"Wintry Womb" - Ice Patterns in Rock Creek Park, Washington D.C.

I've got some great news for you all. I'm having a baby boy at the end of May! I'm so eager to meet the little dude. This image of some ice in a small stream in D.C. reminded me of a womb during this nervous, exciting, and life changing time.

About the Image: The main challenge of shooting an image like this is finding a composition that makes sense and flows without feeling truncated. I utilized the main bubble in the center as a focal point, and let the other lines flow outward while being careful to compose the image so that no major bubbles or features were cut off at the edge of the frame. 

Techs: Canon 7D, Canon 70-200 f/4 + 500D Closeup Filter @ 118mm. 2.5 seconds, f/22, ISO 100. Tripod.
