Hi Torgny

A very cool blue feeling series of photos here. I guess, very apt as you are coming out of a winter..... and slowly coming towards spring, right?

That partly frozen water makes for interesting photos.

I like the fact you can see through the water in photo 1.

Photo 2 with the clear reeds in the foreground is wonderful.

The lovely crisp tree horizon / silhouette in photo 3 makes this attractive for me.

Photo 4 is perhaps my least favourite of the group, but still a good photo. It really impresses me of the coldness (especially so as we're still enjoying warm autumn weather here in South Australia). Will be 34 degrees Celsius again later this week!

Isn't photo 5 just a reversal (mirror image) of photo 1? At least that's what I think!!

Paul

The first image in the 'storyboard' made me feel I set off for a tripontheshell of a huge turtle... Btw, the aperture speed reaching only 1/125'' good for handheld shot cranking the iso up to 1600 @ a relatively large aperture off/4 hints the dimness of the setting reminiscent of the Thule!

Yes, Paul. When the ices melt there will be light from different layers and also reflections from different layers

You are right about #4. It's a "crappy crop" (if there is such an expression) You know, there are people who never are satisfied with what they do. I can sit for hours with various cropping alternatives ("sticky fingers")

#4 is a cropping of this image and I also did a "reed only cropping" since reed is my favourite subject

Thank you, bahadir. Funny, suppose you know about the Iroquois creation myth

http://www.cs.williams.edu/~lindsey/myths/myths_12.html

Yes, Tacitus must have been a very curious man. Had a source critical course once. Think the Ultima Thule was the most northern area he covered (or perhaps let be covered) but that's your subject
