Intimate Icy Landscape

in GEMSlast month

I think I should post the Ice photos I have taken in the past weeks, before the Winter is over and all ice has melted, although cool icicles might be even more interesting on a hot Summer day ;)

Intimate Icy Landscape
Frozen WaterfallsIcy Landscape - Frozen Waterfalls

So, as promised in my post Frozen Morning last week, here are some of my ice photos.

Green and Orange and White and Ice
❖ please click the image for fullsize view ❖

Of all the ice photos I shot this Winter I somehow like the photo above most. In my eyes the white water and white or transparent ice makes a very nice contrast to the orange rock and the green moss on the right side.

The small waterfall is surrounded by fresh ice, partly clear as glass. Soon the water will have a transparent cover, made from ice.

Why did I title this post "Intimate Icy Landscape"?

Well, the "Icy" part should be clear, but what is an "Intimate Landscape" photo? In my researches I have found, that the American photographer Eliot Porter might have created this term: Eliot Porter had the first exhibit of colour photography at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in 1979 – an exhibit titled Intimate Landscapes.

I would say, an intimate landscape photo is a part of a bigger landscape scene, showing smaller details, but different from close-up images or macros. It's somewhere between the grand vista landscape photo and a close-up or macro of a flower.

I have taken these photos on January 10, 2021. About one week later, when I have been in this area again, which is near where I live, I have taken more, but a little bit different ice photos. If I find some time during next week, I want to edit these photos and make one more Intimate Icy Landscape post ... before the Spring is here ;)


Information

All photos were taken with the Canon EOS R and my EF 70-200mm f/4 L lens.
If you are interested in the image data, I leave all EXIF and IPTC information stored in the pictures.


I hope you are all doing well and you take care for yourself and for the ones you love ... stay safe and healthy.

Intimate Icy Landscape would have been perfect two days ago, I would have wedged myself between or onto the rock simply to cool down.

Stunning photography with moss encapsulated in ice, flow hanging sedately midair.

Look forward to seeing your next round, each time I think I have seen exceptional you pull another trick with your camera to surprise viewers.

You're too kind, dear Joan, but I wished I could photograph and post more often.
These times will come back when the pandemic ends and a few big projects at work will be finished by the end of 2021 or mid of 2022 .

Yeah, this ice would have been able to cool half South Africa down, but unfortunately, it would have melted on the way to you 😉

Thank you so much for curating and the rehive, have a wonderful week, dear Joan, and take care to stay healthy.

Being busy is good, fortunately you have projects through these times. Many places down here have either closed down, or are on short weeks. Many work from home, offices now stand empty, perhaps the time will come where one only rents space for weekly meetings, old office space converted into living space, who knows....

Offer of some ice would have been gratefully accepted, currently cooler with outer edge of Cyclone Eloise giving us relief from the heat for a day or two. North Eastern side at Kruger National Park is being flooded after passing over Mozambique and Madagascar.

Some !WINE to cheer you up, a !BEER to settle after commuting and thanks for tokens I still am learning more about 🤣 Have a wonderful last week of January!

Yeah, you are very right, and I wouldn't mind the work if I could make photo trips without any restrictions from time to time 🙂

I hope the cyclone didn't destroy too much, but I believe you that you appreciate some cooler air in the Summer heat.

January, the first month of 2021 is almost over. Time runs so fast these days it seems to me.
There are not so many tokens as on the other Blockchain, and that's good 😉

Lovely to see you posted Hannes. It’s been awhile but I know you are busy at work.

Your Intimate Icy Landscape is gorgeous.It’s impossible to pick a favorite. I love the small waterfall surrounded by the ice and how the ice in the next photo remind me of teeth or bristles in an old hair comb or brush.

Happy Monday dear Hannes, stay well and safe.🤗

!BEER

Hihi, the hair comb comparison is great, Jo 🤣

Work is really exhausting since last year, and it will stay that way for a while longer, but the days go fast, and if I can post from time to time it's enough 😁

Thank you so much for your nice compliment and for the goodies and the rehive, my dear 🤗

Unbelievably beautiful photos of ice❤️ ... Especially the waterfall, that's second photo...
And intimate photography expresses, I would never say it can relate to photography. But now that I have thought a little better, the detail of the photo can be close, intimate ...
Have a nice evening @johannpiber

Good morning and thank you so much for your kind words, @Suzana72 🤗

In these strange pandemic times with all the measures and restrictions I have to look for other photo opportunities, because most of the big vistas and waterfalls and ... are not available to me at the moment, and I think it will stay that way for a while longer. So, macros and such intimate landscape photos is my way to still go out and take photos, although I don't have a lot of time.

Thanks a lot again, @Suzana72, I wish you a wonderful week and take care to stay healthy 🔆


Cheers and !BEER

Good evening @johannpiber 😊 and
most welcome 🤗
Yes, unfortunately we are limited. But it is important to have a place to go nearby, and at least rest our thoughts there and do what we love ....we take photos...🥰

I started writing to you this morning and now I'm done 😂

You're welcome @johannpiber 😊
Thank you for your kind wishes... I wish you a wonderful week too.. and take care to stay healthy 🌞

Vaccination started here, and with you? Are you for a vaccine?

Good morning and thanks for your kind reply, dear @Suzana72 😊

I know you are very right, but I am in urgent need of a change, but family and work don't allow it at the moment ... maybe in a few weeks everything looks better 🙂

At the moment I am not for a vaccine shot for myself, but maybe if my family decides to get one my mind will change.

I wish you a great day 😊🌞

Good morning dear @johannpiber 🤗
My pleasure.
Yes, it is a personal thing, and I miss being able to travel ... But I try to be satisfied with what I have, because I can walk in the woods and it is an escape from everyday life ..
But we'll see in a couple of weeks how it will be ...😊
I'm not for the vaccine either. Panic forces people to make various decisions, and time will show whether they are correct.

I wish you a great day too @johannpiber 🌞

I'm only a bit frustrated at the moment - the border to my favourite places is so near and I can't cross it.
But you are right, we should wait patiently and maybe in a few weeks it all looks different.

Yes, I want to wait and see how the vaccine works and then decide whether I take it or not.


Cheers and !BEER

Good evening@johannpiber ✨
I understand you completely ...😊
We have to somehow manage to find new vistas, and activate old places and look at them with different eyes! And so we endure.
Yes, I think so too .. I'm waiting and I'll see ..

Have a nice evening ✨🌌

So, let's wait an see and hope... 😀
Good morning and have a nice day, @Suzana72 😊

Very wonderful ice photos! It's amazing to see this icy landscape. I love all of your photos. In the meantime, the first one is my most favorite, too. The same reasons as yours. Great capture! 🙃

Ice is always amazing, even more when you look at the details, what's frozen below the clear ice. Sometimes you can encounter nice surprises :)

Thank you very much for your nice comment and that your favourite photo is the same as mine, @tangmo, have a wonderful week 😊

Fabulous photos once again with that special mountain goat touch 😉
As you know, I don't like to pick favorites as I love them all and each one has it's own special character of beauty.
Nature is indeed very intimate and beautiful and I am looking forward to the next issue.
Well done here my friend!

Good Morning Zac,

I don't know if I'll find enough time this week. In between there are always a few minutes to reply or to comment, but photo editing or making a post is another thing. I have 3 monitors in front of me at work, and although I loved such a view (the more monitors the better ;) when I was younger, I don't want to look into one when I come home in the afternoon.

Anyway, I thank you very much for your nice compliments, Zac, and I wish you a great day :)


Cheers and !BEER
!invest_vote

Hahaha, my third Good Morning here Hannes.

Now you are really blessed for the day. I also occasionally have an allergy for monitors and I have only one, so I can imagine how you feel.

Making a good post always takes time and I understand your reluctance to engage in it.
Now add our 5 minute waiting period for the uploading of each photo to a post and you will go crazy.
Luckily I am already crazy and I chase the dog around while waiting for a picture to load 🤣

Leaving you with a smile here!

Cheers and thanks!

And this is my third "Hi Zac" today 😉

I need more monitors at work for an efficient workflow, and if I had more space I would add a fourth monitor 😁

Yes, I am really blessed with an extreme fast internet. If I had to wait for such a long time for a photo to upload I would go mad 😜

Unfortunately, I often forget that many people including you have a slow internet connection, because I upload my photos in higher quality and bigger size than I would need.


Cheers and !BEER
!invest_vote

Hi Hannes,

Well said lol.
I will never cope with two monitors, never mind four, as I even struggle with one 🤣
A fast internet must be a great blessing and we do have fibre here, but it is way too expensive for us.

I used to drop the pixels in my photos, as then they will load faster, but it affects the quality of the pictures. So now I simply have to endure the wait.

Cheers and thanks!

At home I would need two for easier photo editing, but at work I have a couple of different software programs running which I can easier manage when I have more monitors.

I just decrease the size of the images, but not their quality or compression rate. That makes them a bit more lightweight, but most are still at 4-6 megabytes.


Cheers and !BEER
!invest_vote

Yeah, I have seen a German resident here working on one of my Peregrine falcon shots that I gave him as a gift. He also had two screens and worked in photoshop.
I have an old Dell Optiplex and one screen and that's more than enough to keep me occupied 🤣
We have two identical setups here and while Marian works with her students at the Seminary on her PC, I do my own thing here on mine.

Hahaha, I can cut a 4mg to 1.2kb very easily, but like I said, the quality of the photo is not the same.

Cheers and thanks!

Yes, a multiple monitor setup is very useful. At work I couldn't work with one single monitor only anymore. At home I just don't have enough space on my desk :(

Right, you can decrease the weight of an image easily, but as you say, the quality of the photo is going down too.
