Keep Your Eyes Open For Cool Stuff

September 14th, 2011 by Mike Moats

If you spend enough time out in mother nature, she will occasionally come up with some cool stuff. I’m always on the look out for those unique opportunity to capture something special.

I was shooting ice abstracts on Stony Creek Lake, and found this outline of a ducks head in the ice.

I saw this face, two eyes and a nose in a flowing river. Some say the nose could be a trunk of an elephant.

In a gorge of upstate NY I found this heart carved in the gorge floor. Don’t know if it was man made or natural.

Here I am trapped in these bubbles shot at the edge of a small stream, bubbles created from a small waterfall.

We have all seen faces in tree trunks, rock walls, etc, look for cool stuff like this when you are out in the field.
