'Ice falls'
'Ice falls'

I made this image on a trip to Scotland in February 2010. The winter 09/10 was one of the coldest for many years and the ice in Glen Etive where this image was made was quite spectacular.

I made several conventional images of ice and pebble details but this image represented something that is coming closer to how I am developing my photography - it has overtones of abstract expressionism. I certainly enjoyed finding it and making it.

Technically it was a very challenging image at twice life size and I utilised techniques I had developed at my playground at Skipwith a few weeks earlier to make the image successfully (setup, focus and exposure).

Technical Details: Linhof Technikardan, 150mm lens, Provia 100. No filtration.

Location: Glen Etive, Scotland
