Day Two of Five

 

Today I went to one of my favorite nearby places, Kitchi Gammi Park. There's always something to photograph here; the landscape is always changing along the lakeshore, especially in the winter. It's eerie to stand on the edge of the lake and listen to the ice shifting and creaking around you.

I found a thin sheet of ice that had broken up over a rock jutting out into the lake. I thought this would be a perfect chance to try a technique called focus stacking. This is a blending of several images with different points of focus from foreground to background. Commonly used in macro photography, focus stacking produces a detailed image with sharp focus from front to back. I used 12 different exposures used to make this photo.
