Icescape 04 by Debra Cortese

On a bright, cold, early spring day an “Accidental Ice Mountain” was begging to be photographed and of course, Debra had her iphone camera and walked through the snow to get just a few photos.
When she finally got around to loading and viewing the photos, she was entranced by the variety of colors, textures, light, shadows and patterns that she was seeing in this one simple photo. And that is how her creative muse speaks – in patterns, light, colors. Debra obviously heard the call and began the process of selecting areas of the photo that were most intriguing. These became the derivative works for her ‘IceScapes Collection”.

“IceScape 04” is one of those derivative images. This one is a little less abstract that the others since you can easily recognize actual twigs, a bit of sky and the tip of the Gorzynski Ornery Farm Barn. Cortese was working part-time at Silver Heights Organic Plants Nursery at the time she shot the photos.The ice mountain which was apparently created by a dripping-spouting water line was a most beguiling subject for her as you can see in the entire IceScape Collection. #04 definitely shares a bit of the country farm atmosphere along with some outstanding icy blues and crisp whites of the Ice Mountain!
