Jefferson Memorial Ice

One of my 2016 goals is to be more present. More mindful of everything I’m doing and take the time out to appreciate all the good times I’m experiencing. A lot of times I rush through things and at the end of the day I hardly remember what I did.

So when I was out making this image yesterday I was noticing the swirls in the icy water. Like I put my camera down and and really stood there to look at what interested me so much about this scene. I thought the patterns were so cool and can only assume it’s from wind. The circular motions and untouched ice was something like I had never seen at the tidal basin. What a beautiful footprint nature left.
