Reeds
3 Days to 100th Year: 98/100 – Broken Reeds in Ice

I was walking along the coast on yet another sunny winter’s day and came across this wonderfully graphic scene. I love the way the warm and cool tones mix together to create an initially chaotic abstract, until you are able to recognise the reeds for what they are. Then the incredible amount of detail within the image seems to all come into focus, a shot of a shallow pool of water where the reeds have all broken off near their base and the ice has fragmented like a broken mirror.
