Anemone in ice shot for the PG101 "Anything in Ice" theme. I've been wanting to try flowers in ice for a while, but have been held back by a reluctance to sentence a vibrant flower to a cold death. With this shot, the anemone was starting to fade before I submerged it and popped it in the freezer, so I decided to think of it as a second life.
