Ice Patterns – 05

These fantastic patterns appeared on our conservatory windows one morning earlier this week.┬áTo good to miss, I took the opportunity to take a few shots using a 60mm macro lens on the Olympus EM1 Mark II – and a tripod.

All backlit with natural light from the garden – and tweaked ( a touch ) in Lightroom Classic CC.
