast or detail yet…
