Burning some scrap in the fireplace, I saw some patterns that fascinated me and grabbed the camera.
The burning shape in the center is a heart cutout.
On the drive back from family Christmas up North, I was amazed by the power of the snow on the trees off Highway 65. I was struck by just how irrelevant we humans are to nature and how oblivious we can be to that fact.
As I drove on after taking this shot, I toyed with the idea of "freezer burn" and the idea of "cold fire". Using the Match Color command in PS3, I came up with a frozen winter fire of sorts.
I also tried for a fire of burning ice.
I'm not completely satisified with either one, but I think the ice burn is a bit more successful than the frozen tree fire.
I find the idea intriguing and will keep toying with it as time and concentration allow.
Next week (or next month or next year or next decade): fresh comics!
