Theo Bosboom - Drift ice


A picture from a phenomenon that is pretty rare in Holland: piles of drift ice along the dike of the IJsselmeer. Last winter we had some weeks with severe frost. When it got warmer again, the ice started melting and the strong wind formed big piles of drift ice, sometimes several metres high. It was the first time that I witnessed a scene like this and I can’t wait for the next time! Merry Christmas and best wishes for the new year to my fellow photographers and all followers of the blog, see you back in 2012!

    Unfortunately, I never witnessed this phenomenon of drifted ice and that's why I'm enjoying your photo. Great lines which come together and gives me the impression that I'm there too. And.....beautiful light!
