Stunning Macro Photographs of Painted Ice

West Hartford, Connecticut photographer and psychologist Cliff Briggie uses ice, paint, light and water to make these abstract ‘ice paintings’. Instead of using Photoshop, he relies on the ice and paint to morph into something unexpected and unique. He writes: ‘A photograph captures a moment too brief to see. Within the moment is a flash, color, form, or movement-always different, always extraordinary. Little pieces of paint take on a life of their own, suddenly exploding, colors streaming everywhere and then they are gone forever. It is at once so breathtaking, heartbreaking, and compelling that I have missed more than a shot or two.’
