Ice Snow Sandwich Towers Film

Ice Snow Sandwich Towers Film, originally uploaded by e s c h e r.

It is very hot and humid here today so what does everyone like on a hot day? An argument? Sand in your sandwiches? Sun burn? No an ice cream of course! And I have made three just for you.

Apologies about the wind noise on this clip but my camera likes to ham it up and make everything sound like there is thunder.

The main thing I learnt when making this is that low winter sunshine lights up ice in quite a beautiful way but also that you will cast a shadow and if you don't notice and then move then it is pretty obvious where you have been standing. In the first section where my shadow tries to muscle in - it is the Cumbrian fells in the background with a fresh blanket of snow and Lancaster, Morecambe and Heysham down below.

The stacks are made from alternating layers of frozen snow and sheets of ice.

This video doesn't do justice to the quality of the light, it is easier to portray with the control that a still camera give you. I hope it comes across in this, this and this
