wow there's some truly amazing stuff here, stuff beyond my capabilities. Excellent.

I've been playing with booze bottles, ice cubes and finally Fairy Liquid !! but not much to offer I'm afraid (but I'll do it anyway).

Like @d00d I've been messing with ice cubes, what a faff, the photography is fairly straight forward but I found making half-decent looking ice cubes is a bit of a challenge
Yes I faffed with icecubes that weren't very transparent, googled and found something saying boil the water first, so I did and next day faffed some more, the new ice didn't really look any better, so abandoned it.

Yours is good Chris, I tried that and got a double reflection. This "creative" stuff is not my forte.

Anyway we're not even halfway through the month yet. :banana:

Thanks, I did the whole boiled water, freezing from the bottom up thing and got a few that were nearly clear but then clear doesn't photograph very well, so I used on of the cubes with some bubbles in it.

Yeah, loads of time :runaway:

@aliengrove The link to your flickr works though :) there is something almost other-worldly about the second which I really like, I also like the colours and tones in both. Thanks for contributing Jon

Cheers, saw the post and thought why not have a go? Shame about the links being odd, but at least they work.

Some very inspirational images posted so far. Thought of a Fire and Ice shot this evening, but a meh result. Ice cubes melt real fast... but the water turns the gas flames red which was interesting. And spitting. hence the light trails.

That is a really cool take on the theme Nick. Worthy of printing and putting on your wall IMO.

Nice texture Tim. My guess is either river bed or pool and roots of trees?

Do I get a :jaffa:?
Been shaving your legs in the bath again? :)
Oddly No & LOL.
It's entirely artificial, outside of the bloomberg arcade on Queen Victoria St

To get that angle involved lying on the concrete surround, hanging over the edge trying to work out where the focus box was showing up on my P&S whilst viewed at an oblique angle.
it did seem to work though.

Wonder what did all the passerby think of that weird person lying on the ground taking pictures of some strange objects? :D :LOL:
