White-out wall print

Winter in Poland can be severe, and when Michal took this shot on the edge of a lake in the Beskidy Mountains, it was cloudy and freezing. He had gone there specifically to take black-and-white shots and was inspired when he found a huge crack leading from the frozen lake up to the tree.


Using a wide-angle lens and an overexposure, he created an abstract image showing the tree and the crack as one and conjured up his impression on first seeing the crack that the tree was erupting from the ice.
