Picture of an Ice Bird

This picture was taken several years ago by my daughter, I do have her permission to share it.

We were walking along the shores of a lake near our house in the winter and she noticed this chunk of ice which almost looked like a penguin, so she took a picture of it.

I quite like the colors in the image and will note that it can be hard to take pictures in the winter as snow and ice are typically lacking strong contrast and as such tend to do poorly in photography unless there is something else in the image.

I think this photo was taken in January of 2008 the lake was still frozen and there were large ridges of ice all around. The weather was warm enough to get out of the house for a change!

Picture by my daughter.

Do you think it looks like a bird?

Very interesting photo. Does look like a bird, also perhaps a dolphin? A lot of depth and the colors draw your attention.
