Evaporative Sculpture

Melting snow, Kennebunk Maine

We have had 3 nor-easters in Maine in March, and we still have over a foot of snow on the ground. It is, however, March, and the sun is high and, even though the days have not been warm, the snow is melting fast. Or rather it is disappearing fast. Mostly it is evaporating, passing directly from solid to gas. The process produces some amazing snow sculpture on the macro scale. I had some fun with snow and telephoto macros, while ostensibly hunting for ice bells yesterday while the temperatures were still hovering in the teens at Roger’s Pond Park along the Mousam River in Kennebunk.
