I actually took this a couple of days ago as well. I really got the rays by accident, and I really dig the patterns of light.

Those patterns are indeed cool. Backlighting on ice just makes it glow.

Most excellent catch - it's very mesmerizing.

Ah, I just noted this was a Lensbaby. Shooting into light does that with those. Not sure why, but you get some great refraction!

Looks like you had a CD reflecting those rays into the image. It really offsets the ice nicely.

Those prismatic rays are a lovely backdrop to the lit up ice.

So do I!! This is lovely and the play of light against ice is the only thing I like about winter. And what a great catch to get those rays! Excellent!

I tried this in B&W, it does look nice but you loose the distinct light rays.

You got double the effect - great bokeh and light rays!

The light actually cascades down into the icy droplet.. and there it ends. Very poignant. It's as if you've captured the light and frozen it in time. Excellent!

Oh this is really pretty. Love the bokeh and the sharp icy branch. :~)

Oooooh. ..I do too. And you know what a water-drop-loving-bunch of folks we are around here too. Looks like ribbon material to me :)
