The dawn breaks as the sun bathes the tundra in soft golden light. A mysterious deep fishing hole enjoys the fellowship of its companions. The surrounding ice forms cubist sculpture eager men can explore. This is the place where the cycle begins. It’s hunting season.
This curious object was part of a Christmas gift my cousin Michael and his wife Krystina gave my mother some years ago. Its cube like texture reminded me of arctic scenes so I had to take a photograph. The natural lighting that was peeking through the blinds hit the top of the object at just the right angle. Some careful cropping helped to enhance the illusion and strengthen the overall composition. What does this object remind you of?
