I think I like the square photo format almost as much as the panorama format. This shot is exactly what I had in mind when I left home for the days shoot; big Alberta sky with lots of simple foreground interest. The forecast was promising; temperatures just above freezing and partly sunny - perfect for photography.
I am pretty happy with this shot, it's a fairly simple composition with lots going on in the details. In particular I like the way the big clouds balances the pattern in the ice.
